Board of supervisors chooses new county clerk-recorder
Eliana Cano, the current Santa Barbara County chief deputy clerk-recorder, chosen for the position
– At the most recent San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors meeting, the board chose Elaina Cano for the position of County Clerk-Recorder in a 4-1 vote. The board decided to accept applications from the community to fill the role left vacant after the resignation a former county Clerk- Recorder Tommy Gong in July.
44 people applied for the position. The board appointed a committee tasked with vetting the applicants and that committee forwarded three candidates:
- Elena Cano, who has been serving as Santa Barbara County Chief Deputy Clerk-Recorder and she’s also a former city clerk for San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach.
- Helen Nolan, San Luis Obispo County‘s Acting Clerk Recorder.
- Jeffrey Barry, former Yolo County Chief Deputy Clerk-Recorder.
Barry sent a letter to the county a week ago on Friday announcing he was withdrawing his candidacy. All of the supervisors agreed both Cano and Nolan were well qualified for the job. All communicated that it was a very tough decision to pick one of the two. Supervisor Arnold was the dissenting vote.
