Los Alamos County Clerk Sharon completed her term as president of the New Mexico Association of Counties last week at the association’s annual conference held in Lea County.
Stover was praised for logging over 10,000 miles and meeting with every county commission in NM during her year as president, she said in a release Thursday.
In a letter to NMAC members, Stover credited past boards, members and staff for setting a positive and engaging direction for the organization. Stover also thanked the dedication and commitment of current members for their work to improve their home counties.
“It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve as President this year,” Stover said. “The experience of traveling over 10,000 miles with our Executive Director, Steve Kopelman, to meet and visit with commissions in each county was invaluable. We shared the good work of NMAC and the many services offered. Most important, we heard first-hand the issues counties are facing and seeing the diversity across our state.
NMAC Executive Director Kopelman praised Stover’s tenure as President during a speech to NMAC members at the conference, and he called her, “the best President I have worked with in my life, bar none.”
