Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter Continues in Leadership Role at RCRC in 2022
SACRAMENTO, CA – January 13, 2022 – On Wednesday, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter was elevated by his peers to serve as First Vice Chair of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC). Supervisor Teeter took the Oath of Office as administered by California State Senator Brian Dahle as part of the 2022 Officers of RCRC.
Supervisor Teeter joins Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller (who will serve as Chair), Monterey County Supervisor Chris Lopez (who will serve as Second Vice Chair), and Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless (who remains an Officer in the role of Immediate Past Chair). These newly installed 2022 Officers will lead the organization in championing public policies on behalf of California’s rural counties.
"I look forward to continuing my leadership role in RCRC and working with my fellow county supervisors to further the interests of rural Californians," said Supervisor Teeter. "This past year has continued to highlight the increasing threat of wildfires and drought throughout the state. RCRC is a driving force to help advance those priorities at the state and federal level."
RCRC’s Board of Directors is headed by four officers composed of elected County Supervisors from the organization’s 38 member counties. Butte County has been a member of RCRC since 1976. Once being elected Second Vice Chair, it has been the custom and practice of that person to move up the ranks and ultimately lead the organization. As such, Supervisor Teeter will Chair RCRC in 2023.
“As we move into the new year, RCRC will strategically tackle important issues for rural counties including wildfire prevention, water supply, and broadband access,” added Supervisor Teeter. “There is much work to be done!”
The official Oath of Office was administered by Senator Dahle during the virtual RCRC Board of Directors meeting on the morning of January 12th.
