It?s an interesting place to be; in the middle. Our victory in June is a major milestone. The election is finished but I don?t take office until January 8th; which puts me in the middle. As much as I am honored by the outpouring of requests for events, speaking engagements, and assistance, I am respectful that Jerry O?Banion is District 5 Supervisor. If you have an event, need assistance or information, until January 8th, contact Supervisor O?Banion directly by either email Dist5@co.merced.ca.us or by phone at (209) 385-7366. I know he would appreciate hearing from you.
To better serve you moving forward, we are currently updating our website and providing a number of ways for you to submit your requests as well as get up-to-date information. Communication is extremely important and that is why we will continue to provide you email updates, information on our website and social media posts. Once I take office, I will be happy to meet with you and my phone is on.
Over the last month, I have met with our County C.E.O., James Brown as well as a number of department heads. These informal meetings have been extremely helpful, and I will continue to meet with various county services and stakeholders so that I am fully briefed.
