Madera County held a swearing in ceremony at the first Board of Supervisor meeting of 2023 for all the officials that won in the November 2022 election.
Surrounded by his family during Tuesday’s board meeting, District 1 Supervisor Jordan Wamhoff was sworn in by Rebecca Martinez, County Clerk/Recorder/Registrar. District 5 Supervisor Bobby Macaulay was sworn in by his father.
Supervisor Wamhoff succeeds Brett Frazier, who served two terms as Supervisor for District 1. Supervisor Wamhoff moved to Madera 15 years ago due to its position as a quality place to live and raise a family. He lives in Madera Ranchos with his wife and three children. Currently, all his children attend Golden Valley schools.
Frazier continues to work in the county and was elected as the County’s Assessor.
Supervisor Macaulay was born and raised in District 5, and currently lives in Northfork. He succeeds Tom Wheeler, who retired after four terms and 16 years as Supervisor for District 5. Prior to his election, Supervisor Macaulay worked as Chief of Staff to former Supervisor Wheeler.
Other elected officials sworn in were David Rogers as District 2 Supervisor, Brett Frazier as Assessor, David Richstone as Auditor/Controller, Martinez as County Clerk/Recorder/Registrar, Sally Moreno as District Attorney, Tyson Pogue as Sheriff, and Tracy Kennedy as Treasurer-Tax Collector.
Pogue was sworn in to begin his first elected term as the 15th Sheriff-Coroner for Madera County.
“Sheriff Pogue has led Madera County with integrity, dedication, and transparency during some of the most challenging, unprecedented circumstances our community has ever faced,” read a statement released by the MCSO.
