Welcome From John

Welcome to our District 1 website. I hope you find this site helpful for learning about our community, the projects we're working on, how we can serve you, and where to find resources in Contra Costa County. Click here for my most recent bio. 

Representing our proud and diverse community is a great privilege for me. I'm committed to make county government more effective and creative while maintaining critical services and protecting our role as the safety net for our most vulnerable residents. I've worked hard, alongside others, to fight for access to quality health care, environmental justice and better air quality, providing youth with supportive services and opportunities, and reducing poverty and violence. I always want to hear your ideas.

I grew up in West County and have been honored to serve on the Board of Supervisors since 1999.

District One includes the cities of Richmond, San Pablo, El Cerrito, part of Pinole, and the unincorporated communities of East Richmond Heights, El Sobrante, Kensington, Montalvin Manor, Tara Hills, North Richmond, and Rollingwood. (District Map and County's GIS mapping tool.)
