Pitt County Celebrates National County Government Month

Leadership promotes the commitment to service through county programs


PITT COUNTY, N.C. – Pitt County celebrates National County Government Month (NCGM) to actively promote county roles and responsibilities in serving residents. 


The theme for this year’s celebration of NCGM is “Counties RISE!,” demonstrating how counties help to improve people’s lives every day.


Resiliency refers to our focus on the future and our determination to serve our communities even as they grow and change

Inclusion focuses on programming that ensures no one is left behind, especially those who have historically been underserved

Solvency means fostering economic mobility opportunities that help residents and communities prosper

Empowerment is a commitment to sharing resources, educating and informing one another

RISE! stands for Resiliency, Inclusion, Solvency and Empowerment - and the exclamation point speaks to the enthusiasm and passion with which we tell those stories. 


“We RISE! through many of our award-winning programs such as Public Health’s Diabetes Education and Support program, Animal Services MuttStrutters volunteer program and Soil and Water Conservation’s Streamflow Rehabilitation Assistance Program to name a few,” says Janis Gallagher, County Manager.  “We actively promote these and many other resources and services to County audiences through community outreach and multi-channel marketing campaigns.”


Pitt County launched a three-part educational campaign in January to Empower residents countywide to join the Litter Free For You and Me community movement to clean up roadways, neighborhoods and community recreation areas of litter.  The campaign, approved by the Pitt County Board of Commissioners, is in collaboration with various state and local agencies, municipalities and features a Litter Challenge with Pitt County Schools fourth graders. 


This year, Pitt County continued NACo’s I Love My County Because art contest in collaboration with Pitt County Schools. This gave an opportunity for children and young adults ages 18 and under to create artwork during NCGM for NACo’s annual “Counties Matter” calendar. The Board of Commissioners recognized the 2023 art winners at the March 20, 2023 meeting.  


The Mission of Pitt County Government is to enhance the health, safety, and well-being of our community by advocating for and providing quality services in a friendly and cost-effective manner. Learn more:
