Jean Jordan, appointed last month to replace Ron Erickson as Sutter County Counsel, was sworn in on her first day on the job this morning by County Clerk Donna Johnston.

She was working as the Director of Operations for the California State Association of Counties when she accepted the position with Sutter County.

Sutter County Appoints Jean Jordan as its New County Counsel

The Sutter County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday appointed an attorney with management experience as its new County Counsel.

Jean Jordan, the Director of Operations and Member Services with the California State Association of Counties, was appointed to a four-year term by unanimous vote of the Board of Supervisors.

“Jean was an exceptional candidate with extensive knowledge of the law, experience with counties, and a strong management background,” said Board Chairman Ron Sullenger. “I think our job as Board members is to hire the people with the best possible management skills to lead the organization, and I am confident we have made the right choice with this appointment.”

For Ms. Jordan, who has worked as a public defender, deputy district attorney, and director of a sexual assault and domestic violence center, and as an adjunct professor at an Orange County law school, accepting the position in Sutter County is like coming home.

“My roots are in Sutter County,” she said. “My grandparents were farmers and settled in the Yuba City area many years ago. I spent much of my life in Sutter County visiting and staying with my family.

“I have enjoyed working at CSAC but this move allows me to get back to my first love—the law. The most important thing that my time at CSAC confirmed for me is that counties affect people’s lives on so many different levels, from public safety and law enforcement, to health and human services and public works. So while I am sad to be leaving CSAC, I am happy to remain in the county family and I am looking forward to working closely with the Board of Supervisors and the rest of the staff in Sutter County.”

Ms. Jordan has an extensive background in county government. Prior to coming to work at CSAC she served at Executive Director of Administrative Services for the California District Attorneys Association. She has also worked for Yolo County as both a Public Defender and a Deputy District Attorney, and she also worked as a Deputy District Attorney in the District Attorney’s Family Protection Units for Santa Cruz and San Diego Counties.

Ms. Jordan will finish her work at CSAC on February 28 and begin her service with Sutter County on March 2, 2015.

She steps into a position previously held by Ron Erickson, who retired after 32 years in the County Counsel’s Office, including the last 11 as the department head.
