July 2019 Newsletter NCRCO Store

  Welcome to the National Conference of Republican County Officials.  We are an affiliate organization of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and a Republican political entity within the National Association of Counties (NACo).  NACo provides us with meeting space at their conferences, promotes our activities, and provides limited staffing.

  More importantly, we are here to provide support and information to Republican County Officials who serve across our country.  NACo is a great organization for leaders from more than 3,000 counties to work together on local, state, and federal issues.  The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the expansion of state and federal emergency powers.  I live in Colorado, where our Governor frequently modified his emergency statewide powers due to the pandemic.  As Republican elected officials, we are the voice of reason for continued economic recovery, less government, and more freedom.

It was exciting to meet many of you at this year’s NACo Annual Conference in Maryland.  Many of us stood together to fight a resolution “Declaring Gun Violence as a National Public Health Crisis.”  The resolution’s text encouraged decreasing gun violence among youth, increasing funding to educational programs, and reducing the number of illegal firearms – all worthy goals.  However, the title of the resolution was wrong, especially given the wide use of emergency powers in many of our states.  We moved to change the title of this resolution to a “Declaration About Gun Violence.”  We lost the floor vote 51% to 48%, but this resolution reminded us about the importance of active participation at NACo by individuals with conservative values and Republican elected officials.

This year is a membership “free” COVID year.  No need to pay dues until next February.  We need your participation at NACo.  Call your State Association and ask to serve on a NACo policy committee and then join us in our Zoom calls, at the Western Interstate Region in Salt Lake City, or at the February NACo meeting.  There will be an online meeting in late January to discuss policy resolutions prior to the February legislative conference.I am looking forward to attending the Western Interstate Region in Salt Lake City, Utah in October and would encourage you to attend as well (register at  If you have any questions, my personal cell phone is 719-385-0722 and my e-mail is

I am in my third year and up for re-election next year.  Because I am busy, please include the words NCRCO in the subject of your e-mail.  I look forward to working with you this next year.
