She also serves as Vice Chair, of NACo International Economic Development Task Force and California State Association of Counties Government Finance and Administration Policy Committee.

Diane’s priorities are to actively represent all parts of the District; ensure fiscal accountability and transparency; provide public safety and needed services for our most vulnerable in East County; protect and conserve our natural resources including our precious Delta; promote economic development and job creation for East County residents; and find solutions to reduce traffic and congestion to improve the quality of life for the residents she serves.

Prior to being elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors in 2016, Diane served as a trustee on the East Bay Regional Parks District Board, a member of the Oakley City Council, and as the Executive Director of Friends of the Marsh Creek Watershed.

Diane is a single mother and proud grandmother of one, with another on the way. She raised her three sons in Oakley, and has called Contra Costa County home for most of her life.
