CSAC Elects New President, Officers at Annual Ceremony

Humboldt County Supervisor Virginia Bass is the new President of the California State Association of Counties (CSAC). Bass was installed at the association’s annual meeting in San Diego last week. Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett was elected First Vice President, Supervisor James Gore of Sonoma County was elected as Second Vice President, and Kern County Supervisor Leticia Perez has been named CSAC’s Immediate Past President.

“California’s counties are as diverse as the many programs and services they provide,” Supervisor Bass said. “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.”

CSAC Executive Director Graham Knaus called Bass an insightful, experienced public servant with the ability to forge important connections between California’s 58 counties. She most recently served as CSAC’s Second and First Vice President.

CSAC has represented the interests of California county governments before the state and federal government for more than a century.
