I am writing to publicly thank San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Bruce Gibson for his service on the California State Association of Counties’ Government Finance and Operations Policy Committee. He chaired the committee for five years, and served as vice chair for two. CSAC Policy Committees play a leading role in developing legislative policy that shapes the association’s direction and priorities.
Supervisors already have very full schedules and any additional claim on their time can be challenging. So when someone of Gibson’s considerable intellect and experience is willing to offer the benefit of his time and judgment, the value of that is incalculable. His service has helped the Legislature and other officials statewide understand the county perspective on some very important issues. Our association, our 58 member counties and the State of California are better for Gibson’s willingness to share his expertise.
