Grundy County Trustee Tyler McCullough, has been selected by NACCTFO, National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers, to serve on the National Legislative Committee. This committee helps to follow the general state and national standards in treasury management, and provide public services that are needed for its citizens.
The board will be comprised of four members, representing all fifty states. McCullough was one of four members selected from across the nation for the Legislative Committee. The committee will assist and advise senators and congressmen on laws concerning the Trustees, Treasurers, Finance Officers, and Collectors. The Legislative Committee makes decisions to consider, recommend, and are expected to act upon all legislation that is necessary in order to benefit the local government.
McCullough stated, “This is such an honor to serve Grundy County and the state of Tennessee by being one of the four voting members of the Legislative Committee. Being selected to be a member of this committee will give Grundy County a voice in Washington, D.C.”
This is an excellent opportunity for the people of Grundy County as it gives them a voice in what would be best for the county.
