Boes selected chairman of the board 

Colusa County Supervisor Kent Boes, of Williams, who represents District 3, was selected to serve his first term as Chairman of the Colusa County Board of Supervisors at their regular meeting on Jan. 8. 

Boes, who replaced District 4 Supervisor Gary Evans as chairman, was elected to the board in Nov. 6, 2016 Presidential Election, and served as vice-chair in 2018.

“I am humbled my colleagues’ confidence in me,” Boes said. “Supervisor Evans definitely left some big shoes for me to fill, but I am up to the challenge. I will do my absolute best, not just for District 3, but for Colusa County as a whole.”

Boes served on a number of boards and committees, including the Budget ad hoc Subcommittee, Animal Control Needs Assessment/Building Feasibility ad hoc Committee, Emergency Medical Care Committee, Transportation Commission and Transit Agency, Tri-County Rehabilitation Facility JPA, Community Action Partnership, Northern Central Counties Consortium, Treasury Oversight Committee, the Regional Housing Authority, among others.  

He is the board liaison to the Sheriff’s Office, Probation Department, District Attorney’s Office, Treasurer/Tax Collector, and Williams City Council. 

The Board of Supervisors will make their annual liaison appointments and committee assignments at their Jan. 22 regular meeting. 

District 2 Supervisor John Loudon was selected to serve as the 2019 vice-chair. 

Jan 8 was also District 1 Supervisor Merced Corona’s first meeting. Corona replaced Kim Dolbow-Vann, who was appointed State Director, USDA Rural Development, on Nov. 27, 2017. 

Denise Carter represents District 5. Evans represents Dist. 4. ■
