Mendocino County Third District Supervisor Georgeanne Croskey, appointed by the governor to the long-untended seat in May, said Wednesday that she will serve out her appointive term but not seek an elective mandate when it runs out in December 2018.

“I am a mother, a wife, and a public servant,” Croskey said in a statement issued by the county executive's office. “I love my family and I love serving the Third District. However, my husband and children need me to be a wife and mother first. It is with great regret that I will be leaving this position and Mendocino County.”
