NACo's Large Urban County Caucus elected leaders not only play a significant role in national policy because they represent nearly one in every two Americans, but also because of the broad range of services they must provide to their citizens. Therefore, LUCC's goal is to provide useful information to its 1,000 elected members as they search for pragmatic solutions to the challenges facing the nation's 100 largest urban counties.
