Mendocino Hires New Cannabis Manager

Megan Dukett, who most recently served as the program administrator for Mendocino County’s consolidated parks, library, and museum department, has been hired as the county’s interim cannabis manager.

Duckett will be the third person to oversee the county’s cannabis permitting process in three years. Sean Connell resigned from the permanent position after less than 10 months in 2019. His predecessor Kelly Overton held the job for just four months. This was not an advertised position, according to the Mendocino Voice

Dukett previously worked for the county’s cultural services agency. Before that, she was the Education and Interpretive Program Director at Mission San Juan Capistrano.
