Dawn Rowe, 3rd District County Supervisor

On December 14, 2021, the Board of Supervisors adopted new district boundaries as a result of population shifts from census data. While the 3rd District took on a lot of additional territory, expanding from 3,700 to nearly 10,000 square miles, Redlands will remain entirely in the district. This means Supervisor Rowe will continue to represent Redlands.
