Blue Earth County District 2 Commissioner Vance Stuehrenberg has been appointed vice-chair of the Rural Action Caucus (RAC).

Blue Earth County Commissioner Vance Stuehrenberg.

 

Stuehrenberg was appointed during the National Association of Counties Annual Conference (NACo’s) and Exposition held July 13 through 16 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Around two-thirds of the nation’s 3-thousand 69 counties are designated as rural, with County elected officials from the areas teaming with RAC to solve issues and address development. Issues include the development of infrastructure, broadband, clinics and hospitals and road and bridge construction and maintenance.

Blue Earth County Commissioner Will Pervis also attended the event as he serves on NACo’s Justice and Public Safety Steering Committee.
