Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless Continues in Leadership Role at RCRC in 2022
SACRAMENTO, CA – January 13, 2022 – On Wednesday, Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless 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 Corless took the Oath of Office as administered by California State Senator Brian Dahle as part of the 2022 Officers of RCRC.
Supervisor Corless joins Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller (who will serve as Chair), Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter (who will serve as First Vice Chair), and Monterey County Supervisor Chris Lopez (who will serve as Second Vice Chair). These newly installed 2022 Officers will lead the organization in championing public policies on behalf of California’s rural counties.
“I am proud of the major successes that RCRC saw in 2021 with broadband access and wildfire prevention,” said Supervisor Corless. “There is still much work to be done and I am excited about continuing to serve in a leadership role at RCRC as we champion policies for our rural communities.”
RCRC is led primarily by four officers comprised of elected rural county supervisors from the organization’s 38-member counties. Mono 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 Corless, who served as chair last year, is to now serve as Immediate Past Chair at RCRC in 2022.
“The strength of RCRC comes from the collective impact of our member counties across the state.” added Supervisor Corless. “For 2022, wildfire and forest resilience remains my top priority and I look forward to working with RCRC board colleagues and staff to keep pushing for solutions to this complex, difficult and urgent issue that impacts all Californians.”
The official Oath of Office was conducted during the RCRC Board of Directors meeting held virtually on the morning of January 12th.
