Last year, I was blessed with a new heart and kidney. I feel healthy and strong and am grateful for the privilege of continuing to represent you on the Board of Supervisors. I am proud of the many accomplishments we have made together:

Securing $1 billion in transportation funding to improve I-680, Highway 4, build the Bypass and the fourth bore of the Caldecott Tunnel, bring e-BART to the area and make safety improvements to Vasco Road

Protecting the environment and the Delta by holding our area’s largest landfill operator accountable to follow environmental laws and opposing the building of twin tunnels to send our Delta water to Southern California

Preventing crime and keeping our neighborhoods safe by authoring laws to help us identify and cleanup poorly maintained rental and vacant property and organizing our annual Gang Task Force and Youth Summit to reduce the influence of gangs Protecting open space and reducing sprawl by my strong support for the Urban Limit Line, controlling development and protecting our beautiful hillsides and open areas

Yet, we have much more work to do together to make Contra Costa County a place that is safe and enjoyable for our residents. I am proud to have earned support for my re-election of our Sheriff, District Attorney, local police, Mayors and Councilmembers in Martinez, Pittsburg, Hercules and Antioch, water district directors, local school board members, and our entire Congressional and State delegation. Having your support would mean a great deal to me – thank you!

For a decade, the majority of our Supervisors have voted to cut deals for cronies and big donors. Last year, for their good work, they tried to give themselves a 33% pay raise.
We need big change to restore people’s confidence that the Board of Supervisors is looking after the people’s interests – not their own interests – or the special interests.

We’ll only get real change and real leadership if voters like you insist on it.
I’ll bring a fresh face and new perspective to the Board. I’ll be a voice for tackling the cost of housing, growing a small business, and improving county government efficiency. I’ll be there for you every day.

I’m a third generation county resident, raising my family in the community where I grew up.
I’ve spent 22 years as a housing and community professional bringing hope to first time buyers, veterans, seniors, and our local workforce – while protecting neighborhood integrity.

I serve as Governor Brown’s appointee to the California Housing Finance Agency improving housing statewide.
As Vice-Mayor of Martinez, I’ve championed putting more police on our streets, helped protect 44 acres of ridgeline and worked to expand our marina to attract jobs – while balancing the budget and expanding reserves.

Mud will fly at me because fighting for change involves taking on the political machine. But I’m ready. Bring it on. Together, we must win this fight because the outcome is too important for our families’ future.

Vote for change. I’d be honored by your support. www.anamarieforcc.com

  • Public safety: Keep experienced police officers in our neighborhoods by improving working conditions. Reopen our fire stations by reordering priorities and more imaginative staffing solutions. Address public nuisances via aggressive code enforceme
  • Protect our environment: Just say no (ie Bernie's "NO" to fracking) to unsafe oil trains carrying highly flammable crude through our communities. Seek "green" solutions to our energy, housing and transportation needs.
  • Transportation: Highway 4 is currently a parking lot. A 12,000 home city is scheduled to be built at Willow Pass on the old Naval Weapons Station.. The County must insist upon transportation alternatives including reopening Port Chicago Hwy.
Profesión:Assistant District Attorney - ensuring public safety

Six generations of my family have lived and live in Contra Costa.  Returning home from an overseas US Army Infantry assignment, the sight of Mt. Diablo signaled on an emotional level that I was home.

I went to grade and high school in Contra Costa,  Earned an AA Degree from Diablo Valley College, BA from San Francisco State University and a Juris Doctor from Golden Gate University.

I have served as the Mayor of Martinez, School Board Member, Prresident of the Contra Costa Peace Officers Association and as a Deputy District Attorney in Contra Costa County.  I am more than familiar with quality of life issues confronting our communities.  As a Mayor and Local Agency Formation Commission Member I led the fight to preserve the Briones Agricultural Preserve and several major parks in Martinez.  I led the City in parnership with the East Bay Regional Park District to preserve the Franklin Hills Ridge Line and enhance our Carquinez Scenic Park.  As Chair of the Contra Costa Mayors Conference, I helped formulate the governence structure for the Contra Costa Transportation Authority.  

