Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter Continues in Leadership Role at RCRC in 2024


SACRAMENTO, CA – On Wednesday, January 17, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter was elevated into the role of Immediate Past Chair and will continue serving in the leadership of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC). Supervisor Teeter took the Oath of Office as administered by State Senator John Laird as part of the 2024 Officers of RCRC.

Supervisor Teeter joins Monterey County Supervisor Chris Lopez (who will serve as Chair), Modoc County Supervisor Geri Byrne (who will serve as First Vice Chair), and Mariposa County Supervisor Miles Menetrey (who will serve as Second Vice Chair). These newly installed 2024 Officers will lead the organization in championing public policies on behalf of California’s rural counties.

“It has been a pleasure serving as RCRC’s Board Chair in 2023, working alongside my colleagues to advance important initiatives such as wildfire prevention, property insurance, and broadband access,” said Supervisor Teeter. “There's a great deal of work still to be done and I am honored to continue in a leadership role at RCRC as we champion policies for the benefit of our rural communities.”

RCRC is led primarily by four officers comprised of elected rural county supervisors from the organization’s 40-member counties. Butte County has been a member of RCRC since 1976. Once being elected Second Vice Chair, it has been the custom for that person to move-up the ranks and ultimately lead the organization. As such, Supervisor Teeter, who served as Chair last year, is to now serve as Immediate Past Chair at RCRC in 2024.



The Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) is a forty-member county strong service organization that champions policies on behalf of California’s rural counties. RCRC is dedicated to representing the collective unique interests of its membership, providing legislative and regulatory representation at the State and Federal levels, and providing responsible services for its members to enhance and protect the quality of life in rural California counties.
