Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. on Thursday announced his appointment of Fifth District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg to the California Coastal Commission.
Established in 1972, the Coastal Commission works in partnership with coastal cities and counties to plan and regulate the use of land and water in the coastal zone. Sundberg will be one of the body’s 12 voting members, four of whom are appointed by the Governor. Six of the voting commissioners are locally elected officials, like Supervisor Sundberg, and six are appointed from the public.
Sundberg will serve as the North Coast Representative, which includes Humboldt, Del Norte and Mendocino counties. His term begins immediately.
“I am honored and humbled to take on this important role for California’s coastline,” Sundberg said. “I look forward to representing the three counties and finding ways to make the Commission more efficient.”
Sundberg began serving as the 5th District Supervisor in 2010. His district includes roughly 40 miles of coastline. Prior to 2010, he served as a member of the Trinidad Rancheria Tribal Council for 14 years while also working in the private sector. Some of his current roles include serving as chair of the Humboldt County Association of Governments, is a member of the Policy Review Committee for the North Coast Resource Partnership, and sits on the Tribal Advisory Committee for the California Association of Counties, among other responsibilities.
