CONCORD, CA – Today, Concord City Councilmember Carlyn Obringer announced her campaign for Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, running for the open District 4 office. In her launch statement, Carlyn Obringer stated, “As we emerge from the pandemic, Contra Costa County faces important decisions about our future. The pandemic drove home for me the importance of our social safety net. Concord, Clayton, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek need strong partnerships with their County Supervisor to successfully address public health and social services challenges. I stand ready to be that partner.”
Carlyn Obringer has worked at both the local and regional levels to address some of our County’s biggest challenges. As a Councilmember, Obringer has secured funds to repair and improve the quality of our roads, supported small businesses by creating the City of Concord Small Business Rent Relief Program, expanded services to support our most vulnerable neighbors, approved more housing at all affordability levels, delivered cleaner parks and balanced budgets, and protected our community’s vision for the former Concord Naval Weapons Station.
At the same time, Carlyn has worked at a regional level, as a member of the Diablo Valley Tech Initiative, the East Bay Economic Development Alliance, the East Bay Regional Parks District Parks Advisory Committee, and TRANSPAC to foster our tech sector, create a roadmap for economic success, grow and maintain our beloved regional parks system, and improve our transportation network.
Carlyn Obringer stated, “My priorities on the Board of Supervisors will build upon what I have prioritized on the Concord City Council: ensuring that our county government fixes our roads, expands access to affordable health care, creates opportunities for more supportive housing, protects our community, and nurtures the local economy to ensure all residents can live and work here.”
