OROVILLE, Calif. – After 16 years of service, Butte County’s Chief Administrative Officer, Shari McCracken, announced she will retire from Butte County on October 1, 2020.

McCracken joined Butte County in 2005 as a Deputy Chief Administrative Officer. McCracken was appointed interim Chief Administrative Officer in Nov. 2017 after the retirement of former Chief Administrative Officer, Paul Hahn.

In April of 2018, McCracken became the County’s permanent Chief Administrative Officer.

During her service, McCracken has managed a variety of countywide projects that significantly enhanced the organization, collaborated with local partners to address regional challenges, and has led the County through numerous disasters, including the Camp Fire and the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Butte County Board of Supervisors.

"Shari really stepped up when she took on the position of Chief Administrative Officer, and she’s faced significant challenges the last few years,” said Steve Lambert, Board of Supervisors Chairman. “While Shari was set to retire, she agreed to stay on to provide leadership the organization greatly needed. She has given a lot to this community and has done so happily. She will be missed and we wish her nothing but the best in her retirement.”

In a news release, McCracken said, "I have been so fortunate to work for Butte County, and appreciate the support of the Board over the years. The County has an amazing team of leaders in its Department Heads, and passionate and loyal staff that support them, so I leave knowing the County is in good hands as I head off to enjoy family and travel.”

An expansive recruitment to find McCracken’s replacement started on June 2, with an anticipated appointment announced sometime in August, according to the board of supervisors.
