Modesto Councilman Mani Grewal to Join Stanislaus Board of Supervisors

Governor Gavin Newsom has appointed outgoing Modesto City Councilman Mani Grewal to a vacant seat on the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors. Grewal was appointed to District 4 last week. He replaces Tom Berryhill, who passed away this summer.

Grewal, a Democrat, was elected to the City Council in 2015. He later launched an unsuccessful challenge against state Assemblywoman Susan Eggman.

“Being born and raised in this region, Stanislaus County is my home. My parents came here over 50 years ago,” Grewal told the Sacramento Bee. “It’s an honor to carry on his legacy and serve the constituents of District 4 to the best of my ability, to gain their trust and confidence. The public service that Supervisor Berryhill and the entire Berryhill family have given to this region is something I strive for myself.”

Grewal will join two other new supervisors: Republican Matthew “Buck” Condit and Democrat Channce Condit. He has vowed to put partisan politics aside and focus chiefly on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grewal will carry out the remainder of Berryhill’s term, which ends on Jan. 2, 2023.
