Every year at the first meeting in January, the Sutter County Board of Supervisors rotates the duties of Board Chair. On Tuesday night, the Board of Supervisors elected Second District Supervisor Dan Flores to chair meetings and represent the Board at community functions for 2018.
At the same meeting, the Board elected Fifth District Supervisor Mat Conant Vice Chair.
Outgoing Board Chairman Jim Whiteaker surprised Supervisor Flores by presenting him with a lightsaber in a presentation he made over the theme of Star Wars.
“Long, long ago, in a County far, far away…” Supervisor Whiteaker began.
Supervisor Flores is big Star Wars fan.
