County District 2 Supervisor Hank Kuiper was elected as the chairman of the board Tuesday night, replacing District 1 Supervisor Tony Tirado, whose term as chairman had expired.
Supervisor Joe Maruca, who represents District 3, was elected vice chairman, replacing Kuiper.
Both votes were unanimous, 4-0, with District 5 supervisor Wally Leimgruber absent.
"People ask why I do this. My three grandsons give me three good reasons for being involved," Kuiper said.
Kuiper said he wants to continue to build on what Tirado did as chairman of the board.
Tirado said he was honored to be the chairman this past year and is excited about the steps the board took toward economic development.
Earlier Tuesday, the board listened to public comments at a hearing to repeal the 1998 approval of the Felicity specific plan area.
