Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty

Scott Haggerty was first elected to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors in November of 1996. Supervisor Haggerty, currently serving his fifth four-year term on the Board, was elected by his fellow Board members to also serve as Board President for 2015 and 2016. Supervisor Haggerty’s district includes the cities of Livermore, Dublin, most of Fremont and unincorporated areas of Eastern Alameda County.

Supervisor Haggerty has taken a leading role in improving transportation throughout the region. He is currently working to ensure the BART extension to Livermore is completed, and also plays a key role in the ongoing effort to extend BART to San Jose. With regional transportation and infrastructure issues a priority, Supervisor Haggerty is active on a number of boards and commissions and has extensive experience in this, and other, policy areas. At the national level, he represents Alameda County at the National Association of Counties, where he previously served as Chairman of the Transportation Steering Committee.

In addition to his leadership in the transportation arena, Supervisor Haggerty places a strong priority in the fields of public safety, regional air quality and health, social and human services. Appointed by then-Governor Pete Wilson, Supervisor Haggerty formerly served on the California State Seismic Safety Commission. He serves on the board of the East Bay Regional Communications System Authority. He is a member of the Alameda County Collaborating Agencies Responding to Disasters Board of Directors, formerly chaired the Alameda County Board of Supervisors Public Protection Committee and has been very active on paramedic and trauma issues. As a proud American, and family man with his daughter currently serving in the United States Navy, Supervisor Haggerty is a stern advocate for veterans’ affairs and improving the lives of those who have served, and are currently serving.

Supervisor Haggerty serves as a stern voice of reason in hot topic regional debates and is just as passionate about improving the lives and well-being of all Alameda County residents now as he was when elected to office 20 years ago.
