Head of OC department in charge of conservatorships and estates with no heirs retires

Orange County Public Guardian/Assistant Public Administrator Lucille Lyon will step down from the positions she has held since July 2011, part of a comprehensive reorganization of the two offices.
Lyon will retire after nearly 38 years in the mental health field.

As Public Guardian, she was in charge of overseeing the County’s conservatorship programs for those unable to care for themselves and their affairs; as Assistant Public Administrator, she managed the estates of those who died without legal heirs.

Supervisors combined the elected position of Public Administrator with District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, who will run in June for the combined elective offices.

The office of the Public Guardian, an appointed position, will be folded into the Health Care Agency. Supervisors this week appointed Adult Mental Health Services manager Kevin Smith as Interim Public Guardian.

Orange County supervisors brought Lyon, a Los Angeles County resident, aboard after Public Administrator/Public Guardian John Williams resigned following allegations of mismanagement by the Orange County Grand Jury and a County investigation. Lyon had served as a division chief for Los Angeles County Office of the Public Guardian and spent fifteen years as Chief Deputy Public Guardian for Riverside County.

“We’re very thankful for Lucille’s willingness to help Orange County during a troubled time and we wish her all the best in retirement,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Shawn Nelson said.
