Candidate Recruitment and Elections News

Government Advisory Bodies

Are you considering a run for local office but wonder where to start getting up to speed on the issues?  Or, are you someone who just wants to make a difference in your community?  Consider serving on a local Board or Commission.  The County of Santa Cruz and each incorporated city in the county have a number of opportunities. 

Santa Cruz County has over 40 advisory bodies which advise the Board of Supervisors on a wide arrange of issues--everything from Ag policy to Parks and Recreation, to Senior Services.  Some appointments are at-large, meaning that any Supervisor can nominate an appointee.  Others are district appointments, where a Supervisor nominates an appointee, usually a resident of his/her district.

Here is a link to the Commissions, Committees and Advisory Bodies Vacancies Page

Here is the list of all County Boards and Commissions along with Application

The County of Santa Cruz encourages applicants to apply for positions, even though there isn't a vacancy on the commission of their choice.

Each city in the county also has their own advisory bodies.  You usually must be a registered voter in the city to qualify for these Boards:
