Inyo County Supervisor Elected to Leadership Role at RCRC in 2023
SACRAMENTO, CA – On Wednesday, January 18, Inyo County Supervisor Matt Kingsley was appointed to the role of Executive Committee Member At-Large of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC). Supervisor Kingsley took the Oath of Office as administered by California State Senator James Gallagher as part of the 2023 Officers of RCRC.
Supervisor Kingsley joins Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter (who will serve as Chair), Monterey County Supervisor Chris Lopez (who will serve as First Vice Chair), and Modoc County Supervisor Geri Byrne (who will serve as Second Vice Chair). These newly installed 2023 Officers will lead the organization in championing public policies on behalf of California’s rural counties.
“There is much work to be done in support of our counties, communities, and constituents, living in rural California,” said supervisor Kingsley. “I look forward to once again serving in a leadership role with RCRC, and collaborating with my fellow board members, lawmakers, and staff to amplify the voice of rural counties in California.”
RCRC is led primarily by four officers comprised of elected rural county supervisors from the organization’s forty member counties. Inyo County has been a member of RCRC since 1976. Due to retirements of both the current RCRC Chair (Supervisor Miller) and Current Immediate Past Chair (Supervisor Corless), the Immediate Past Chair position will become vacant for 2023. As a result, Supervisor Matt Kingsley (Inyo County) was elected to the 2023 RCRC Executive Committee Member At-Large position.
