The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors announced their selection of a new Chief Administrative Officer in a statement Monday.
Terri Daly has been the county's Assistant Chief Administrative Officer since July 2010 and will begin as CAO on Dec. 14, following formal approval of her contract.
"We are fortunate that Terri already has a proven track record of success as a county executive," said Supervisor Norma Santiago in the statement. "Terri's experience and get-it-done approach will serve the county well."
Prior to her work in El Dorado County, Daly was Amador County's administrative officer. Daly holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from Stanford University and an master's of business administration from San Francisco State University.
"I appreciate both the opportunity and responsibility the Board has given me as CAO," Daly said in the statement. "I am prepared to help the Board confront the challenges ahead, and eager to help plan and build a bright future for El Dorado County."
Under general policy direction of the board of supervisors, the Chief Administrative Officer plans, organizes, coordinates and administers all county functions and activities, provides policy guidance and coordinates the activities of department heads, according to the statement.
The Chief Administrative Officer has primary responsibility for the preparation and administration of the annual county budget.
