"It is an honor to serve on the CALAFCO Executive Committee as Treasurer of the Association.  I look forward to continuing to represent our County at the State level and work with neighboring counties to further impact legislation in order to improve local LAFCOs," said Frentzen.

"As the Executive Director of the Association, it has been my pleasure to work with Board Member Frentzen during the past four years and I look forward to continuing to move CALAFCO forward under her leadership as Treasurer. Her commitment and focus to the principles and values of LAFCo and CALAFCO are evident in her desire to dedicate the next four years on the Executive Committee, eventually leading the Association as Chair of the Board," said Pamela Miller.

"We all should be so proud of Ms. Frentzen for her election to the CALAFCO Board of Directors as Treasure and her representation of our El Dorado LAFCO," said Holly Morrison, El Dorado LAFCO Commissioner and Cameron Park Community Services District Board Member.
