“Immigration reform is a critical topic for this country,” said Conway. “The impact immigration has on counties needs to be addressed in a thoughtful way so as to maximize the benefits for both county residents and immigrants. I look forward to continuing my work on this task force in the position of Vice Chair.”
Conway was first appointed to the task force last year. As Vice Chair, Conway will participate in meetings, events and potentially testifying before congressional committees on the topic of immigration reform.
“Especially during the next few months, as the presidential administration changes, and new members of Congress take office, we must continue to engage the federal government and develop policies that benefit counties and our residents across America,” said NACo President Bryan Desloge in his letter to Conway.
NACo is an association that unites all of America’s 3,069 county governments. Through the organization, county officials come together to advocate for national policy, exchange ideas, build leadership skills and enhance the public’s understanding of county government.
