Cassia Count Clerk Receives Award

Cassia County Clerk Joe Larsen Received the Mills-Adler Award for Outstanding County Elected Official from the Idaho Association of Counties in Boise. Idaho Association of County Clerks and Recorders (IACRC) president, Sharee Sprague, presented the award to Larsen.

Recipients of this award are chosen by their peers. Larsen was elected Clerk of Cassia County in 2010, and is currently serving his third four-year term. Active in State and National County associations, he is past president of the IACRC.

With IAC, he has served as Legislative Committee Chairman, is a member of the Intergovernmental Affairs Committee, and is currently Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee. Additionally, he has served on the National Association of Counties Community Economic and Workforce Development Committee and is currently serving on the Telecommunications and Technology Committee.

He was instrumental in working with Idaho’s Junior College presidents and IAC in reforming processes and modifying statute for out-of-district county participation with junior college tuition obligations. As County Clerk, Larsen has pioneered the implementation of an updated accounting system, worked with the Supreme Court in migrating data and rolling out new court management software, and has led the way in Idaho in introducing more protected and secure state-of-the-art elections equipment for Cassia County.

Lifelong residents of Idaho, Larsen and his wife Jamie have three sons and three grandchildren. He is looking forward to seeking re-election in May of 2022.
