“I am grateful to have this talented and experienced group of local leaders who are willing to step up and serve their immediate communities and also the state at-large through their work with CSAC,” said CSAC Executive Director Matt Cate. “They are all dedicated and effective public servants in their own right. As a leadership group, their combined experience, acumen and credibility on important issues will resonate in the State Capitol and in Washington DC. This is going to be an amazing year of working on behalf of California’s 58 counties and 39 million residents we serve.”
“California counties provide the programs and services that impact people where they live, where they work and where they play,” said Supervisor Perez. “CSAC plays a critical role in ensuring counties have the resources to do what the state entrusts us to do, including providing public safety and access to health care. Top priorities next year will also include effectively regulating cannabis, protecting transportation funding and advocating for the resources and flexibility counties need to deliver the most cost-effective services to our communities. Serving as President of CSAC is an opportunity to impact these and other critical issues on behalf of all Californians.”
Supervisor Perez has previously served as the Association’s Second and First Vice President. Supervisor Perez has also served as President of the Latino Caucus of California Counties, co-chair of CSAC’s Poverty Working Group and on the National Association of Counties Opioid Epidemic Task Force.
