Lake County Supervisor Resigns

Lake County District 4 Supervisor Tina Scott has announced her resignation from the board, effective July 31. Lake County News reports that Scott, an avid baker, has accepted a job as a food and hospitality teacher at Clear Lake High School this fall.

Scott was first elected in 2016 and re-elected in 2020. She is halfway through a four-year term. She will be the first supervisor in 43 years to step down before her term has ended.

The board will discuss how to move forward with the vacancy at its meeting on April 26. Responsibility falls on the governor, but the county could also hold an election.

Lake County is already dealing with the coming departure of County Administrative Officer Carol Huchingson, whose last day is April 26.
