Monterey Supervisor Jane Parker to Retire
Monterey County Supervisor Jane Parker says she is not running for a fourth term and will instead retire in 2020.
After ten years on the Board, Parker knows what it takes and she already has a replacement in mind. She hopes voters will select her longtime aide and Monterey Peninsula Unified School District member Wendy Root Askew to fill her seat.
Parker reflected on her tenure in office with reporter Sara Rubin of the Monterey County Weekly.
"I and my team have really been able to make a difference in how Monterey County does business," Parker said. "I think it's a good time to step away and let the next generation bring their perspective and energy to the job.”
"My tagline in the last election was 'Protecting Monterey County for future generations,' and having a fresh but experienced person in the job is going to be good for constituents in District 4, and the county as whole."
