At its January 2004 meeting the Los Angeles County Citizen's Economy and Efficiency Commission reelected Robert H. Philibosian to his fifth term as Chairman of the Commission.

Upon his election Mr. Philibosian commented, "I would like to acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of the Commission and its members over the past several years. With this demonstrated commitment and enthusiasm the Commission will continue to contribute to the improvement in both the efficiency and effectiveness of County operations."

Mr. Philibosian, an appointee to the Commission of Supervisor Don Knabe, has previously served as the County's District Attorney after being Chief Assistant and Chief Deputy California Attorney General. Mr. Philibosian is currently a partner with the law firm Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP.

He received his undergraduate degree in political science from Stanford University and his Juris Doctorate from Southwestern University School of Law.

He is a trustee for Southwestern University Law School and was the former Chairman of the Ad Hoc Hearing Body on Governance for the County Department of Health Services.

The Economy and Efficiency Commission has twenty-one members. Each of the five members of the Board of Supervisors appoints four commissioners to the Commission for a two-year term which may be extended by reappointment. The previous year's Grand Jury Foreperson is appointed by the Board as the Commission's 21st member. Created in 1964, the Commission is charged with reviewing all aspects of local government management, operations and policies. It submits recommendations directly to the Board of Supervisors with the objective of improving the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of local government. The members of the Commission offer their time to the County on a voluntary basis and serve without pay.
