Colorado Counties Inc. (CCI) named Douglas County Commissioner Roger Partridge as the 2020 CCI Distinguished Service Award recipient. An honor given to a Colorado county commissioner universally recognized for unselfish service and who often sets the standard by which all Colorado county commissioners can measure their accomplishments and commitment.
Nominated and chosen by his peers, Commissioner Partridge received the Distinguished Service Award as one who “regularly and unselfishly devotes time and energy to the ‘greater good’ whether that is in the Commissioner’s county, region or throughout the state,” according to CCI award criteria. In determining the recipient of this award each year, the CCI Awards Committee evaluates length of service as a commissioner and the individual Commissioner’s contributions to CCI over time.
“It is an honor to be recognized by such a phenomenal group of peers who are always supportive of one another and working tirelessly to build bridges,” said Commissioner Partridge. “This honor is really shared by all of the CCI representatives who are doing so much for their counties, especially during this year of such great challenges,” continued Partridge
“Commissioner Partridge’s commitment to CCI over the last eight years will be greatly missed. His willingness to go the extra mile and bring a united voice to all of the committees he served on and the CCI Board was truly impactful,” said John Swartout, executive director of CCI.
