Last week, Stanislaus County Chief Executive Officer Monica Nino accepted the post of San Joaquin County administrator. It ended a months-long search to replace outgoing County Administrator Manuel Lopez, who retired in March. Since he left, Rosa Lee has been filling in as the interim head.
It wasn’t clear how long it would be before Nino took over. She said she wanted to ensure a smooth transition in Stanislaus County. Her contract there says she needs to give six months’ notice before leaving, according to this story in the Modesto Bee. It goes on to say that that is expected to be renegotiated.
