Eggleston honored with CCAP award

Commissioner Jeff Eggleston has been awarded the Outstanding County Commissioner of the Year Award by the County Commissioner’s Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP). The announcement was made at this week’s CCAP annual conference held in Adams County.

“The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania has bestowed honors upon several Pennsylvania county leaders and others who have enhanced the well-being of counties and residents,” CCAP said in a statement.

“Eggleston was acknowledged for his dedicated local service and Association participation which has contributed to the advancement of county government, including projects related to communications with townships and boroughs; the North/South Corridor Project with Chautauqua County, N.Y.; a recycling center that assists with inmate work release programs and human services advancements,” CCAP explained.

Warren County Commissioner Ben Kafferlin noted the award at Thursday’s commissioner’s meeting.

“This is pretty much the premier, top-shelf award the CCAP gives,” he said, thanking Eggleston for “his hard work.”

Eggleston immediately thanked county staff:

“If I’m a commissioner of any substance, it’s because of you and the work that you do so thank you very much.”
