Supervisor Slocum Appointed to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District

THANK YOU to my colleagues on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors for voting to appoint me to serve on an important regional body, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. The district was created in 1955 by the California Legislature and was the first regional air pollution control agency in the country.

The Air District is tasked with regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the nine counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Southwestern Solano and southern Sonoma counties. It is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors composed of locally elected officials from each of the nine Bay Area Counties, with the number of board members from each county being proportionate to its population.

The Board oversees policies and adopts regulations for the control of air pollution within the district. The Air District consists of over 340 dedicated staff members, including engineers, inspectors, planners, scientists and other professionals.

Here is a complete listing of all my commission and committee assignments.
