The 2019 Installation of Officers and Board of Directors Meeting at the RCRC office in Sacramento

@ca_ruralcounties

Tonight, we are proud to honor Mary Pitto, RCRC’s Regulatory Advocate, who is retiring at the end of the year after nearly 35 years of public service and local government advocacy.  Mary joined RCRC in 2002, and over the years has assisted rural counties with a variety of regulatory issues, enabling local governments to provide much-needed services and programs to rural county residents.  RCRC celebrates Mary tonight, acknowledging her tremendous contributions and dedication to California’s rural counties.
