December 26, 2018

La PORTE – La Porte County Commissioner Rich Mrozinski was elected vice president of the Indiana Association of County Commissioners (IACC) Northwest District during its annual conference recently.

“Mrozinski will be a great spokesperson for their district and is dedicated to improving local government,” said Jasper County Commissioner Kendell Culp.

As district vice president, Mrozinski will represent the elected county commissioners in the Northwest district of the state, which includes the following counties: Benton, Carroll, Cass, Fulton, Howard, Jasper, Lake, La Porte, Marshall, Miami, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Starke and White.

The IACC is represented by six districts in the state. Mrozinski will serve on the IACC’s board of directors, which determines policies and legislative goals for the Association.

Marshall County Commissioner Kevin Overmyer was elected NW District President during the meeting as well. The district meeting also included discussion on current issues pertaining to county government in the Northwest District.

The elections were held during the IACC’s 2018 Annual Conference, the largest gathering of County Commissioners in the state. The three-day conference included several different workshops, and breakout sessions that were designed specifically for county Commissioner and support staff.

Mrozinski and others attended several training workshops concerning the theme of “Shaping Tomorrow Together” in all areas of local government and focused on Jail Overcrowding, Workforce Development, Emergency Preparedness, Open Door Laws, Shaping County Highway Projects and more.

Hamilton County’s Commissioner Mark Heirbrant, Sheriff Mark Bowen, EMA Director Shane Booker, and Executive Director of Communications Mike Snowden were the Keynote panelist at this year’s conference. Shaping a Safe and Secure Community is a top priority for County Commissioners. Attendees learned in this session how emergency planning, exercising, and preparedness shaped an effective coordinated response to the tragic Noblesville West Middle School shooting incident.
