Coonerty is a former two-time Mayor and County Supervisor of Santa Cruz County as well as an entrepreneur, author, and educator. "Santa Cruz County will thrive or struggle in the coming decades depending on the quality of our leaders. I look forward to building on a strong program by providing people the skills, knowledge and connections they need to effectively lead. Leadership Santa Cruz County helped shape my knowledge of our community decades ago, I can't wait to work with the next generation of leaders."

 

As Executive Director, Coonerty will be responsible for strategic planning, program development, fundraising, and community engagement. He will work closely with the board of directors, staff, volunteers, and community partners to further LSCC's mission and expand its reach and impact.
