A Letter from Wendy

As a fourth-generation county resident, my local roots run deep. I care passionately about this unique area and am proud to be raising my family here while working to deliver results for the communities of Sand City, Del Rey Oaks, Marina, East Garrison, CSUMB, Salinas, Seaside, and Ft. Ord.


As top aide to Supervisor Jane Parker, a current School Board Trustee, and mother of a young son, I wake up every day thinking about the future of our county.


Our district and our communities deserve a supervisor with deep experience working on countywide issues and a commitment to principled, transparent leadership.


As your supervisor, I will be laser-focused on keeping our communities safe, spurring living-wage job creation, and addressing the housing needs of current and future residents.


I am ready to hit the ground running to continue getting results for our families, seniors, veterans and youth.


Please join me!
