What does your County Supervisor Do for YOU?

As your supervisor, I work to support Lompoc, a full-service city that provides utilities, public safety, planning and recreational services for you.

The County partners with cities on important issues that benefit from regional collaboration:

  • Wildfire protection and regional emergency dispatch
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Parks, Trails, Libraries, Arts & Culture
  • Regional Broadband & Economic Development

The Board of Supervisors also sets the course on the following services for residents wherever they live in the County:

  • The social safety net including public health, behavioral wellness, and social services.
  • Criminal justice programs including the Public Defender, Probation, & the independently elected District Attorney & Sheriff.
  • Administrative services such as elections, public records, tax administration, and auditing.

Finally, for those who live outside Lompoc’s city limits, the County provides municipal services such as public safety; streets, bridges and flood control; land use planning; parks and trails.

With new Supervisorial Districts, I now have the privilege of representing the residents of the City of Lompoc on the Board of Supervisors.
I’ve been getting to know Lompoc, and I’d like to get to know you!

I also have an office in Lompoc at the Veteran’s Building. For appointments call Third District Chief Scheduler, Gina Fischer, at (805) 568-2192.
For issues related to Lompoc, call Lompoc Third District Representative Alma Hernandez at (805) 699-1140.

During my 5 years on the Board of Supervisors, I have focused on the following issues:

Increasing Fire Safety & Resilience

...advocating for the new Regional Fire Dispatch and promoting shared fire safety through service on the Fire Safe Council Board.

Enhancing Parks, Trails & Libraries

... sponsoring the countywide Recreation Master Plan and increasing library funding and regional library planning.

Tackling Homelessness

...clearing encampments humanely by offering new transitional housing and permanent supportive housing projects like the Hedges House of Hope in Isla Vista and the planned Super 8 motel conversion.

Supporting Mental Health Initiatives

... such as Laura’s Law, Co-Response, the new South County Sobering Center, and new beds at the Champion Center in Lompoc.

Internet for All

... spearheading the County-wide Broadband Strategic Plan that will set us up to apply for significant new state and federal funds to develop infrastructure and deliver affordable services to all.

Being highly responsive to residents

… answering calls and emails within 24 hours and working hard to help them get the services they need and make county government more responsive to their questions and concerns.
