Keith Carson

Alameda County Supervisor for District 5

The Fifth District includes the cities of Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Piedmont, and West Oakland, North Oakland, Rockridge, Grand Lake, and portions of the Fruitvale, Manzanita and Dimond District neighborhoods.

Welcome

Alameda County District 5 is a vibrant community comprised of diverse cultures and ethnicities. There are constant events, issues and activities that are taking place within the District at any moment in time.

As your County Supervisor:

  1. I hope to make it easier for the residents to learn more about the District and other County Services;
  2. I will keep the residents of District 5 more informed about relevant issues – political, economic, and social – that impact the residents of our District; and
  3. I want to hear your ideas about what is working and what you think would make our communities better.

I will continue to work to bring together people who have a wealth of talent and creative resources to address our shared problems in our communities including access to health care, ending poverty, homelessness, crime, improving business retention, and employment.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any issues, ideas and concerns you want to share with me.
