At the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors’ meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 11 in Stockton, Robert Rickman was elected Vice Chair.
In the Chair’s absence or in case of the Chair’s inability to act, the Vice Chair serves as the presiding officer to maintain order and decorum, decide questions of procedure, and conduct the meeting as prescribed by Board rules and the laws of the State of California.
Supervisor Rickman is not unfamiliar with running official meetings, as he has presided over meetings as Mayor of Tracy and as Chair of numerous boards and commissions, he has served on.
Following the recent decennial federal census and in accordance with California Elections Code §21500, the Board used the 2020 census data and a public process to adjust the boundaries of the supervisorial districts so that they would be nearly equal in population. The new boundaries of the Fifth District, adopted Dec. 7, 2021, include the communities of Escalon, Mountain House, Ripon, Tracy, and associated unincorporated areas.
Supervisor Rickman said, “I want to thank my colleagues for their trust and confidence. I look forward to working with our county residents as well as my fellow Board Members to tackle the challenges that remain before us in 2022.”
