The Homeland Security Task Force provides a forum for counties to focus on their roles and responsibilities as first responders.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to serve in this capacity," said Commissioner Mitchell. "It is extremely important that we explore all of these issues related to homeland security and human services here in Mecklenburg County and across the nation."
Mitchell, a Democrat representing District 2, is serving his third term on the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners.
