“I am honored to serve as the 2021 Chair of the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors,” said Frost. “2020 was a most challenging year, and I’m confident that the Board’s work this year will tackle important issues that are meaningful to the residents of Sacramento County.”
The Board of Supervisors showed their appreciation for the previous 2020 Board Chair, Supervisor Phil Serna, by contributing funds in his name to the Washington Neighborhood Center, Inc.
