The Fresno County Board of Supervisors has a new chairman for the New Year.
Nathan Magsig, supervisor for District 5, was named chairman for 2019, with District 4 Supervisor Buddy Mendes serving as vice chairman.
“I am honored to continue my service to Fresno County as Board Chairman,” Magsig stated. “I look forward to continued collaboration with County leaders and our communities in our shared efforts to help the County and our citizens thrive.”
The roles of chairman and vice Chairman are served in 12-month terms, rotating annually between supervisors. Sal Quintero previously held the chairman position, while Andreas Borgeas was vice chair.
In addition to the designations of chairman and vice chairman, several elected officials were sworn into office. Supervisor Buddy Mendes joined with fellow Supervisor Brian Pacheco and County Clerk/Registrar of Voters Brandi Orth in taking the oath of office for their respective positions. All three were re-elected in the June 5, 2018 midterms.
This is the second elected term for each. Supervisors Mendes and Pacheco were first elected to the board of supervisors in 2014. Orth was also first elected in 2014, but has served in the role of county clerk/registrar of voters since 2012 when she was appointed to fill the position vacated by her predecessor, Victor Salazar.
