FLIPPABLE: Terra Lawson-Remer for San Diego County Supervisor.

Terra Lawson-Remer is a third-generation San Diegan, who served as Senior Advisor in the Obama Administration developing environmental policies to cut pollution from oil drilling and mining.

As an economist with the United Nations and World Bank, she worked around the world to create jobs, restart businesses, and generate economic activity after a crisis. As an educator and local Community College Advisory Board member, Terra teaches public policy and mentors disadvantaged students. And as a small businesswoman, Terra understands firsthand the challenges facing the business community during the COVID-19 crisis.

Terra puts public health first. She will listen to County health officials, expand coronavirus testing and contact tracing, and mount an evidence-based pandemic response. Terra is the only Supervisor candidate committed to defending the Affordable Care Act and ensuring access to healthcare for every San Diegan.

Terra has a proven track-record of environmental leadership. She will protect our open spaces from sprawl development and our communities from traffic and congestion, and implement a bold County Climate Action Plan to fight climate change and create new economic opportunities for local businesses and workers.

As a single mom, Terra knows the struggles of working parents. Terra will expand access to quality, affordable childcare and preschool education so working parents can earn a living.

Terra has a lifelong track record of bringing people together to solve problems, and will defend San Diego County from Trump Administration attacks on our civil rights, public health and quality of life.

After graduating from Yale, Terra earned a full scholarship to law and graduate school, receiving her PhD and law degree from NYU. Terra is also a certified emergency medical responder (EMT), and in her free time she takes kids on backpacking trips to teach teamwork, personal resilience, and respect for nature.

Terra lives in Encinitas with her daughter Eevkai. Terra is running for San Diego County Board of Supervisors to improve the quality of life for all San Diegans.
