Yolo County supervisors this week decided to stay in-house for their top legal adviser, naming current Senior Deputy County Counsel Philip Pogledich to replace outgoing County Counsel Robyn Drivon after a lengthy search process.

Pogledich, who has served as senior deputy county counsel since 2007, will take over as county counsel in August.

The decision to replace Drivon as county counsel was made by the Board of Supervisors during a closed-session meeting back in February. Drivon’s four-year term was scheduled to end two months later and the board voted to not to renew her appointment, but neither board members nor Drivon herself have offered any explanation.

Drivon had served as county counsel since 2006 and was an assistant county counsel for Yolo County for a year before that. She also served as interim Yolo County administrator in 2009 following the retirement of former County Administrator Sharon Jensen and until the appointment of current County Administrator Patrick Blacklock.

Drivon has since been hired as El Dorado County counsel effective Sept. 2.

Pogledich, meanwhile, joined the county in 2004 and was named senior deputy county counsel three years later. His focus has been on local government law, land use and natural resources, real property and public works, agriculture and the Williamson Act, solid waste and recycling, and policy concerning the Bay-Delta. Prior to joining Yolo County, he worked for Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP.

“Phil has served us well over the years as counsel on a broad range of substantial policy and legal matters, and has now risen to the top amongst a large pool of qualified candidates,” said Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chair Don Saylor in a press release. “We look forward to continuing our work with Phil in serving the residents of Yolo County.”

For his part, Pogledich said, “I greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve as the county counsel.

“The office has a vital role in county government, acting as the legal advisor to the Board of Supervisors, county administrator, all county departments and a broad range of other local entities,” he said. “I look forward to leading the very capable team of attorneys and staff within the office and, most importantly, ensuring that the office provides outstanding service to its clients.”

In addition to serving as legal advisor for county officials, departments, schools and special districts, the office also represents the county in all civil law matters; prepares ordinances, resolutions and contracts; and investigates the legality of claims made upon the county.

The position is one of the highest paid in Yolo County, with an annual salary of $194,799.
