Darnell to serve on the Transportation Steering Committee of the National Association of Counties. In this role, Commissioner Darnell will help develop NaCo policy and assist with achieving those policy goals. Commissioner Darnell will serve as a liaison for NaCo with the Georgia Congressional delegation ensuring that needs of local governments are advocated on the federal and national level.
