The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors has appointed Linda Pinfold to the position of Stanislaus County Agricultural Commissioner and Sealer of Weights and Measures for a four-year term.
Pinfold was identified as the top candidate to lead one of the top innovative agriculture counties in California. Pinfold brings significant management experience to Stanislaus County and will be tasked with being a visionary leader responsible for balancing successful commerce and enforcing regulations. She is coming to Stanislaus County from San Joaquin County where she served as the Assistant Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer.
With over 24 years of experience in Agriculture, Pinfold will plan, organize, and direct Stanislaus County enforcement of the California Food and Agriculture code and the California Business and Professions Code relating to the County Department of Agriculture and Weights and Measures.
As the new Agricultural Commissioner, Pinfold is focused on promoting and protecting the agricultural industries, environments, and public health of Stanislaus County while ensuring equity in the marketplace for good sold by weights and measures.
“I take the mission to protect and promote to heart; agriculture is just not a business, this is a livelihood, and a culture that transcends generations,” said Pinfold.
According to the most recent Stanislaus County Agriculture Report, the county has an annual crop value over $3.5 billion.
