Supervisor-elect Adam Hill announced several appointments to county bodies, following his earlier pick of Carlyn Christianson for the County Planning Commission. Christianson served six years on the city of San Luis Obispo’s Planning Commission. Hill chose Susan Devine, who served as his campaign manager, for his legislative aide.
“She’s very smart and resourceful,” Hill said.
“I feel very lucky that she came with me.”
Patricia Gomez, an attorney recently retired from the County Counsel’s office, will serve on the Civil Service Commission.
Bruce Hilton was appointed to the Trails Committee, and Tom Ikeda will remain on the Ag Liaison Committee. Ikeda was Jerry Lenthall’s pick.
Hill will replace Lenthall as 3rd District supervisor in January. Lenthall’s final meeting as supervisor will be Dec. 16, and Hill’s first will be Jan. 6, when he will be sworn in.
