Riverside County Supervisor to Serve on Executive Committee of California State Association of Counties
SAN DIEGO – Riverside County Supervisor Chuck Washington will serve on the California State Association of Counties’ Executive Committee in 2019.
The statewide organization elected Washington, who currently is the chairman of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, at its 124th annual meeting in San Diego. Washington joined more than 800 county officials and others for the weeklong event last month.
The association represents and advocates for counties before the California Legislature, administrative agencies and the federal government. The Executive Committee establishes priorities and policies each year that directly impact the programs and services provided by the counties.
“I am honored and proud to represent Riverside County on this important decision-making committee,” said Washington, who served as an alternate on the committee for the past two years. “I look forward to advocating for Riverside County and other counties on key issues.”
Washington will serve as a member of the Executive Committee’s Urban Caucus, which also will be represented by Keith Carson from Alameda County, Carole Groom from San Mateo County, Kelly Long from Ventura County, Buddy Mendes of Fresno County, Mark Ridley-Thomas from Los Angeles County and Bob Elliott, who will serve as an alternate from San Joaquin County.
The Executive Committee is comprised of the CSAC’s officers, six urban county supervisors, three suburban county supervisors and two rural county supervisors. California has 58 counties, all represented on the 62-member CSAC board of directors.
