Since Penny Rich joined Orange County Board of Commissioners in 2012, she has demonstrated an unparalleled leadership on behalf of her constituents. She brought with her the leadership experiences of her time on the Chapel Hill Town Council and the Orange County Water and Sewer Authority, so she was well prepared to hit the ground running for Orange County.
Not content to simply attend commissioners meetings, Commissioner Rich has immersed herself in boards and committees, including the Visitors Bureau where she is the finance chair stressing the importance of clean economic development. Commissioner Rich also chairs the Strategic Communications work group helping the county update its vision, underscoring the importance of inclusive two-way communications. She also serves regionally on the Triangle Council of Governments, and nationally on the Telecommunications and Technology board for the National Association of County Commissioners, based in Washington DC.
Commissioner Rich has earned our continued support.
