Madera County CAO Steps Down

Madera County’s chief administrative officer, Eric Fleming, resigned on Friday, Dec. 13 during a meeting of the County Board of Supervisors. His resignation was accepted by the Board, effective immediately.

“The Board would like to thank Eric for his ten years of service as Madera County’s CAO, and wishes him well in his future endeavors,” the county said in a statement.

“Deputy CAO Darin McCandless will immediately assume the role of Acting CAO, and the Board will consider appointment of an Interim CAO at its regular meeting on December 17, 2019. The Board will also begin the process of searching for and selecting a new CAO.”

Fleming was arrested in July for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
