District 1 Supervisor John M. Gioia

Welcome From John

Welcome to our website. Growing up in West County, it’s a great honor to represent our diverse community. I’m committed to values of equity, justice and inclusion. I’ve worked hard alongside many others to fight for access to quality healthcare, environmental justice, expanded opportunities for youth, a healthier environment, affordable housing, and a safer community. Your ideas make us stronger and I want to hear them.

District One includes the cities of Richmond, San Pablo, El Cerrito, part of Pinole, and the unincorporated communities of Bayview, East Richmond Heights, El Sobrante, Kensington, Montalvin Manor, Tara Hills, North Richmond, and Rollingwood. (District Map (PDF))
