I would like to thank everyone for supporting my recent re-election as your District 5 Supervisor for another 4 years. I am excited and honored to serve the people of Placer County and I look forward to another term of making a difference in District 5 and Placer County.

As a result of re-districting in 2011, I am now proud to serve the City of Auburn and additional areas of un-incorporated North Auburn, as well as the original communities of District 5.

As your supervisor, I will continue to look for positive changes that will serve our County for years to come. We are now working toward a Regional Sewer Project, and are looking to set policies for potential Middle Fork Project revenues that should add valuable funding to Placer County in 2013 and into the future. We continue to face decisions relating to Biomass, Realignment, Redevelopment Dissolution, and the South Placer Justice Center.

As a former volunteer firefighter and the wife of a professional firefighter, I will work with all stakeholders to aggressively manage our private and public lands for reduced fire danger. As seen in the recent "Robbers Fire" we need to actively work toward fuel reduction efforts and protecting life, property, and our firefighters from the danger of fire in our heavily forested District 5 as well as the rest of Placer County.

There are 7 Municipal Advisory Councils (MAC) in District 5 that meet on a monthly basis except one that meets quarterly. These MACs are an important voice of the community which advise the Board of Supervisors. They meet in North Auburn, Foresthill, Meadow Vista, Colfax, Donner Summit, Squaw Valley, and North Tahoe. For more information and agendas please visit the District 5 Event Calendar.

Please join me as we fight to “Preserve, Protect, Restore, and Respect” Placer County.

Thank You,

Jennifer Montgomery
Supervisor, District 5

I was born in Redwood City, California in 1961. I have two brothers, one step-sister (killed serving in the first Gulf War) and two fantastic parents. I have 6 nieces and nephews whom I adore and three god-children. I am married to firefighter/ paramedic Daniel Gomez and am a 22 year resident of Donner Summit.

I attended K-12 in Redwood City and Palo Alto and received my Bachelor of Arts in 1983 from Mills College in Oakland, California.

In 1987, I returned to college in Rocklin, California at Sierra College for an AA degree in horticulture. At Sierra College I developed a love for Placer County and its agricultural heritage, a love that leads me to protect and preserve that same heritage in my role as County Supervisor.

I met my husband in 1988 when I was a volunteer for the Donner Summit Fire Department and Dan was a full-time fire fighter. In 1991 we were married at Sugar Bowl and moved to our current home in Serene Lakes.

As a Summit resident, I’ve had the opportunity to work in a number of jobs which taught me many useful skills. Most recently, I owned my own business for 8 years, before that I worked for 10 years at Sugar Bowl, worked at the Sierra Business Council in Truckee, worked as a seasonal employee for the California Department of Agriculture and held a number of other jobs including light and heavy construction.

I have a strong commitment to listening and responding to the needs of the 5th District—I believe that community service is a higher calling and am dedicated to serving my constituents to the best of my abilities. I am honored to serve the voters and residents of the 5th District and look forward to many years of service.

It is important that your voice be heard. Please contact the office at any time if you have questions, concerns, or would like to get involved with shaping your county government.

Thank you,
