Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This is a collection of the former Contra Costa County Supervisor, Nancy Fahden, which includes correspondence, meeting agendas, and reports and studies on many issues including landfill, Naval Weapons Station, and hospital closures.
In 1976, Nancy Fahden was the first woman to be elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors. She served 16 years. She was active in controlling refinery pollution, opposed the March Canyon landfill east of Mount Diablo in favor of the Keller Canyon Landfill in Pittsburg, and opposed the annexation of the Franklin Canyon area by Hercules. During her tenure, the waterfront in Martinez became an East Bay Regional Park.
