Supervisor Kate Sears, who has represented Marin County’s District 3 since June 2011, on Tuesday was elected president of the Board of Supervisors for the first time as part of the board’s reorganization.

Sears replaced District 5 Supervisor Judy Arnold as Board President by a 4-0-1 vote; Supervisor Susan Adams was absent. Supervisor Katie Rice was elected vice president and Supervisor Adams elected second vice president.

“I’m honored and excited about being board president in 2014 and look forward to working on behalf of all of our Marin residents,” Supervisor Sears said. “Certainly there are challenges ahead. As a county, and as a community, we face issues now and into the future that require us to harmonize different interests and step up our personal involvement.”

Sears, a Sausalito resident, grew up in Southern Marin, where she has lived most of her life. She earned a doctorate in political science from the University of Michigan and a law degree from Harvard. She worked 16 years in private practice specializing in employment litigation and labor law, then nearly six years for the California Attorney General’s Office.

She became involved in local government by serving on the Sausalito Planning Commission and eventually was appointed to the District 3 Supervisor’s seat by Gov. Jerry Brown to replace the late Charles McGlashan. She was elected to the post in 2012.

Duties of the board president include managing the flow of board meetings, working with administrators to set agendas, signing documents on behalf of the board, representing the county at government and special events and playing a lead role as a county spokesperson, in addition to the many other standing obligations that each supervisor has to local and regional boards and commissions.

Sears said her priorities as board president include addressing sea-level rise, expanding energy efficiency including solar opportunities, developing gray-water programs and promoting water stewardship. Addressing traffic challenges, expanding use of public transit and enhancing equity through education and decent wages also are high on her list.

“Broadening our notions of community and encouraging positive individual engagement will be key to effectively tackling these issues and the many others that are important to our residents,” she said.

