District 1 County Supervisor Phil Serna, who represents Natomas, was sworn in as the newest member of the California Air Resources Board on Feb. 20.
The appointment by Governor Brown last month was made possible by passage of Assembly Bill 146 (Dickinson) which added a seat to the state Air Resources Board from the Sacramento region. The Sacramento region includes the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District, Placer County Air Pollution Control District, Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District, Feather River Air Quality Management District, El Dorado County Air Pollution Control District.
“I’m humbled by the confidence Governor Brown has placed in me to represent the more than 2 million residents in our region,” said Serna. “I look forward to serving in this new capacity and welcome the opportunity to work collaboratively with our local air districts and my fellow colleagues on the Air Resources Board.”
Serna served on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors since 2010 and is chair of the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District. The state Air Resources Board position serves at the pleasure of the Governor and receives no compensation.
