Welcoming people from all walks of life.

County Council

Welcome to the County Council Page


The Monroe County Council recognizes that for far too long, systemic racism in our society has brought grave harm to the lives of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color across our nation. It is particularly disturbing when hateful, violent, and racist acts occur within the borders of Monroe County as witnessed in recent weeks. The Monroe County Council believes vehemently that Black lives matter. We stand united in our condemnation of all acts of racism and white supremacy in our community and beyond. Most importantly, we – as elected leaders – are committed to becoming more anti-racist in our own actions and in the local government policies under the control of the County Council as we strive to continuously improve the quality of life for the people of Monroe County.
