Lake County Commissioner appointed to NACo committees

RELEASE DATE: August 27, 2007

TAVARES — Lake County Commissioner Welton Cadwell was reappointed this month to vice chair of the National Association of Counties (NACo) steering committee for community and economic development.

In addition, Cadwell was also recently elected to the NACo Audit Board and reappointed to the NACo Board of Directors as one of two representatives for the state.

The reappointment by NACo President Eric Coleman, a county commissioner from Oakland County, Mich., marks the third time Cadwell will serve on the economic development committee and the second time on the Board of Directors. In 2004 and 2006, he was appointed to the economic development steering committee and in 2006 to the 120-member Board of Directors.

NACo’s 11 steering committees form the policy-making arm of the association. The Community and Economic Development Steering Committee focuses on general community development and redevelopment, housing programs, subdivision regulations, building and housing codes, public works and economic development. The work of the steering committee, if approved, becomes part of NACo’s efforts in representing the best interests of counties nationwide in Washington D.C.

“I am honored by these multiple opportunities to serve NACo and to represent the state and Lake County,” Cadwell said. “It is imperative that we explore all the issues related to economic development and assure that we have adequate resources to keep our communities viable.”

Elected as the District 5 representative to the Lake County Board of County Commissioners in 1992, Cadwell also served as president of the Florida Association of Counties Board of Directors in 2005-2006.
