County Board of Supervisors reorganizes

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Jan. 6 to appoint two members from North County into leadership positions, with first-term Supervisor Dave Roberts earning the vice chairman’s seat and veteran Supervisor Bill Horn named as chairman for 2015.

“I look forward to continued collaboration with my colleagues to build upon our success throughout the county,” Roberts said. “This board has great chemistry.”

Roberts, a former mayor and city council member from Solana Beach, has spent two years advancing mental health reforms to increase access to services and has initiated policies to improve the environment. He has streamlined adoptions of foster children and has opened doors to create jobs, build the economy and modernize county business practices.

“I can’t wait to get to work,” Roberts said after the meeting. “Working as a team, the Board of Supervisors is going to make this a great 2015.”
