Wise County Judge J.D. Clark was appointed the vice president of the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) Friday.

Clark has served on the executive board of NCTCOG since 2015, serving as secretary-treasurer last year.

Clark said he won’t have many new duties, but now he won’t have to take meeting minutes.

“It will nice to engage in conversations more in this role,” he said.

NCTCOG serves communities in 16 counties around North Texas and the Metroplex, representing a population of roughly 7 million. They provide funds for everything for emergency services to transportation, and as a council they discuss the best way to plan for population growth in North Texas.

Wise County is one of NCTCOG’s smaller members, with many of the board members coming from the Metroplex area.

The 2018 president, Kevin Strength, is mayor of Waxahachie, and the new secretary-treasurer is Ray Smith, the mayor of Prosper.

“The officers are all from areas that are anticipating growth in the next couple of years,” Clark said. “That’s a good perspective for us to have. I think it will be a good position for Wise County to be in.”

NCTCOG rotates officers through all three positions, so Clark is expected to become president next summer.
