San Rafael, CA – Dennis Rodoni, who is starting his eighth year representing constituents living in Marin County Supervisorial District 4, was voted by his peers to assume the title of Board President for 2024 during the January 9 session. This is his second time serving as Board President, having first held the title in 2021.

At the first Board meeting of the new year, Rodoni accepted the gavel from District 3 Supervisor Stephanie Moulton-Peters following her first term as Board President. Also, during the annual Board reorganization vote, Mary Sackett of District 1 was voted First Vice President and Eric Lucan of District 5 was named Second Vice President.

Rodoni, an Olema resident and fourth-generation West Marin native, represents those living in the county’s largest district by geographic size; each Supervisor represents a similar portion of Marin’s total population (between 48,000 and 53,000 residents). Rodoni said 2024 will be oriented toward the top community priorities reaffirmed at a Board workshop in November: affordable housing / addressing homelessness, race equity measures, climate change and sea level rise adaptations, disaster preparedness, County infrastructure, and County employee recruitment and retention.

In 2024, Rodoni said he’d like for the County to:

  • boost economic stability, fairness in income, and regional worker welfare via a minimum wage ordinance;
  • implement measures that improve accessibility, streamline efficiency, encourage collaboration, and ensure transparency in Supervisors meetings;
  • tackle urgent ecological issues, reduce environmental harm, and promote sustainable methods for a healthier tomorrow; and
  • enhance emergency response, boost community safety, and safeguard lives and property by finalizing plans for a new fire station in San Geronimo Valley.

“I’m approaching this year with high hopes for these goals and others,” Rodoni said. “Thanks to the County’s dedicated team of public servants, we have a strong track record of responsiveness to our community to deliver critical services while acting as responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars. As President, I look forward to working collaboratively with my fellow Supervisors and County staff to seek ways to continue to face challenges and meet the needs of Marin County residents.”

Moulton-Peters, a Mill Valley resident, reflected on the County’s accomplishments during her 2023 Board presidency and said her personal highlights included:

  • the approval of the County’s Housing Element update for new housing, the ongoing allocation of funds for affordable housing, and assistance to the homeless population;
  • initiation of the Office of Equity’s Participatory Budgeting process and other equity initiatives;
  • the County’s contribution to the Golden Gate Village Resident Empowerment Fund to predevelopment work for the renovation of Golden Gate Village, recently awarded to Bridge Housing;
  • continued work on mental health and substance abuse, particularly for youth, through $13 million in state grants; and
  • continued progress on countywide flood and wildfire prevention efforts.

“It was another busy and productive year for the Board of Supervisors and the County staff,” Moulton-Peters said. “It was a joy to welcome Supervisors Sackett and Lucan to the Board with their energy and new ideas.”

Katie Rice, a Mill Valley native and a San Anselmo resident, officially started her final year representing District 2. She announced in May 2023 that she would not run for reelection. Her successor will be initially considered by voters at the March 2024 Primary Election and appointed in January 2025.

As Board President, Rodoni will run the Board’s meetings, work with County staff to set meeting agendas, and speak for the Board after it has acted on policy matters or other shared topics.

The Board meets twice monthly on Tuesday mornings in the Marin County Civic Center’s Board chamber in San Rafael. Since the pandemic, meetings have been conducted in person at the chamber and via videoconference to increase public engagement opportunities. Meeting start times are usually 9 a.m. but are subject to change. Occasionally agenda items are heard by the Board in the early afternoon and special workshops sometimes begin at 5 p.m.

All Board meetings are televised live on Comcast channel 27 in Marin County and streamed live on Videos of the meetings dating to 2005 are archived on the website as well.
