Supporting & Protecting The Communities Of District

“Since 1983, I have been very fortunate to have lived, worked, recreated, and raised my family in Eastern Placer County. I have had the opportunity to work with residents and officials throughout the County in a variety of volunteer and professional capacities. Our District 5 is by far the largest and most diverse District in the County. District 5 is blessed with strong communities and amazing natural resources. It is a great honor to work for residents and businesses spanning from Newcastle to Tahoe to address the unique challenges we face.”

About Cindy Gustafson

Mission & Values

In April 2019, I was appointed to serve as your Placer County Supervisor, District 5. I was then elected to the seat in March of 2020. I feel very fortunate to live, work and serve in Placer County. For more than 40 years, it’s the place I’ve raised my family and feel lucky to call home.

District 5 is the largest and most diverse District in the County, spanning from Newcastle eastward to the High Sierras. All of our communities have incredible natural resources, and strong, identifiable communities. Our District’s needs are complex and require a collaborative approach. This is why I have remained registered as No Party Preference. Throughout my career and now more than ever, I see a need to work in a bipartisan way that allows me to truly be a problem solver. I have maintained positive working relationships with elected officials from both political parties in order to best serve local needs. It is an honor to work on behalf of our residents to address our challenges.
