Welcome to the District 2 Website
Supervisors make decisions on many subjects – from the management of social programs to service decisions. They also make land use and environmental decisions that affect the quality of life of all Contra Costans.
There are many ways in which this office can serve as a bridge between you and the county government. Oftentimes, this office can assist you and your neighbors in solving a problem – or directing you to the proper person within a County department or other agencies to help you sort out an issue. This office will initiate contact within the department and track these matters until you get an answer.
The best way to get advice or assistance is to send a letter or email to the office regarding your concern. A written statement (it does not have to be fancy) is the best way to get results. Please include your name, email and mailing address and phone number so the office staff can contact you.
We look forward to hearing from you and also welcome your comments about how we can improve this web site.