I married my wife, Dusty, in Contra Costa and we are raising two beautiful daughters, Sophia and Madelyn.  We live in Martinez.

Currenly, I work as an Assistant District Attorney responsible for litigating violent crime cases that involve sanity and competency issues.

I regard serving as a member of your Board of Supervisors as both a priviledge and serious responsiblity.  A Board Member is responsible for safe guarding the quality of life interests of ALL our fellow ciitizens and is simply not a voice for special interest ... regardless of the interest group.

In my view, a Board Member must have the courage and integrity to do what is right by our community.  Both are important along with a commitment to transparency and accessiblity.  Every member of our community deserves to be heard.  Morreover, I have learned that neither a Mayor or a District Attorney can be effective unless they not only give folks an opportunity to be heard but also receive the curtesy of being LISTENED to by their reprresentative.

Also, as a military veteran, Assistant District Attorney responsible for prosecuting serious criminal cases and former Mayor, that in order to effectivly accomplish goals sought everyone must be able to work with others, respect their point of view and move forward in the spirit of that respect by accomodating their concerns whenever possible.

As a former Mayor, school board member, I helped build and create a new City Hall, new Senior Center, train station, flood control projects, water treatment plant and significant open space (Franklin Hills Ridge Line, Briones Agricultural Preserve) and parks (Hidden Lakes, John Muir Memorial, Veterans Monument) among others. We also built school and sports facilities.

As a twice elected chair of the Contra Costa Mayors Conference and former member of LAFCO I know the importance regional planning.
We must stop oil by rail to Rodeo and we need to challenge, regionally, the proposal to build 12,000 homes in the Naval Weapons Station at Willow Pass or Highway4 will become more of a parking lot than it is already.

Over the last sixteen years, Contra Costa has suffered critical budget short falls and an enormous tax shift from heavy industry to the pocketbooks of the working middle class. Public safety, pensions, mental health and other public service have all been put at significant risk.

As a U.S Army Infantry Veteran, former Tax Payers Advocate for the Assessors Office, past President of the Contra Costa Peace Officers Association, and current Assistant District Attorney for many years, I have a commitment of service to our community and country. I can help return a can-do spirit to County Government where service to our citizens comes first.

Profesión:Insurance Agency Principal
Mayor, City of Hercules — Cargo elegido (2011current)

 

I moved to West Contra Costa County in 1975 at the age of 20 where I worked and managed a couple of local restaurants. In 1976 I started my insurance career as a door to door life insurance sales person and eventually managed seven agents. I later worked as a union carpenter until 1987 when I began my career as a personal lines insurance agent. Today, I am the owner of my own agency in Pinole were I work side by side with my wife of 32 years, Lori.  We have lived in Hercules since 1989. We have raised our two daughters in Hercules, and now they both live and work in the Bay Area.

As a resident in Hercules I have been known to attend council meetings, HOA meetings and school meetings. I participated in keeping Franklin Canyon closed to development and protected as open space. A local newspaper even once called my the “Gadfly of Hercules” due to my nonstop complaints of mismanagement of the City of Hercules finances preceding the recession in 2010.

 

 Early 2011, I and other Hercules residents frustrated by the lack of transparency and fiscal management of the City of Hercules, started a recall of three councilmembers. As a result of this effort, the standing mayor resigned and we were successful in the recall of two councilmembers. I was elected to the Hercules City Council with two other new councilmembers for a total of three new reform councilmembers in June 2011. Our new reformed-focused city council then started the process of reconstructing the City of Hercules, starting with hiring a new City Manager and new City Attorney. The new City Manager hired a new Finance Director, Public Works Manager, and City Clerk who would help us drive the City of Hercules in a new direction. Due to the efforts of the Hercules Council and support of our City Workers Hercules now has two months of operational reserves available.

 

 Today, I am currently serving as the Mayor of Hercules for the second time in five years. I served as the chair of our regional solid waste committee, the West Contra Costa Integrated Waste Management Authority (WCCIWMA), as a member of our wastewater committee and as the alternate to our regional traffic committee. During my time on WCCIWMA, we passed a $120 million post collection contract that residents now receive for recycled waste products, and as part of the wastewater committee, I have participated in the $52 million dollar capital improvement of the Pinole/Hercules Wastewater plant.

