Dear Residents of District 3, 

I am deeply humbled and honored to serve as your representative on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. As a lifelong resident of District 3 and a fifth generation Sacramentan, I am passionate about our community.  District 3 is unique because it is composed primarily of urban unincorporated areas. As a result, we rely heavily on the County to provide municipal services. District 3 is also one of the most diverse supervisorial districts in California, and it will take our collective efforts to address the complex challenges we face. Please consider applying to serve on a ​Board or Commission or volunteer at one of the nonprofit organizations working to improve our community. 

I hope you will not hesitate to call my office or email me to share your views, concerns, and ideas. I also encourage you to sign up for ​ E-mail Updates and my monthly newsletter to receive the latest news about services and programs provided by Sacramento County. If you need information about services or would like to report a neighborhood nuisance issue, call 311 (or 875-4311) or report online. I look forward to working with you to make District 3 and Sacramento County a better place to live, work, and play.​

Thank you,

Rich Desmond
