Collier County District 1 Commissioner Donna Fiala was appointed to the Environment, Energy and Land Use Policy Steering Committee by the National Association of Counties (NACo)
“A great deal of NACo’s strength is in our committees and your active participation reflects and reinforces that strength,” Sallie Clark, president of the National Association of Counties, wrote in a letter to Commissioner Fiala. “The expertise and engagement of our steering committee members is a main reason why Congress and federal agencies often look to NACo for feedback on legislative policy decisions being made in Washington D.C.”
Commissioner Fiala, who was first elected as the District 1 Commissioner in 2000, is expected to stay informed of legislative and regulatory action relevant to the committee, as well as participate in conference calls every other month and attend the NACo Legislative, Western Interstate Region and Annual Conferences.
“I am so honored to be appointed to the Environment, Energy and Land Use Policy Steering Committee,” said Commissioner Fiala. “This is an important committee with legislation that could have sweeping effects on our region. To be the voice for Collier County on this committee is a great responsibility and one I take very seriously. I look forward to meeting with my colleagues nationwide as we address these important issues.”
