Pam Slater-Price



For nearly two decades, Supervisor Pam Slater-Price has taken a common-sense approach to government that has made her a force in regional politics. Slater-Price began her public service career in the late-1980s in Encinitas where she served as councilwoman and mayor. She was first elected to the San Diego County Board of Supervisors in 1992 and began her fourth term in January 2005. She is also serving as chairwoman for the third time since joining the board.
During her time on the Board of Supervisors, Slater-Price has established a reputation as an advocate for open-space preservation, economic growth, increased transportation spending, law enforcement, animal welfare, and the promotion of the arts. She is also known as a leading supporter of programs that protect the victims of domestic violence.
In addition, the supervisor has worked hard to protect quality-of-life in her district. Slater-Price helped secure over $100 million to improve Interstates 5, 805, and 15, and to build SR56. She was also behind efforts to acquire sand for North County beaches. Over the years Slater-Price has given nearly $10 million to numerous organizations and projects throughout her district that help promote families, local businesses, sports, and the arts. More recently she provided funds to two communities in her district to fight graffiti and has helped secure over $9 million for two new animal shelters.
Slater-Price has served on the board during an extremely tumultuous economic period. Yet, through her leadership, the county has earned a nationwide reputation as one of the country's best. This fact was recognized in 2002 by Governing Magazine, which commended San Diego County for its results-oriented management and fiscal responsibility.
