San Bernardino County Supervisor Janice Rutherford has been honored by the American Society for Public Administration Inland Empire chapter with the 2015 Outstanding Elected Official award.

The American Society for Public Administration presented the award to Rutherford on Wednesday at the Victoria Club in Riverside.

“Supervisor Rutherford was chosen because she personifies the best of the public service – thoughtfulness, commitment, and practicality,” ASPA board member Monty Van Wart said in a statement Thursday. “Furthermore, the Inland ASPA chapter also recognizes her unusual ability to collaborate, unite, and inspire.”

Rutherford served as a Fontana City Councilwoman for 10 years before being elected county supervisor in November 2010. She was re-elected in November 2014 and represents the county’s second supervisorial district that encompasses the cities of Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, Fontana and the mountain communities of Crestline, Lytle Creek, Mt. Baldy, and Lake Arrowhead, among others.
