Board of County Commissioners Chairman Jeff Gray said, “Taco is an excellent example of what a true public servant should be. He is devoted to the success of the county and the well- being of its residents. . We are happy to have him on our team and are excited about the county’s future under his leadership.”

In response Pope said, “This recognition reaffirms that we, as a collective community, are making tremendous strides forward. Ultimately, this is our home and it is what we make it.”
