I am excited to work side by side with these talented and experienced leaders as we move forward into the new year,” said CSAC Executive Director Graham Knaus. “Even with positive news about the state budget, we know that there are many challenges ahead for California’s counties. Working together in Sacramento and in Washington D.C., our 2019 officers will serve California’s 58 counties and nearly 40 million residents well.”
“California’s counties are as diverse as the many programs and services we provide,” said Supervisor Bass. “I am so grateful for the role that CSAC plays not only in advocacy, but in bringing counties together to share expertise that better enables us to serve our communities. I look forward to an exciting and productive year working on behalf of all of California’s counties.”
