Your Vote Matters

Yolo County is my home. I am a graduate of UC Davis and have lived here all of my adult life. This is where I decided to start my farming operation, Chamberlain Farms, and create my business, Windmill Feed. This is also where I’ve had the pleasure to serve you on the Yolo County Board of Supervisors since 2005.  I look forward to serving you as your 5th District Supervisor for the next four years. Together, we make a difference.
