This leader prepares the budget, fosters partnerships with residents, business and community leaders, identifies strategic issues facing the county, and encourages cross-department and regional collaboration.
The Board of Supervisors, who will hire the next county executive in the coming months, also wants your input through an online survey by Jan. 16.
