Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan, D-Alamo, has been appointed as an ex-officio member of the Delta Protection Commission, which is responsible for protecting, maintaining and enhancing the Delta environment.
Buchanan, whose district includes Galt and Thornton, was appointed by Assembly Speaker John Perez.
“The majority of the Delta is within the 15th Assembly District,” Buchanan said in a news release. “We must ensure that the Delta is a region where agriculture, habitat, recreation and residents thrive together.”
Buchanan added, “Recognizing and enhancing the unique cultural, recreational and agricultural resources of the Delta benefits all Californians. Everyone in California depends on the Delta for something.”
