Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett was installed as the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Annual Conference as the 2018 Second Vice President. She was unanimously supported by her colleagues on the CSAC Board of Directors (Board) at the General Assembly. Supervisor Bartlett is the first woman to represent Orange County as an officer on the CSAC Board of Directors. It has been 65 years since an Orange County Supervisor has served in an executive officer position when Supervisor Willard Smith served as CSAC President in 1951-52.
The California State Association of Counties represents California’s 58 counties at the state and federal level. Supervisor Bartlett has represented Orange County at CSAC for the past three years. In 2017, Supervisor Bartlett served on the Executive Committee and as Co-Vice Chair on CSAC’s Housing Land Use and Transportation Committee. A bipartisan coalition of county supervisors supported Supervisor Bartlett’s nomination at the CSAC Urban Caucus.
“I am honored to be unanimously supported by the CSAC Board,” said Supervisor Bartlett. “I look forward to continuing to advocate our local needs at the state level.”
A press release from Supervisor Bartlett’s office stated, “(Supervisor Bartlett) understands the importance of issues facing counties statewide, which range from homelessness, housing, transportation, public safety and health care.”
