Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter To Help Lead RCRC in 2021
In early December, Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter was selected by his peers to serve as Second Vice Chair of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC). On January 13th, Supervisor Teeter took the Oath of Office as administered by Representative John Garamendi (DYolo County) as part of the 2021 Officers of RCRC.
Supervisor Teeter joins Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless (who will serve as Chair), Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller (who will serve as First Vice Chair) and Merced County Supervisor Daron McDaniel (who remains an Officer in the role of Immediate Past Chair). These newly installed 2021 Officers will lead the organization in championing public policies on behalf of California’s rural counties.
“I am humbled and honored to be selected by my fellow county supervisors from throughout rural California in helping lead RCRC over the next four years,” said Supervisor Teeter. “As rural county elected leaders, we have much work to do. One of RCRC’s top priorities is to address the issue of wildfires and the destruction they possess throughout the state and throughout the year.”
RCRC is led primarily by four officers comprising of elected rural county supervisors who are members of the advocacy organization. Butte County, along with all neighboring counties, are members of RCRC. Once being elected 2 nd Vice Chair, it has been the custom and practice of that person to move up the ranks and ultimately lead the 37-member organization. As such, Supervisor Teeter will Chair RCRC in 2023.
“In addition to tackling the issue of wildfires, RCRC will work on better broadband deployment, COVID-19 aid relief, and ensuring a plentiful and quality water supply,” added Supervisor Teeter.
The official Oath of Office was conducted virtually during the RCRC Board of Directors meeting on the morning of January 13th.
