Fairfax County Supervisor Gerry Hyland Appointed to Serve on National Committee
Fairfax County Supervisor Gerry Hyland was appointed to serve on the National Association of Counties Family Economic Success Advisory Committee. The recently formed committee will continue the work of NACo's Early Childhood Development Taskforce by promoting county activities for young children and their families.
The committee will work on strategies to support working parents by promoting job retention and advancement and providing information on the Earned Income Tax Credit.
The committee is being funded by a grant from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
"Supervisor Hyland has been a tireless advocate for working families and their children," NACo president Karen M. Miller said. "His continued work on this issue will be of great help to both these families and county officials all across the country."
First elected Mount Vernon District supervisor in 1987, Hyland is serving his fifth term on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. In addition to service on many board committees, Hyland has served on various regional, state and national boards and committees, including Virginia Rail Express, Northern Virginia Transportation Commission, Human Resources and Public Safety Committee, Commission on Population, Growth and Development, and Virginia Association of Counties.
Created in 1935, the National Association of Counties is a full service organization that provides legislative, research, technical and public affairs assistance to county governments.
