Previous District 5 Supervisors
Efren Carrillo, 2008-2016
Efren Carrillo served on the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors from 2008 to 2016. Carrillo represented the 5th District, encompassing western Sonoma County.
Following graduation from UC Berkeley in 2003 (with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Economics and Policy) and internships with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on projects related to water economics and public health, Carrillo held key positions with the Sonoma County Economic Development Board, Sonoma County Business Environmental Alliance, Office of Assemblyman Joe Nation, and Redwood Credit Union.
Supervisor Carrillo spearheaded efforts to align the needs of Sonoma County employers with the workforce training provided to our students. In early 2013, the Board of Supervisors established a groundbreaking partnership with Sonoma County Office of Education and private donors to launch the Career Technical Educational (CTE) training effort with a CTE fund established at Community Foundation Sonoma County. This targeted effort built on the County’s Cradle to Career and Upstream Investment programs which invested in early education and intervention programs that have proven success rates and return on investment.