    I’ve been advised should I actually wish to accomplish anything – to just call you.
    There are many things to speak with you about the least of which involves a Sherrif from Marin City SubStation THREATENING ME AND ALLOWING a citizen (who turns out to be a Client of ROCO DANCE STUDIO) in Tam Valley to continue spreading SEXUAL MATERIAL of ME that her PEEPING TOM HUSBAND took from the Second Story Landing at ROCO DANCE STUDIO. I have endured the CHILDREN (and Parents) of ROCO yelling across the Parking Lot at me such Derogeraory comments as “FAGGOT”, “MOVE YOU FUCKING PERVERT”, Etc. (really? from an ‘Arts Community’ based business?). Parents of the Children and Staff at ROCO have allowed their children to hack into my Computer and the Corrupt Sheriff i mention here HAS SUPPORTED THIS BEHAVIOR. I have found Poison Dog Cookies at the Base of my Staircase. Had Bottles thrown at me from passing cars while walking my dogs. I was even shot at from Tennessee Valley Road when walking my dogs. People that RIOCO Affiliates have told about THEIR VERSION of this Situation have approuched me in Marin, SantaRosa, The East Bay and San Francisco saying every Foul and Nasty thing you can think of to me, THREATENED ME, FOLLOWED ME. Most of it I Documented, As Documentation was difficult for me and I knew they were following me, I led them on One Wild Goose Chase after Another. As They Used their Children to Hack My Communications, I took them to Every Dark Place I could think of Where I recorded their Efforts, Where I had Cameras Waiting to Document them.
    When they see me ILL from Medication, they believe I’m Drugged Out on Illegal Substances. They Have Spread these Rumors EVERYWHERE, I have used it to MY ADVANTAGE to Capture Them and Record Them. But Now, people overseas are convinced that Law Enforcement has participated in this as well.
    Should I find Out that Sheriff Personnel, while disregarding my calls for help against crimes committed against me are acting in Collusion with my Oppressors, or, that they are attempting to create files against me while committedsuch offences ~ I WILL TURN THIS COUNTY INTO STUEBENVILLE ON STEROIDS!
    I carry a conference recorder everywhere I GO. The Tape of the Sherrif threatening me AND telling me I am “Disgusting IN THAT VIDEO and I BETTER MOVE if I KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR ME”. He also REFUSED to come out when I Called to report this woman as she was in the parking lot at ROCO, showing the video to ANYONE (including minors) and Inciting VIOLENCE TOWARDS ME. He refused to come out stating I did not know the NAME of the Woman committing this crime, I have recorded EVERY call to the Sherrifs sub station – I have taped all of what I am Mentioning here, the evidence is in Dublin Ireland and Berlin Germany where the Laws regarding WHAT can be exposed in a DOCUMENTARY are MUCH different than here. NO ONE IN MARIN COUNTY will be ALLOWED the OPPORTUNITY to TAMPER with this EVIDENCE, It STAYS OVERSEAS – I HAVE RETAINED NO COPIES.
    I intend to PUBLICALLY ASK EVERY CELEBRITY and ‘Luminary’ in Marin what their Opinions of ALL THESE MATTERS ARE (by name). I worked in Entertainment MANY Years Ago (even healthy I was unable to keep up with 6day-16hr days a week for very long), but I DO KNOW how to reach anyone I wish to.
    For now, however, it is Monthes on End I am CONSISTENTLY WOKEN by MOJO DOJO’s BARKING DRILL SARGEANT at 5:30am WITH Pounding Music, kinda like Yogurt with Sprinkles on top just not palletable. ALSO Newly Opened GOOD EARTH weekdays Deliveries prior to 7am.
    If you would be so kind as to call me regarding what can be done to address these concerns, it would be Most Appreciated.
    I am 59 years old, I am one of the Longest Term AIDS Survivors in this Country. When I moved here to Marin, my DREAM was to become Self Sufficient (to end my Slavery to the Social Security System), to Open a Food Pantry in Marin where Individuals of Low Income and Disabled Status could come Take a Bag of Groceries home weekly (as you know, the Food Bank is unable to address this ‘Individual’ need).
    However, at this point and due to the excessive strain on me from the stress of these matters, my only goal is to outlive my dogs – you just can’t explain to them that you did not abandon them, but merely passed to the next bardo. Unfortunately, due to the Situations at Hand, I no Longer have Faith that I can even Accomplish THIS Simple Goal.
    I am taking the LAST of the HIVmedications available to me that I have not become resistantto – such is the plight of those of us who have endured this long. BUT… I don’t see the point of continuing to take Volitile Caustic Medications and dealing with the Side Effects when I am faced with Corrupt Law Enforcement who pick and choose what laws they will support, Businesses that are allowed to Operate Outside the Law. I don’t see the point in continuing these efforts when I am A Prisoner in MY OWN HOME waiting for Law Enforcement to concoct a reason to approuch me and make false claims – Most Likely ending with me Dead in MY OWN HOME.
    My female dog “Hopper” is Gregarious and Manically Happy – I call her my “Clown Car of Love and Joy”, she would run to any one who appeared at this property to greet them and shower them with love. I’m tired of waiting for Corrupt Law Personnel to come here and shoot her right in front of me. By the way, seems to be a Terrible Form of Conflicting Interest that the Sheriff’s Dept controls the Coroners Dept – What do They Do Now When They Shoot a Minority Child in the Back? Do they just roll him over, blow another bullit through the kid and say “Oh No, That’s an Exit Wound?” (Not anybodie’s White Child, however, Am I Correct?)
    I am contemplating STOPPING taking my AIDS Medications, Resistance to ALL HIV MEDICATIONS Available to Me will Follow Suit – should I take this course,
    To HONOR the Sherrifs, To HONOR ROCO DANCE STUDIO, To HONOR Quality Motorcycle Repair (proprietor states “They’lljust kill him, there’s too much at stake” WHO WILL KILL ME? The Sheriff’s? ROCO ASSOCIATES?), To HONOR Pet Pro’s Proprietor, To Honor the Marin County Health Dept (more about them later), To HONOR Marin Aids Project (both the Health Dept and M.A.P. break EVERY Hershel (sp?) law there is and should be facing FEDERAL CHARGES for Mishandling AND Misappropriating Ryan White Funds for close to a decade), To HONOR THESE and MORE I intend to Name and Saddle EVERY SINGLE CHILD who Attends ROCO with the RESPONSIBILITY of My Pending DEATH due to these Circumstances, IN EVERY PUBLIC MEASURE AVAILABLE.
    My Associates will Make CERTAIN This Story, These Events, These Crimes follow EVERY SINGLE PERSON involved the REST of Their Lives.
    I do not appear to be the kind of Guy you could just come upon and not walk away with some scars should you decide to attack me. If Any Party Involved in this would Harrass ME, they cetainly would harrass Weak Children, the Elderly, those even ILLER than Myself.
    I do NOT have the Strength to Fight these things Alone I will NOT ALLOW THESE SITUATIONS TO GO UNNOTICED by THE ENTIRE Internet Community.
