POPE COUNTY - At a District 4 meeting of the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) earlier this month, Pope County Commissioner Larry Lindor of Nora Township was elected by the delegates as the District Chairman.
Lindor will preside over District meetings at least twice a year and will meet on a monthly basis with the other 20 County Commissioners elected by their respective districts throughout the state. The District Directors as a Board help to forge opinions on proposed legislative actions at both the state and federal levels.
The AMC Board of Directors provides direction to the AMC staff members who perform a variety of educational, information-sharing and lobbying roles on behalf of the 87 counties.
Commissioner Lindor is in his fourth year of service as the 4th District Commissioner, representing the Townships of Nora, Ben Wade, New Prairie, Waldon, Blue Mounds, Barsness, Hoff, Langhei, and Rolling Forks as well as the city of Cyrus and the city of Lowry. He has been active in AMC policy committee work at the state level and continues to serve local appointments to the various agencies affiliated with Pope County.
Lindor currently serves as one of two county representatives to the Pope-Douglas Solid Waste Board; he is an active member of the Board's Personnel Committee, serves on the County Planning Commission, is one of two delegates to the Minnesota Rural Counties Caucus, and sits on the Viking Regional Library Board.
AMC District 4 encompasses the counties of Pope, Clay, Becker, Wilkin, Otter Tail, Todd, Douglas, Stevens, Grant, Traverse, and Wadena. AMC is one of the principle associations at the state level who protect the interests of local government.
