The man who served as District 2 Supervisor for southeastern Kern County has passed away after a struggle with a serious illness. Zack Scrivner took over the chair vacated by Don Maben when he retired in 2010, and made the announcement before a stunned audience at this morning’s [tue] board meeting. Maben was a former LA County Sheriff’s deputy who served two terms on the Board of Supervisors after moving to Tehachapi with his wife, Billie, but we have not been able to confirm his age. Maben died Tuesday morning, the Bakersfield Californian reports funeral services are pending.
