RIVERSIDE (CNS) - The new chair of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors said Tuesday, Jan. 12 she will promote a ``culture of respect, value and innovation'' as its members contend with challenges in 2021, focusing on how best to prioritize resources and revive the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic.
``Turning a new page on the calendar doesn't erase all the difficulties of the last year,'' Chairwoman Karen Spiegel said. ``We'll be tackling many challenges and expecting many changes in Riverside County.''
Spiegel was next in line to serve at the helm of the board, having finished her term as vice chair in 2020, during which Supervisor Manuel Perez was the chair.
The seats are rotated from one district supervisor to the next annually -- if the traditional process is followed. Sup
