Member Profile: Rodney J. Ross
Government and Community Relations Administrator
Navajo County

Where are you originally from?
Proud West Mesa native.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in local government?
I grew up in a very politically polarized atmosphere and always felt that government would be more effective if it did a better job of communicating with those it serves.

What do you like most about your job?
Learning more about county government and its relationship to cities, the state and federal government.

What areas of local government interest you the most?
Anything that has a direct impact on constituents.

As a local government professional, what accomplishment are you most proud of?
Broadly speaking, I feel that I've been able to use my communication skills to bring some understanding to situations polarized by confusion and misperceptions.

What was the last book you read?
"The Glorious Cause-The American Revolution 1763-1789". Not my favorite-David McCullough is better.
