At the beginning of every calendar year, the Board of Supervisors updates and adopts its Legislative Priorities. These priorities are provided to the County's two legislative advocacy firms, which advocate on the County's behalf at the State and Federal levels. The County does not maintain any lobbyist staff positions; but elected officials and department heads often assist the Board in requesting, supporting or opposing legislation based on these priorities.
