The Governor’s Office announced on Monday, October 6th, 2014, that it has named Colusa Resident, John Loudon to be appointed District Two Supervisor of Colusa County.
Loudon took oath into office just shortly after the announcement on Monday.
Loudon was appointed to fill the vacancy created when Tom Indrieri resigned midway through his third four-year term in July after relocating to the Rocklin area.
“Tom was a great asset to our board and our community,” said Vann, “those are very big shoes for anyone to fill.”
Loudon has served as the planning Commissioner for the District Two Supervisorial District since 2009.
“John has done an excellent job on the planning commission,” said Vann, “I look forward to working with him.”
Due to a conflict of interest, Loudon is expected to announce his resignation as the District Two, Planning Commissioner in the next several days.
“I have been anticipating the supervisor seat for quite some time,” said Loudon, “I intended to run in the last election; however, I went on to serve with the planning commission.”
Loudon commented that Indrieri talked him into serving on the planning commission to become acquainted with the county processes.”
As a longtime Colusa resident, Loudon is a retired sales manager at Norcal Restaurant Equipment. Loudon was the former owner of The Refuge from 1992-2000.
Loudon has an extensive background in account sales, management, and experience in computer systems. He worked a little over eight years with Apple Computers in 1984 as a regional education development executive.
Loudon is a member of the Colusa Golf and Country Club board.
“I am excited about getting involved, and I believe I have a lot to contribute,” said Loudon.
Loudon’s term will expire in 2017.
The Colusa County Board of Supervisors includes District One, Kim Dolbow Vann; District 3, Mark D. Marshall; District 4, Gary Evans; and District 5, Denise Carter. ■
