Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) Chair and Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless hosted the June 2021 RCRC Board of Directors meeting in Mono County last week. The three-day event included the RCRC Board of Directors meeting in Mammoth Lakes, and a tour of the area that focused on natural resource issues.
“It was an honor to welcome elected Supervisors from across California and to showcase local research and on-the-ground projects that will benefit all of the state,” explained Supervisor Corless. “You could feel the excitement as we safely navigated our first in-person meeting and event since March of 2020. I am especially grateful to our esteemed guest speakers, California Natural Resources Secretary Wade Crowfoot, and California’s Chief Service Officer Josh Fryday, for their participation in productive discussions around the major issues impacting rural California, including water and wildfire.”
The RCRC Board of Directors meeting included a presentation by guest speakers Crowfoot and Fryday, as well as updates on state and federal legislation and an interactive session for strategic plan development. The agenda can be accessed here. Supervisors also attended a separate meeting of the Golden State Finance Authority (GSFA), an affiliated agency of RCRC, where they received an overview of GSFA’s housing assistance programs and an update on efforts to expand broadband access.
As is an organizational tradition, the RCRC Chair hosts a Board of Directors meeting in their county during their tenure. The June RCRC Board of Directors meeting brought over 30 elected Supervisors and county leaders to Mono County.
