Earlier this month, RCRC recognized Mary Pitto, RCRC Regulatory Affairs Advocate, for her years of dedicated service to California’s rural counties.  Ms. Pitto will be retiring from RCRC at the end of the year, capping off a 16-year career with the organization. 

“I could go on and on about the great work Mary has done on behalf of California’s rural counties over the years,” said Greg Norton, RCRC President and CEO.  “However, her kindness and generosity of spirit are what we’re going to miss most around the office.  We wish her health and happiness as she transitions into retirement…”

In addition to her regulatory portfolio on behalf of RCRC, Ms. Pitto served as Program Manager for the Rural Counties’ Environmental Services Joint Powers Authority (ESJPA) for more than 15 years. 

In addition to RCRC and the ESJPA, Ms. Pitto received resolutions and recognition from Assembly Member Frank Bigelow (R–O’Neals), the California Department of Conservation, and the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.  Ms. Pitto can be reached at mpitto@rcrcnet.org through December 28, 2019.
