Planning panel vacancy filled
Angel Diaz has been named to the Sutter County Planning Commission.
Sutter County Supervisor Jim Whiteaker said he would name Diaz, a Yuba City resident, to the commission to represent District 4. Diaz will replace Tejinder Dosanjh, who has resigned from the commission.
In doing so, Whiteaker said he acknowledges he and Diaz may not always agree on a topic, but he believes Diaz can communicate well and serve with honor and integrity.
"He is a dedicated community member who is outspoken, but respectful and professional and brings years of outstanding experiences to this role," Whiteaker said in a press release.
Diaz is a member of the county's housing foundation board. His appointment will be effective on Nov. 1.
