Walton named VP of state council

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Don Walton, Putnam County Councilman, was re-elected Vice President of the Association of Indiana Counties' (AIC) West Central District during the annual meeting in Fountain County.

The AIC lobbies the Indiana General Assembly on behalf of counties as well as providing technical assistance and training to county officials and employees.

"This is the third year I've been elected Vice President," Walton said.

The AIC is divided into six districts that meet every two months and hold these sort of elections every spring. The West Central District is comprised of Boone, Clay, Clinton, Fountain, Hendricks, Montgomery, Morgan, Owen, Parke, Putnam, Tippecanoe, Vermillion, Vigo and Warren counties.

Walton will serve on the AIC's Board of Directors, which determines policies and legislative goals for the Association that meets in Indianapolis.

Clinton County Auditor Jacque Clements was re-elected District President during the meeting as well. The district meeting also included a briefing by AIC Staff on recent changes in state laws that affect county government.

The Association of Indiana Counties, Inc. is a non-profit organization established in 1957 for the betterment of county government.
