Brown appoints Caren Ray to succeed Teixeira
October 3, 2013
Governor Jerry Brown appointed Arroyo Grande Councilwoman Karen Ray to fill the vacant fourth district seat on the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors, sources told CalCoastNews Thursday.
Ray will succeed Paul Teixeira, who died of a heart attack in June, and will serve the remaining 15 months of his term.
Teixeira’s term concludes in January 2015. Ray must win election to keep the position. A primary election for the fourth district seat is scheduled for June 2014.
Ray is expected to join Supervisors Bruce Gibson and Adam Hill to reestablish a liberal-leaning majority on the Board of Supervisors. Hill and Ray were spotted meeting in July while Hill was supposed to be attending an Air Pollution Control District meeting.
