SACRAMENTO, CA – March 11, 2022- The Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) has added Solano County to its membership, bringing the total number of RCRC member counties to thirty-nine. The RCRC Board of Directors approved the addition at their March 9, 2022 meeting. Supervisor Mitch Mashburn will serve as the Delegate and Supervisor John Vasquez as the Alternate on the RCRC Board of Directors representing Solano County.
“We are excited to welcome Solano County into RCRC membership to assist in our efforts to improve the quality of life for rural Californians,” said RCRC Board Chair and Nevada County Supervisor Dan Miller. “With the addition of Solano County, the collective voice of rural California is further strengthened, and we look forward to working together for the benefit of our communities.”
“RCRC represents the counties where our food is grown, where our water flows and where fires have the greatest impact - some of California’s most pressing issues,” said Supervisor Mashburn. Working together, we can improve our influence in Sacramento and our ability to educate and influence our urban friends and neighbors. Solano County is honored to become the newest member of the RCRC family, and I’m humbled to join my colleague John Vasquez in joining its ranks.”
Founded in 1972, RCRC works with its membership to advocate on behalf of rural issues at the state and federal levels. RCRC provides the rural county perspective on a myriad of issues during the legislative and regulatory process, including land use, water and natural resources, housing, transportation, wildfire prevention and forest resiliency policies, and health and human services. The core of RCRC’s mission is to improve the ability of small, rural California county government to provide services by reducing the burden of state and federal mandates, and promoting a greater understanding among policy makers about the unique challenges that face California’s small population counties.
