InfoSan Diego County Supervisor

After nearly two decades as a successful architect, Ron Roberts walked away from the private sector for the opportunity to serve the city he has called home now for more than fifty years.

In 1987, the Berkeley-educated architect decided to leave the architectural firm where he had risen to Managing Partner in order to launch a campaign for a seat on the San Diego City Council. In that, his first bid for public office, Ron was triumphant.

During his seven years on the City Council, Ron put his private sector background to good use. He led the charge to dismantle the city�s anti-business policies that had stifled economic growth. He also was instrumental in expanding the number of police officers on the streets and in creating a city/county partnership to build a new downtown jail.

By the mid-90s, Ron was ready for a change �
and a new challenge. In 1994, he was elected to represent the multi-ethnic Fourth District on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

For Ron, however, there was little time for celebration. He and his new colleagues were immediately faced with a test of the highest order � steering the County away from bankruptcy. Sadly, the previous Board of Supervisors had made a string of poor financial decisions that placed the County on the verge of fiscal collapse.
