Lavagnino to Join County Legislative Committee
Supervisor Steve Lavagnino is poised to join the county’s Legislative Committee after expressing interest last week but receiving no love from his colleagues. Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who is running for Congress, offered Lavagnino his spot. The Legislative Committee, which is made up of three board members, reviews federal and state measures, addressing an array of topics such as immigration and health services. Last year, the committee brought a number of particularly controversial issues, including vaccines and the right-to-die bill. “Even though I appreciate being on the committee … I understand politically we have a divided board,” Lavagnino said. Supervisors approved this year’s legislative platform; Peter Adam abstained.
