At the first meeting of 2010, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to select me as Chair of the Board and lead the County during what many expect to be a fiscally challenging year for the County of San Diego.
The board also unanimously voted Supervisor Bill Horn, District 5, as Vice Chairman and Supervisor Ron Roberts, District 4, as Chair Pro Tem.
My chairmanship succeeds Supervisor Dianne Jacob, District 2. Supervisor Jacob passed the torch to me in the best shape we could be in given the conditions between a state government in turmoil and declining local tax revenue.
I will disclose my policy agenda for the year at the State of the County Address at 6 p.m., February 10 at the Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall, 5775 Morehouse Drive, San Diego, CA 92121.
During my address, I will unveil some new initiatives in the areas of job development and public safety. I will also discuss the challenges for the year ahead and outline my goals for District 3 and the overall San Diego region.
