District 3 Supervisor Rick Farinelli of Madera was unanimously approved as the new chairman of the county’s Board of Supervisors last week, taking over for David Rogers of District 2 in Chowchilla, who led in 2015.
In a brief agenda item, the supervisors spoke about the successes for Madera County over the past year, including: an A-plus credit rating from Standard & Poors, the county’s national recognition as a leader in manufacturing job growth, and additional jobs in infrastructure county wide.
“These are exciting times to be in Madera County,” Farinelli said. “The hard work of our local governments to streamline and provide the best service possible to our residents and businesses is showing hard-earned divides. Madera County is truly the best place to live, work, and play.”
District 4 Supervisor Max Rodriguez was named Chairman Pro-Tem.
