John Vasquez - Supervisor District 4

Supervisor John M. Vasquez was elected to serve as Supervisor for the 4th District in November 2002.  The district he represents covers the cities of Vacaville and Dixon and the Northern part of Solano containing some of the riches farmland in the State.

John graduated from Vacaville High School.  As a youth, he worked on the family farm.  John gained much of his practical knowledge through real-life experiences; learning from his peers as a retail clerk, as a laborer on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, as a business owner and from fellow community leaders.  In addition, John served with the California and Alaska Army National Guard from 1970 to 1976.

John has spent his lifetime as a community servant, both publicly and privately, serving as the youngest Vacaville City Councilman, as Administrative Assistant to former Supervisor Bill Carroll and as Trustee of the Vacaville/Elmira Cemetery District for 17 years.  In his twelve years on the Board of Supervisors John has been selected by his fellow board members to serve as the chair three times.

Of major importance to John is the preservation of agriculture, water, public safety, transportation, veterans, seniors, economic development and the impact of poverty throughout Solano County.  John’s actions have demonstrated that a prudent, effective fiscally responsible county government can continue to invest in its future.

John is married to the former Shelli Huffman and is the father of three daughters and one son.  Shelli and John are the grandparents to two grandchildren.  John has been a regional, state and national elected leader on the issue of childhood obesity and agrees with this quote from the Great Depression - “The future strength of our nation is dependent upon the health of our children”.
