ST. PAUL - Murray County Commissioner Bob Moline has been re-elected to a second two-year term as director of the Association of Minnesota Counties’ (AMC) eighth district.
“I’ve always had an interest in running for district director ever since I was elected as a commissioner in Murray County,” Moline said. “I’m proud to have been reelected to this position.”
Moline is married with three children and 11 grandchildren. He has been a commissioner for 10½ years and before that was a township clerk for many years. He also spent six years serving in the National Guard.
The Molines run their farm with their youngest son and also have a crop insurance agency that they run out of their home. In addition to serving as AMC district director, Moline is also a member of the AMC Transportation Policy Committee.
As members of the association, Minnesota’s 87 counties belong to one of 10 AMC districts across the state. District meetings are conducted twice per year, during which county staff and elected officials gather together to refine association legislative policy positions and provide valuable information on specific county issues.
“I have always been an advocate of collaboration, and participating in AMC allows the commissioners in our area to work closely together to move southwestern Minnesota issues forward,” Moline said.
In addition to being the main contact for other AMC members in their district, district directors serve on the AMC Board of Directors.
“AMC is very important to southwestern Minnesota,” Moline said. “By serving on the board, I can bring our issues forward to legislature.”
AMC has been serving Minnesota’s 87 counties since 1909. AMC is a voluntary statewide organization that assists the state’s 87 counties in providing effective county governance to the people of Minnesota. The association works closely with the legislative and administrative branches of government in seeing that legislation and policies favorable to counties are enacted. In addition, the association provides educational programs, training, research and communications for county officials.
