LIVE OAK, CA (MPG) - Farmer and businessman Jeff Boone will run for Supervisor in District 1, which covers all of Live Oak and a section of north Yuba City in Sutter County.

A lifelong District 1 resident, Boone, who has a background in engineering construction, will focus on quality-of-life issues, including upgrading and maintaining roadways, making meaningful improvements to the homeless crisis, and promoting economic development.  

The catalyst for Boone’s decision to run is the ongoing budget crisis. “District 1 deserves a leader who will show up,” said Boone. “The current supervisor was not present during the budget vote at the June 20, 2023, budget hearing, the most important meeting of the year.  District 1 residents deserve better representation,” said Boone. 

Among Boone’s top priorities will be attending his assigned committee meetings and elevating the voice of District 1 residents. County records indicate our current Supervisor’s attendance has been relatively poor.  “Aside from medical or family emergencies, there isn’t a good reason to miss any county meetings or committee meetings.  It silences the voice of the district,” said Boone.

Another of Mr. Boone’s priorities will be to find funding solutions to support Sutter County Fire Departments.  Boone believes strongly that law enforcement and fire professionals should pace one another in compensation, and that those salaries are grossly unbalanced.

Boone, a third-generation farmer, is the son of Keith and Dorothy Boone and is currently farming peaches and walnuts between Live Oak and Yuba City.  When he’s not farming, Jeff is an almond and walnut broker representing local farmers.  Boone is a graduate and a current fellow of the California Ag Leadership Foundation - Class 33, has served as president of the Live Oak Lions Club and served as president and member of the Live Oak Little League Board for 25 years.
