Yesterday we heard from new Board of Supervisors Chair James Gore speaking at a Town Hall on fire recovery Saturday morning. Today, news director Steve Mencher brings us back to the meeting – where we’ll hear from Mark Ghilarducci, head of the California Office of Emergency Services.

Ghilarducci was the face of the state during the fire crisis, and earned high marks for his clear communication – and commitment. He took time off from marshaling forces in Southern California fighting to clear the mudslides there, to answer questions from fire survivors in our region.
