Gibson plans to work in the field

  Plumas County’s new agriculture chief doesn’t want to spend too much time behind his desk. The veteran inspector plans to be out in the field.

  “I intend to be out there as much as possible,” said Tim Gibson during an interview in his new office Jan. 3.

  Gibson has been working as the county inspector since 2001 and filled in as the interim ag commissioner before the county hired Keith Mahan in November 2008. Gibson wasn’t qualified to hold the top position at that time because he didn’t have the necessary certifications.
