Embattled Shasta County District Two Supervisor Leonard Moty has been chosen by his peers to be Chairman of the Board. Moty faces recall election on February 1st, for which ballots have already been mailed. Previous Chairman Joe Chimenti used the gavel much more than it’s ever been used over the past year in an effort to restore order and civility to the sometimes raucous chambers. The Vice Chair was Les Baugh, which would normally put him in line to be the next chair, but he announced last year that he would not be seeking reelection in June. Chimenti also has said he won’t run again. The new Vice Chair is Mary Rickert.
