Get to Know Cindy
In April 2019, I was appointed to serve as Placer County Supervisor for District 5. With incredible support, I was elected to the seat in March 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 call home.
District 5 is by far the largest and most diverse District in Placer County. It spans from Newcastle eastward to the High Sierras, containing almost 80% of the geographic area of Placer County. Additionally, over two-thirds of the residents of District 5 live in unincorporated areas, relying on the County for their elected representation. Each of the individual communities, whether incorporated or not, has incredible natural resources, and strong, unique characteristics. Because of its tremendous size and diversity, District 5’s needs are extremely complex. Effectively representing such a large and diverse area requires tremendous commitment, energy, and an approach that starts with listening carefully to the often very divergent needs of the District 5 residents. I spend many days each week at various events, activities, and meetings all across District 5 doing just that, listening.
Throughout my professional career and volunteer efforts, and now more than ever, I see a need to work in a bilateral manner in order to achieve results. As a dedicated independent, I strive to maintain positive working relationships with elected officials from across the political spectrum, often with very different views of how issues should be addressed. I work hard to serve those I represent, and that collaboration results in tangible benefits to District 5 and Placer County generally.
“Public service is my passion. I am dedicated to creating solutions for the challenges we face together, and working collaboratively with residents and businesses throughout Placer County, District 5.”
