Following a long career in the private sector working his way up to Vice President of a local Pulp Mill; and owning his own local business; Rex Bohn shifted his attention to becoming a Humboldt County Supervisor.

Rex has been named “Citizen of the Year,” “Volunteer of the Year,” and “Distinguished Citizen of the Year” by local organizations.
Now in his fourth term, Supervisor Bohn’s commitment to his community extends further than his own backyard. “We have an inordinate number of special districts in our county. In rural California we’ve found if you’re not at the table, then you’re on the menu! Representation on state boards levels the playing field.” Rex is the past Chair of the Rural County Representatives of CA (RCRC), is or has served on the Boards of the State Fair 9th District Ag Association, the Air Quality District, the Emergency Medical Services, Waste Management, and numerous other governing boards.
He has spoken at Assembly and Committee meetings in Sacramento regarding land use, transportation issues, telecommunications, forestry, and cannabis.
