Gila County Supervisor Tommie Cline Martin was recently elected by her colleagues as the Second Vice President of the Western Interstate Region (WIR) Board of Directors, an affiliate of the National Association of Counties (NACo).  NACo is a national organization representing counties before the United States Congress and federal agencies.  WIR is a coalition of 15 western states dedicated to the promotion of the region’s interests within NACo, including public land issues, community stability and economic development.  The WIR position serves a vital role in advancing Arizona’s interests in NACo and before the U.S. Congress.

Supervisor Martin was elected during the NACo WIR Conference in Teton County, Wyoming. This annual event convened state, federal, and local leaders to discuss policy issues confronting the 15 western states.  

After Supervisor Martin was elected, she stated, “I am deeply grateful and humbled by the support of my colleagues in the western states to serve in WIR’s leadership.  WIR is a powerful coalition and absolutely critical to our efforts to work on behalf of our constituents.  I am looking forward fighting for the enhanced use of our public lands, continued funding of Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and ensuring the economic stability of our western region.”
