County Government Platform

What is the County Government Platform?

Scroll below for current Platform status

AACo each year facilitates a process to identify the unifying priorities of Arizona's fifteen county governments and the hundreds of elected county officials that lead their communities. County leaders identify public policy priorities of importance to their office and their community and then work with the Arizona Association of Counties to discuss those issues statewide with other county officials and other stakeholders.

The County Government Platform is created by the AACo Board of Directors by voting on each of the proposals submitted by Arizona's county officials.
