District 5

John Fenley

Elected County Supervisor, District 5

I was born in Los Gatos, California and raised there by my grandparents. 18 years ago I had the opportunity to retire as the telecommunications manager from California Portland Cement in Southern California. Previously to telecom I started and ran my own custom picture framing shop for 9 years. 

I am married to José Acosta, my partner for over 18 years. We bought a sixty acre homestead between Hayfork and Hyampom back in 2004 and have been enjoying the beautiful rural lifestyle that Trinity County has to offer. 

My goals as Supervisor for District 5 are to maintain and hopefully improve essential services through these trying economic times, reduce the county debt, promote what District 5, and Trinity County have to offer, and work together to make Trinity County a better place to live. 

I know that County government can respond to the needs of its citizens. Citizens working together with local government will make a huge difference. 

Trinity County is a wonderful place to live, even with the challenges we face over the next decade. As your supervisor, I’m asking for your help to guide Trinity County through the difficult times ahead.
