Congressman John Garamendi Installs RCRC’s 2021 Officers
SACRAMENTO, CA – January 15, 2021 – On January 13th, Representative John Garamendi (D-Yolo County) administered the official Oath of Office to the 2021 Officers of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC). Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless was installed as Chair, and Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller was installed as 1st Vice Chair. In early December, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter was selected by his peers to serve as 2nd Vice Chair. Merced County Supervisor Daron McDaniel remains an Officer in the role of Immediate Past Chair. The newly installed 2021 Officers will lead the organization in championing policies on behalf of California’s rural counties.
“On behalf of the Officers of RCRC, I want to thank Congressman Garamendi for taking the time to administer the Oath of Office,” said Supervisor Corless. “Congressman Garamendi currently represents several RCRC-member counties in the House of Representatives and keenly understands the important role rural counties play in strengthening the State of California.”
Congressman Garamendi represents Colusa, Sutter, Yuba, and significant portions of Glenn, Lake and Yolo Counties (portions of Solano and Sacramento also make up the current 3rd Congressional District) in the U.S. House of Representatives. These counties are active members of RCRC and share many of the public policy concerns that other rural areas face, including water quality/availability, the need for hi-speed broadband and diminishing the threat of wildfires.
“The work of all of you as Supervisors is exceedingly important, trying to bring about economic growth, dealing now with COVID-19 and the changes that places on you. It’s not easy but necessary” said Congressman Garamendi. “RCRC is an extremely important organization providing a coalition of like-minded counties, their representatives and their supervisors to petition the Legislature and Governor to not forget the rural areas. Your task is important in providing that voice, that coalition of support around issues that are common whether you are in the most southern rural counties to the most northern rural counties.”
The official Oath of Office was conducted virtually during the RCRC Board of Directors meeting on the morning of January 13th.
