I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to serve our citizens alongside some of the most dedicated, caring, and collaborative people I’ve ever encountered. I look forward to starting in my new role. Thank you for your faith in me and your dedication and partnership in making Nevada County such a special place to live, love, and work".
