Legislative Program

The Legislative Program Committee ("Committee") was established in September 1991, by the Board of Supervisors. The Committee considers and makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on State and Federal legislation.

The Committee is comprised of five members. Two are members of the Board of Supervisors, and are appointed annually by the Board Chair. The remaining three members are the County Executive Officer, County Counsel, and Auditor-Controller.

Membership of the Committee is as follows:

  • Joan Hartmann - Third District Supervisor
  • Das Williams- First District Supervisor
  • Mona Miyasato - County Executive Officer
  • Michael Ghizzoni - County Counsel
  • Betsy Schaffer - Auditor - Controller

The County Executive Office and County Counsel provides staff support to the Committee.
