Gary Starns named to Association of County Commissioners executive board

Oklahoma City — The Association of County Commissioners of Oklahoma (ACCO) elected its 2014 executive board during the recent 2013 ACCO Fall Conference at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in Norman. All 231 county commissioners are eligible to vote. Each officer will serve two-year terms beginning in January.

Roy Alford, Latimer County District 3 Commissioner, was elected president. He currently serves as vice-president and will succeed Muskogee County District 1 Commissioner Gene Wallace as president.

Gary Starns, Pontotoc County District 1 Commissioner, was elected vice-president. He currently serves as secretary/treasurer. 

Scott Hilton, Osage County District 2 Commissioner, was elected secretary/treasurer. He currently serves as ACCO District 1 board member.

“These commissioners were elected by their peers to represent their fellow commissioners and ACCO members for the next two years and I believe they will do an outstanding job,” said Gayle Ward, ACCO executive director. "They are committed to county government and to serving the citizens of their respective districts. Counties across Oklahoma are making good progress on a variety of public projects including bridge and highway issues; however, there is plenty of hard work ahead. I am confident under the leadership of these individuals  county government will continue to actively contribute to the betterment of Oklahoma.”
