Welcome to the Executive Office web page. The Executive Office supports the Board of Supervisors in performing its duties as the governing body of the largest local government in the Nation. Each Board Office receives approximately $3.451 million dollars annually to support services in their respective districts for the betterment of their communities. As Clerk of the Board, the staff of the Executive Office prepares the Board’s weekly Agenda, and Statement of Proceedings and maintains its official records, which date back to the 1850’s, and provides continuous technology enhancement, accounting, procurement, personnel, payroll, facility management and other administrative services to the Board of Supervisors.
The Executive Office also provides a wide variety of services directly to the public and other County departments. This includes staffing various County commissions, committees and task forces; administering the Assessment Appeals Board; oversight of Conflict of Interest Codes and enforcing the Lobbyist Ordinance. The Executive Office leverages technology with e-filing of applications such as electronic board letter submissions, assessment appeals filings and conflict of interest filings. Our vision of the future is a government that is responsive to the needs of our citizenry using available technology and resources to provide services.
The Board of Supervisors has created various independent oversight bodies to closely monitor the provision of select vital government programs and services. The Executive Office has been entrusted to provide administrative and technological support to these entities, given the sensitive nature of the work involved. Among the oversight bodies are: Office of Inspector General, established to provide independent and comprehensive oversight of the Sheriff’s Department and its jail facilities; Countywide Oversight Panel on Equity, developed to support an independent countywide employment discrimination complaint process; and Office of Child Protection, created to prioritize and improve child safety through better communication, coordination, and accountability across multiple agencies.
With the establishment of term limits in March 5, 2002, the Executive Office works directly with each outgoing and incoming Supervisor to ensure a successful and smooth transition with no impact to constituent services. To date, my dedicated staff has been successful in the transition of three incoming and outgoing Board Offices.
