By Times Record Staff
Sebastian County Judge David Hudson was recently appointed to a committee chairman position for a national organization.
National Association of Counties President Mary Ann Borgeson appointed Hudson to a one-year term as chairman of the organization’s Justice and Public Safety Steering Committee, according to an NACo news release. A Douglas County, Nebraska, commissioner, Borgeson made her leadership appointments shortly after being sworn in as NACo’s president July 15, the final day of NACo’s 84th Annual Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas.
“I am honored to lead NACo’s Justice and Public Safety Steering Committee as keeping counties safe is one of our main priorities as community leaders,” Hudson said. “Counties are working to keep people with mental illnesses out of jails, increase our disaster preparedness tools and reduce jail recidivism through continuity of health care.”
NACo is a resource, the release states, to brief county officials on “best practices” in justice system operations and emergency management. READ MORE.
