Renville County Commissioner Bob Fox received the Association of Minnesota Counties’ (AMC) 2022 ‘Outstanding Service Award’ for exhibiting excellence, innovation, and dedication to his work in county government. 2022 AMC President and Lac qui Parle County Commissioner Todd Patzer presented the County Achievement awards at the association’s annual conference December 6 in Bloomington. The recipients were nominated by their counties and selected by a committee of county officials.
Commissioner Fox, with the support of his wife Karen, is completing his twentieth year of service on the Renville County Board, with a tenure that has included extensive leadership at the local, regional, state, and national levels. He leads by example and is always thinking strategically about the future, with his constituents and staff always at the forefront of his mind. An ardent supporter of, and longtime leader within both AMC and the National Association of Counties (NACo), Commissioner Fox actively promotes counties working together for the benefit of us all. Fox chaired the NACo Agriculture Committee and served on the NACo Board and the NACo Rural Action Caucus and is a longtime member of the AMC Board. He has testified before the US Congress and the Minnesota Legislature on behalf of all counties.
After serving the citizens of Renville County since 2003, Commissioner Fox announced his retirement this past fall. His last official board meeting will be December 27, 2022.
