Judge/Executive Gary Moore's NACo Presidency Ends, Capping an Extraordinary Year of Service

At the 2021 National Association of Counties’ (NACo) annual conference in Prince George County, Maryland, Judge/Executive Gary Moore’s term as President concluded Monday night, July 12, 2021. Judge Moore’s term as President of NACo focused on expanding broadband accessibility, addressing infrastructure needs, preparing for a potential national opioid settlement, and increasing civic engagement all during the COVID-19 pandemic.                                                                                                                                                   

“While serving as NACo president this past year, I was able to elevate Boone County’s voice to the national scene under two different U.S. Presidents and their administrations.” Said Judge/Executive Gary Moore. 

During Judge Moore’s presidency, NACo membership increased to an all-time high of 2,486 counties representing 81 percent of all counties, parishes, and boroughs throughout the country. 

“We are very grateful for Judge Moore’s Leadership.” Said Jim Henderson, Executive Director of the Kentucky Association of Counties (KACo). “KACo and all our County Leaders could not have asked for a better person or more qualified leader to represent us on the national stage than that of Judge Gary Moore.” 

“I will use this experience and knowledge that I gained as President of NACo to continue to make Boone County the best it can be.” Said Judge/Executive Gary Moore. 

Judge Gary Moore was only the second Kentuckian ever to be NACo President.
