Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller Continues in Leadership Role at RCRC in 2021
In early December, Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller was elevated by his peers to serve as First Vice Chair of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC). On January 13th, Supervisor Miller took the Oath of Office as administered by Representative John Garamendi (D-Yolo County) as part of the 2021 Officers of RCRC.
Supervisor Miller joins Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless (who will serve as Chair), Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter (who will serve as Second 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 excited to continue my role in helping to lead RCRC,” said Supervisor Miller. “As rural county elected leaders, there is so much work to be done. I look forward to working on several of RCRC’s top priorities this coming year that include addressing the constant threat of wildfires, advocating for rural broadband expansion, and working with RCRC affiliate organizations like the Golden State Natural Resources, Golden State Finance Authority and National Homebuyers Fund, Inc. The challenges that confront rural counties implores us to take action and take action now.”
RCRC is led primarily by four officers comprising of elected rural county supervisors who are members of the 37-member advocacy organization. Nevada County, along with all neighboring counties, are members of RCRC. Once being elected 2nd Vice Chair, it has been the custom and practice of that person to move up the ranks and ultimately lead the organization. As such, Supervisor Miller will Chair RCRC in 2022.
“We are all glad that 2020 has come and gone. Hopefully, 2021 can be the year we tackle the tough issues of wildfires, rural broadband deployment, and ensuring counties such as Nevada and our neighbors receive direct federal COVID-19 relief aid,” added Supervisor Miller. The official Oath of Office was conducted virtually during the RCRC Board of Directors meeting on the morning of January 13th .
