Message from the County Manager

Welcome to the County of San Mateo.

For residents and visitors alike, the county is a place of unique opportunity and beauty. County employees take great pride in delivering services that keep the County safe and healthy, and enable all residents to achieve their full potential.

As County Manager, my role is to implement the policies and vision of the Board of Supervisors and to ensure the County is run efficiently and effectively. The County Manager oversees County departments, coordinates the work of elected department heads, and serves as Clerk of the Board and Director of Emergency Services. My office also includes several departments and divisions equally committed to the community’s well-being, including Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Budget, Policy and Performance, the Office of Sustainability, Communications and Real Property Services.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the programs and services the County provides. Our goal is improving the quality of life for every San Mateo County resident.
