Dear Neighbors and District 2 Residents of Calaveras County:

    Jack Garamendi
District 2 Supervisor

 (209) 336-6004

I am honored to be your representative on the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors and I am proud to announce that I will be running for re-election to the Board of Supervisors in 2020.

Our district includes the communities of Calaveritas,
Glencoe, Mokelumne Hill, Mountain Ranch, Paloma, Rail
Road Flat, Sheep Ranch, West Point, Wilseyville, as well
as parts of San Andreas.   

As Supervisor, I have worked hard for all the different communities of our district. I have gotten to know many of you and we have worked together to address the variety of issues facing our county. The towns in District 2 all have unique characteristics and characters, but we share many common values and goals. We share a desire to make our communities stronger, healthier, happier and more secure. We want to maintain our rural character and independence, but recognize that none of the challenges we face as a community can be overcome alone.
The Butte Fire is still very raw in our memories and our communities are still struggling to recover. We have learned together that our recovery will take time, as we rebuild homes, work to prevent future fires and rebuild our infrastructure. Rebuilding is happening in a way that will make our communities stronger and more resilient. It has taken steadfast determination to reach our goals, but together, we are getting it done. I am committed to our community and will fight with all my energy to advocate on our behalf.

I am a fifth generation resident of Calaveras County, where my family settled over 150 years ago and began mining and raising cattle around Mokelumne Hill. I currently live with my wife of 24 years and our two sons in Paloma where we ranch and run a small business. I have a diverse professional background having served as an Officer in the US Army Reserve, a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay and worked for the University of California where I began as a student at UC Berkeley and eventually became the Founding Vice Chancellor of UC Merced. 

My work experience and my first term as Supervisor has allowed me to negotiate with varied stakeholders, include the community in decision making, encourage economic development, and plan for the long term impact of current choices. I will use my personal commitment and varied experience to effectively represent District 2 to both the County and State.
I welcome your input and advice. If you would like me to meet with your community, neighborhood group or group of friends, please let me know and I will attend. I will keep this website up to date or you can follow me on Facebook, email me at jackgaramendi@gmail.com or call me at (209) 336-6004.
Thank you for your support and friendship and I am proud to represent District 2 on the Board of Supervisors and serve our community.

John “Jack” Garamendi, Jr.
