On November 8, 2016, Oscar Villegas was elected for a second term as the Yolo County Supervisor for District 1 which encompasses a majority of West Sacramento and the community of Clarksburg.
In January 2018, Supervisor Villegas assumed the role of Chair of the Board and is looking forward to a productive year by the Board and county staff as they begin to address emerging issues within the county. Some of these issues include implementation of the county cannabis program, preserving the Delta and enhanced flood protection, protection of wildlife and habitat preservation, maintain and elevate the access of a health care delivery system for those in need, provide for adequate and effective criminal justice services for both the adult and juvenile populations, develop and support efforts to address the homeless population with housing options and critical services, and ensure our waterways are clean and safe by removal of derelict and abandoned vessels in the Sacramento River.
During his tenure on the Board of Supervisors commencing in February 2014, Supervisor Villegas has served on the California State Association of Counties (CSAC)/League of California Cities Joint Homelessness Task Force, National Association of Counties (NACo) Board of Directors, Yolo Bypass Partnership, and the Yolo County Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Agricultural Labor. Most recently in 2018, Supervisor Villegas was appointed to co-chair CSAC's Housing, Land Use and Transportation Committee.
In addition, Supervisor Villegas has been instrumental in supporting the City of West Sacramento in its visionary approach to quality growth, and is supportive of the emerging wine industry in Clarksburg and ongoing preservation of agriculture and appropriate land use consistent with the Clarksburg Area General Plan.
Supervisor Villegas has demonstrated a longstanding dedication to public service. He previously served as a continuous member of the West Sacramento City Council for fourteen years (2000 - February 2014) during a time of significant growth for the City and helped to develop a smart policy and management agenda resulting in vast improvements in housing, retail, infrastructure, recreation and transportation.
