Biography/Administrative History

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.