 

I am running for Contra Costa Board of Supervisor District 5 to represent all residents in our district. Currently, District 5 residents who live in cities that are incorporated tend to experience better quality of life than residents who live in the unincorporated county jurisdiction. The Supervisor for District 5 should make sure that all residents have equal quality of life.

 

My campaign will focus on the following issues the Board of Supervisors should address:

 

 Limiting the influence of special interest groups and businesses in county governance.

 

Imposing Term limits for Supervisors.

 

Review the Concord Naval Housing Plan. ​Ask that the Board of Supervisors participate in the plan to build 12,000 homes for the Concord Naval Housing plan. Make sure that the housing plan requires traffic mitigation to Highway 4 and Interstate 680. Require that the developer pay into a developer fee to pay for future traffic that will affect residents along this highway corridor. Require that the project address the effects of increased future traffic.

 

Ensuring equal taxation of property across all District 5 communities.​ Certain communities are paying higher property taxes percentage for BART, EBMUD, Eastbay Regional Park, Bay Area Air Quality Management Board, County Library, County Flood Control, the County Water Agency and County Mosquito Abatement. All District 5 communities should pay equal percentages, but in our current system the percentages paid vary by community. In most cases, the communities that are paying more are under privileged communities in our district.

 

 Review the role of Proposition 172 funds to make sure all public safety agencies share in these funds.

 

Review County agencies that provide services to Contra Costa Cities.​  Make sure that county agencies are charging a fair amount to provide services.

 

Increased participation and involvement by community members. ​Increased community participation is important in making the government a more transparent and inclusive and to establish a sunshine process.

 Your vote matters and I would be honored to represent you and other residents in Contra Costa Supervisor District 5.

 

Please email me and I would be privileged to add your endorsement. Forward my website to your friends and family. www.danromero.us

 

If you believe as I do that there is a need for a change then support Dan Romero with your vote on June 7, 2016.

I am Dan Romero, Mayor of the City of Hercules. This is the second mayor ship in five years on council. I was elected five years ago as part of a recall of three members of the Hercules council due to corruption and fiscal mismanagement. I currently serve on the West County Solid Waste regional committee. I chaired the approval of a post collection recycling contract with a $120-million value. I also serve on Pinole/Hercules Wastewater committee that is authorizing a $52-million plant improvement.

Serving as your District 5 Supervisor I will bring Honor, Diligence, Quality and Integrity to residents of Contra Costa District 5.
Honor would be serving all residents in the district not just one or two cities.

Diligence would be my preparation for meetings, being on subject, asking questions and knowing the pulse of our residents.
Quality of Life for residents in District 5 should be the same whether you live in an incorporated city or a county city. County residents tend tobelievetheyarenotgettingequalrepresentation.

Integrity means being fair to all parties with contracts. Representing all residents in District 5 and saying no to special interest groups when voting on county issues.
I have lived in Contra Costa County since 1975. I am blessed to be married for 32 years and have two grown daughters. VoteforDanRomerosothatIcanrepresentallresidentsinDistrict5.

  • Making the commitment to truly represent the District by regularly participating in community and/or town hall meetings, I promise to hold a meeting in each of the incorporated and unincorporated areas and to attend city council meetings once a month
  • Solving the exploding homeless issue. Working with those members of the community who actually work on the front line to solve this problem, and work together with the goal of eliminating the issue. Affordable Housing and Tiny Homes must be looked at
  • Reversing the cuts made in last five years to fire protection. First, by reopening the closed fire stations in Martinez and Pittsburg. Then, developing a solution to expand fire protection in areas that have been under served.

I have lived in unincorporated Pacheco and Vine Hill since 1967, attended College Park High School, Diablo Valley College and UC Berkeley. I am a husband, father of two children, a homeowner and a public servant for over 25 years.

