Butte County District 4 Supervisor Steve Lambert was re-elected to a third four-year term last June, and Tuesday morning, that third term became official.
Lambert was sworn in for his new term by Butte County Clerk-Recorder Candace Grubbs during a ceremony at the Butte County administration building.
District 1 Supervisor Bill Connelly was sworn in for an unprecedented fourth term, and District 5 Supervisor Doug Teeter was sworn in for his second term.
Butte County Chief Administrative Officer Paul Hahn said supervisors put in long hours, not just attending the twice-monthly county supervisor meetings, but also serving on numerous boards and commissions that require additional meetings.
“This is not a part-time job,” Hahn said.
Butte County has a $500 million annual budget and more than 2,300 employees.
Lambert said he’s humbled to be back for a third term.
“I feel very proud to be able to serve the residents of my district and Butte County,” Lambert said. “I’m just here to help people.”
