Douglas County Commissioner Tim Freeman has been re-elected for his fifth term as the president of the Association of O&C Counties.
The association unanimously re-elected its 2021 leaders at a virtual meeting Dec. 11.
“I am honored by my re-election and sincerely appreciate the continued support of the members of the AOCC, who trust me in leading this crucially important work,” Freeman said in a press release. “Together with my colleagues and the staff at AOCC, we will continue to work hard to secure solutions to manage our unique congressional designated lands.”
The association advocates for sustained yield management of federal timberlands in 18 western counties formerly owned by the Oregon & California Railroad. The lands were set aside in 1937 for sustainable harvests with revenues shared with the counties.
