What county supervisors do

5th District

As we are now fully in 2020, I thought this would be a great time to talk about the current status of San Diego County.

One of the questions I get asked most when I’m out is, what does a supervisor supervise? Well, there are five San Diego County supervisors, and we are in charge of a variety of things from public health, food stamps, Registrar of Voters and many other items. We also manage state and federal money for local programs.

I have the privilege of not only representing the cities of Carlsbad, San Marcos, Oceanside, Vista as their representative on the board of supervisors, but I also serve as the government representative for a lot of the unincorporated areas.

The unincorporated areas don’t have a city council and they don’t have a mayor, so I am their government official. Some of the District 5 unincorporated areas are Borrego Springs, Fallbrook, Fairbanks Ranch, Palomar Mountain, Rainbow, Ranchita, Rancho Santa Fe, Valley Center and Warner Springs. The county is in charge of the roads and highways, so if you have a problem, reach out to my office.

We have many new projects coming to the unincorporated area including adding new sidewalks in Borrego Springs, working with the community on an evacuation plan in Valley Center and creating a community-driven plan for the Fallbrook Village area and form-based code regulations.

I’m excited to see all this transpire as we move ahead in 2020 and hope to see out in the community.
