Greg Cox to Lead National Association of Counties

San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox has been chosen to lead the National Association of Counties, an 83-year-old organization representing America’s 3,069 county governments.

“I’m deeply honored and appreciative of the opportunity to take on this new challenge,” Cox said. “No level of government impacts people more directly than county government and it is critical for local government voices to be heard at the national level.”

Cox has served on the Board of Supervisors since 1995 and was previously a councilman and mayor for his hometown of Chula Vista. He has also served as President of the League of California Cities and President of the California State Association of Counties.
