Our Contra Costa County Administrator, David J. Twa, won statewide recognition with the 2018 Distinguished Service Award from the California Association of County Executives (CACE). The prestigious award was presented at the General Assembly of the California State Association of Counties Conference on November 28, 2018 in San Diego.
The top award for County Administrator or Executive for Distinguished Service is only handed out for truly outstanding and meritorious work. The annual award is given to an individual CAO or CEO who has demonstrated respected leadership, shown exemplary work to benefit the community through long term positive results, and serves as a role model for others in cities, counties and the state.

She said earlier, “We are proud to celebrate our County Administrator David Twa’s selection as CAO of the year.
