The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) offered its gratitude and congratulations to its First Vice President, Randon Lane, who has resigned to accept a presidential appointment in Washington, D.C.
On Tuesday, Lane announced his resignation as Mayor Pro-Tem of the City of Murrieta, as well as his appointed roles at SCAG, the League of California Cities and the Riverside Transit Agency, to accept a role within the U.S. Department of Transportation.
“Randon has shown extraordinary leadership on regional transportation issues throughout Southern California. His city and our region will miss him, but we know he will accomplish great things in Washington,” said SCAG President Bill Jahn.
Rex Richardson, a Long Beach City Councilmember, will replace Lane as SCAG’s First Vice President. The agency’s Regional Council will select Richardson’s successor as Second Vice President at its September meeting.
