District 4 Supervisor Karen Mitchoff
Hello and welcome to the District IV website! As your County Supervisor, I was elected to serve the diverse communities of Clayton, Concord, Pleasant Hill, part of Walnut Creek, and the unincorporated Contra Costa Centre.
District IV is located in the beating heart of Contra Costa County. We have seen great transformation in our communities in a few short years, as innovation, prosperity, and new residents join us in the shadow of Mt. Diablo. Mindful of these developments, it is my core focus to build policies that best serve you, my constituents in District IV, and our neighbors across Contra Costa.
I am committed to better connecting the people of Contra Costa County with the vital services of government, and advocating for policies that will help our communities grow and prosper.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Idle Free Pledge
The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is the first local government in the Bay Area to go idle free. On April 25, in conjunction with Earth Day, each member of the Board of Supervisors took the Idle Free Pledge. I'm proud to have led this effort with my colleagues!
Transportation from vehicles is one of the largest sources of air pollution in Contra Costa County, representing 47 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions in 2013. These emissions have negative impacts on our health, including aggregated asthma, coughing or difficult breathing, decreased lung function, cardiovascular problems, and bronchitis. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that idling in personal vehicles wastes about three billion gallons of fuel annually.
