Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore wins the election for National Association of Counties (NACo) second vice president.

Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore wins the election for National Association of Counties (NACo) second vice president.

The election was held at the NACo Annual Conference Monday, July 16 at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Next year, Moore will be NACo first vice president, and he will be sworn in as NACo president in July 2020.

The president of NACo is the lead advocate for county government in the U.S. Moore will serve as the liaison between the nation's 3,069 counties and all other levels of government in order to improve, advance and enrich the future of counties.

Moore's passion for county government began at an early age.
 
"I grew up in a county courthouse watching my dad serve the people as Pendleton County sheriff," Moore says. "When I was elected Boone County judge-executive 20 years ago, that fulfilled my childhood dream. However, being elected second vice president of the nation's 3,069 counties is something I could have never imagined."

Moore will serve his office term for NACo while in his current role as Boone County judge-executive. The exposure to national objectives and solutions will help Kentucky counties.

"This position puts Boone County and the entire state of Kentucky at an advantage to learn and benefit from the most innovative ideas from around the nation," Moore says.

In NACo's 83 year history, the only Kentuckian to become NACo president was then Kenton County Commissioner, who later became the county's judge-executive, Bob Aldemeyer in 1984.
