Sonora, CA — Assistant County Administrator Craig Pedro will take over for retiring County Administrator C. Brent Wallace.
The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to accept a three year contract that would pay Pedro approximately $110,000 a year.
The 46 year old Fresno State University graduate has spent more than 20 years in Tuolumne County government.
Supervisor Paolo Maffei says he has worked with Pedro for some time and recognizes his knowledge, diligence, and grasp of the issues.
Maffei says it would be difficult to find someone more qualified outside of the county.
Pedro believes his familiarity with the county and staff will help him during his transition.
He says his first priority will be to see the transition of Tuolumne General Hospital through to a good conclusion.
