San Mateo County District 2 Supervisor Carole Groom was selected as the Board’s 2019 president on Tuesday, according to the county.

The selection occurred during the Board’s annual reorganization ceremony during which Groom and District Three Supervisor Don Horsley were sworn in for their new terms. Supervisor Warren Slocum was named the Board’s vice president for 2019.

Groom has served on the Board since December 2008 and has twice before served as president in 2011 and 2015.

“We have big goals for 2019 and with the leadership of County Manager Mike Callagy and our more than 5,000 talented employees we will work to accomplish those goals,” Groom said.

Outgoing Board President Dave Pine called it a “privilege and a pleasure” to have served twice as president since joining the Board in May 2011.
