On May 6, 2020, the Board of Supervisor voted to appoint Tammie Weyker-Adkins to the position of Chief of Staff, effective May 10, 2020. The vote was made at the motion of Supervisor Amy Shuklian and seconded by Supervisor Eddie Valero. The motion was approved 5-0. Weyker-Adkins fills the position vacated by Julieta Martinez, who was promoted as Economic Development Coordinator for the Tulare County Resource Management Agency in March.

During her time at the agency, Weyker-Adkins served as the Public Information Officer and managed external media for Public Health, Mental Health, Emergency Preparedness Operations and Human Services programs. Having served seven years as spokesperson for the agency, Weyker-Adkins brings a wealth of knowledge in the area of public communications and project management to the Board of Supervisors office.
“We are thrilled to have Tammie join our office as the Chief of Staff to the Board and look forward to utilizing her management and communication skills to improve community outreach and advocacy efforts on behalf of the people of Tulare County,” stated Board Chair Pete Vander Poel.
Weyker-Adkins holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Fresno State University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications from University of Wisconsin at La Crosse.
As Chief of Staff, Weyker-Adkins will aid County Supervisors in coordinating work of Board Representatives, public relations, and constituent services.
