Job Description for County Commissioner

County commissioners work in local government and should have a strong desire to help the community, as they are responsible for administrating county governments in certain states. This is considered the oldest form of government, as not every state in the United States still has a county commission, but these commissioners serve both legislative and executive duties, approve budgets, and oversee the spending of county employees.
