Lynda Salcido to Serve Again as Interim Mono County Administrator
Mono County, Calif. – On Tuesday, May 12th, the Mono County Board of Supervisors announced its selection of Lynda Salcido to serve as Interim County Administrator, effective when current County Administrator Jim Leddy leaves the post later this month. Leddy informed Mono County in April that he would be leaving his position for personal reasons and intended to relocate to his former home in Sonoma County. A long-term County employee, Ms. Salcido is also Mono County’s Director of Public Health/EMS, a position she has held for 15 years. Notably, she previously served as Interim County Administrator in 2013 after the departure of then-County Administrator James Arkens. As in 2013, Ms. Salcido will serve as Interim while the County recruits for a permanent County Administrator and until the individual ultimately hired as permanent County Administrator takes office. This process is estimated to take approximately four months.
Board of Supervisors Chairman Tim Fesko commented, “Lynda did an outstanding job previously as Interim County Administrator, and the Board greatly appreciates her willingness to serve the County again in that capacity.” Until she officially takes over as Interim County Administrator, Ms. Salcido will be meeting with Jim Leddy and other department heads in order to fully acquaint herself with pending issues and to ensure as smooth a transition as possible.
