Contra Costa County Supervisor District III

County Supervisor Mary Nejedly Piepho
Announces Retirement from the
Contra Costa Board of Supervisors

After significant and thoughtful deliberation, I have made a very difficult personal decision and decided not to pursue re-election in 2016.  At this point in my life I am ready to greet new challenges, welcome new opportunities and spend more time with my family doing things that we enjoy. 

I have served on the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors for nearly three terms and these years have been the most fulfilling of my career.   Saving lives and saving taxpayer dollars are the most rewarding achievements of my career and I have done both. 

I am honored to have earned the trust and confidence from the citizens and business leaders of this County who have supported me to make tough decisions on their behalf and together build a better Contra Costa County.

When I took office in January, 2005 I had a lot of optimism, energy and many fresh ideas.  After a lot of hard work and sacrifice, I'm proud to say my personal goals have been met; transportation, finance, public safety and the environment (a short list is detailed at the end of this message).

We have a diverse County with a lot of needs and I've done my best to work collaboratively with my colleagues and stakeholders to balance those needs.  Not only for District III but for the greater needs of all Contra Costa citizens and taxpayers.

A lot has been accomplished in a relatively short period of time, especially with consideration of the financial and social impacts from the Great Recession.

My goals could not have been achieved without my dedicated office staff, our County Administrator David Twa and all County personnel.  Much of what I've accomplished is directly attributed to these many hands involved in the heavy lifting. 

My father, the late State Senator John A. Nejedly, always said to me to make sure you leave the world better than the way you found it.  As I look back on my service to this County, I believe I've done that.  I hope the citizens of Contra Costa will agree that Contra Costa County is in a much better, more secure place now than it was 12 years ago.

A County Supervisors' job is one that is never done.  It is never completed.  And while I have listed many accomplishments below, there is always more work to do.  I look forward to a busy and productive 2016 on the Board of Supervisors and continuing to work hard serving the citizens of this great County, region and State.

For the next year I will work on the 2016 goals outlined below, and more.  Stay tuned and many thanks to everyone who has joined me for this wonderful experience.
