Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman Reappointed to National Association of Counties Committee

The National Association of Counties (NACo) once again appointed Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman as chair of the Human Services and Education Steering Committee. The committee addresses social services, education, children’s services, foster care and other issues of importance to Montgomery County citizens.

“I am honored to be selected for this leadership role and to serve with my peers as we work to improve human services for the betterment of our nation,” Lieberman said.

The effects of the coronavirus pandemic present challenges for the committee to quickly address, such as the need for increased food assistance and the shortage of childcare.

“It is crucial that we address childcare in the midst of this pandemic,” Lieberman said. “Childcare workers need a regular income and many essential workers need dedicated professionals to care for their children, but we must ensure a safe environment for our children. Finding an answer is critical for our nation, and our committee is addressing this urgent issue as well as many others.”

NACo has 1,100 individual elected or appointed officials from counties across the U.S. Those officials address public policy issues and legislation. In all, there are 10 policy steering committees.

Commissioner Lieberman has been involved in both the state and national county commission organizations since taking office in 2005. She is proud to serve the people of Ohio on the County Commissioners Association of Ohio (CCAO) Board of Directors as second vice president. Commissioner Lieberman previously served as President of CCAO in 2012.
