SACRAMENTO – CSAC President Richard Forster has selected Sonoma County Supervisor David Rabbitt to serve on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Counties (NACo). California earned a third spot on the Board because all 58 counties are now members of NACo. Supervisor Rabbitt joins San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts (CSAC’s First Vice President) and Alameda County Supervisor Keith Carson as California’s NACo Board members.
“Supervisor Rabbitt is going to be a great asset on the NACo Board,” said President Forster, an Amador County Supervisor. “He’s already a noted expert on several issues counties are dealing with on the national level, including tribal relations and fee to trust, transportation funding, and environmental issues. I know he’s going to be a great representative for California.”
“I am honored to have been chosen to serve on this national Board,” said Supervisor Rabbitt. “Just as CSAC does important work on behalf of counties in the State Capitol, NACo does equally important work representing County interests with Congress and federal agencies in Washington DC. I’ve testified on behalf of California counties several times on some of the same issues that affect counties all over the country—so, I see this as another opportunity to make sure California’s points of view on these issues are being heard and understood.”
Supervisor Rabbitt will participate in his first NACo Board meeting when the organization holds its annual conference in Long Beach, Los Angeles County beginning July 22.
