Supervisors Might Replace Board Chair Tuesday
Tuolumne County Supervisors could vote Tuesday to remove District 3 supervisor Laurie Sylwester from her seat as board chairwoman.
The on-going rift within the five supervisors has been caused by Sylwester´s refusal to reappoint the former Tuolumne County planning commissioner Susan Duck and her weekly efforts to fill the planning commission vacancy with a local contractor.
Supervisor Don Ratzlaff requested the item to pull Sylwester from her position be placed on Tuesday´s board agenda.
A majority vote by the supervisors Tuesday would remove Sylwester and make supervisor Mark Thorton the new chair.
The board meeting begins at 9 a.m. in the supervisors chambers on Green Street in Sonora.
