Following is a news release from the Rural County Representatives of California, which is chaired by First District Supervisor Rex Bohn:
Nearly 50 locally elected officials, county leaders and staff will descend upon Humboldt County later this month as the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) hosts its April Board of Directors meeting in Ferndale. Humboldt County Supervisor Rex Bohn serves as the 2018 Chair of the 35-member county strong organization.
The two-day event commences Wednesday April 26th with a tour of the county and a couple local businesses, followed by dinner at the Ivanhoe Restaurant and Saloon. The event will conclude with the RCRC Board of Directors meeting at Ferndale City Hall on Thursday April 26th at 8:30 a.m.
“My role as Chair of RCRC often takes me to Sacramento and Washington, D.C. to advocate for California’s rural counties,” said Supervisor Bohn. “This event allows me to share beautiful Humboldt County with my rural colleagues, and showcase the progress we’re making on a number of fronts.”
“RCRC’s event will provide a substantial mid-week economic boost to Ferndale,” said Paul Beatie, President of the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce. “Ferndale’s unique businesses are excited to welcome RCRC to town, and have been working for the past month to roll out the red carpet!”