My wife, Dana, grew up in Clayton. My Parents have been in Contra Costa County for 48 years, my father is retired having worked at Concord Naval Weapons Station for over 30 years, and has been a substitute teacher for the Mt. Diablo School District. My mother is retired having been a community college instructor at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill. I have a brother who presently lives in Tokyo, Japan. My mother –in –law is presently an elementary school teacher in East County. Both of my parents have small businesses that the run during their retirement years.

I have worked for the Mt. Diablo Unified School District, Contra Costa County Office of Education, Contra Costa County Office of the Administrator, and US Government, along with several non-profit organizations that aided at-risk children, battered women, people in recovery and the homeless and that focused on health care issues. I served on the Pacheco Municipal Advisory Council for two years, appointed by then Supervisor Sunne McPeak. I was in charge of field operations in Contra Costa County, covering today’s District 5 for Census 2000, leading more than 200 employees. I am presently a Management and Program Analyst with US Department of Homeland Security, working there for over 13 years.

I have spent countless hours volunteering and working with children over the last 30 years, working with hundreds, if not thousands of middle and high school students. Presently, I volunteer weekly at Las Juntas Elementary School in Martinez. I am also president of my homeowners association.

I know and understand the rich history of Contra Costa County, and the unincorporated communities and cities of District 5.

My life experiences have afforded me the opportunity to work with a diverse collection of people; different backgrounds, ages, beliefs, political philosophies from conservative to liberal, ethnic/racial/cultural backgrounds, to find common ground, define problems, build consensus and to develop effective solutions, valuing their time and energy.

Contra Costa County faces many challenges and issues including: the homeless, pipeline and railroad safety; chronic traffic and transportation problems; fire protection; community safety pertaining to local refineries and chemical plants; and the administration of county services ranging from public health to public works. Solutions to such issues must be responsive to county residents, while maintaining a disciplined budget. We need effective county leadership to do this, especially in Supervisorial District 5; where so many of these issues are concentrated. I believe I can provide such leadership.

An example of this occured while I was a member of the Pacheco Municipal Advisory Council. I had only been on the council a few months, when the question of a housing development on the site of Pacheco Elementary School, was to be decided. The night before the Council meeting and our vote, two representatives of Braddock and Logan, the developer, showed up at my door, it was around 7 pm and for the next two hours they presented me with how they thought that the housing development should be designed, from street changes to the number of homes. Needless to say both representative left thinking that they had me in their pocket. but what a difference 24 hours make. To make this story, the Pacheco MAC, led by me, denied all of the changes that Braddock and Logan wanted. In fact we in exchange for our vote on allowing the development to continue, Braddock and Logan agreeded to build, at no cost to the county or public, the Pacheco Community Center, to pay for the development of the creekside park, and finally the removal of the historical cermanic tile mosaic on the wall of the Pacheco Elementary School Cafeteria and then to reassemble it piece by piece on the north inside wall of the Community Center, again at no cost to the county and public.

We made sure that the voice of the Community was heard, and that the Community gained something tangable in return for a developor being able to make a profit.

1.
Cost of living

Do you see the rising cost of living in Contra Costa as a problem, and if so, what solutions do you propose?

Respuesta de Conrad Dandridge:

Yes it is, and it is a complex problem, some say affordable housing is the answer, others will point at better paying jobs, still some will call for rent control. Well it is all of the above, but the unintended consquence of  this rising cost of living is homelessness. The numbers have more than quadruped since 2000. And it is not just those who substance abuse issues or the mental ill. It now includes veterans who have faithfully served there country and families with children, trying to make ends meet, all needing a break. Relief in the county ought not to be dependent upon the cities or the community non-profits. The county can commission the building of Tiny Homes on county-owned lots to aid homeless individuals. These can be clustered so that the newly housed individuals can get the assistance they need, from health care, job training, etc. To assist families who are homeless, the county can take over abandoned properties that have tax liens against them, instead of selling them, and utilize partnerships with groups such as Habitat for Humanity. Existing structures can be fixed-up, or new structures can be built. This plan has the support of Martinez Citizen of the Year Doug Stewart and it will begin to turn the tide of homelessness.

Then we must really examine the causes behind the rising cost of living, to formulate an effective and real solution to it!.
