A Letter from Wendy

My Monterey County roots run deep. I’m proud to be raising my family here while already doing the work to deliver results for every community I’ve represented for a decade – Sand City, Del Rey Oaks, Marina, East Garrison, CSUMB, Salinas, Seaside, and Ft. Ord.


As top aide to Supervisor Jane Parker and your current MPUSD Trustee, I wake up every day thinking about the future of our County, and what it will look like for families, including my fourth-generation young son.


Our district – our communities – deserve a Supervisor that knows how our County works and is laser-focused on keeping our communities safe, spurring living-wage job creation, and addressing the housing needs of current residents and future generations.


We must continue this work, together. Our District deserves a Supervisor who is ready to hit the ground running, knows every corner of our communities and has the experience to continue getting results for our families, seniors, veterans and youth.


Join me.
