Biography

Kathy Miller was elected to the Board of Supervisors in June 2014, sworn in on January 5, 2015, and served as Board Chair in 2015.

She currently represents San Joaquin County in many capacities, including as a member of the San Joaquin General Hospital Health Care Services Review project, Hospital Joint Conference Committee, and Medical Executive Committee. In addition, she represents the County as a Trustee of the San Joaquin County Employees Retirement Association. She serves as Chair of the San Joaquin Council of Governments.

Kathy continues her leadership on regional water issues, serving on the Five Delta Counties Coalition, and Chair of San Joaquin Delta Coalition, the San Joaquin Area Flood Control Agency and the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy.

For more than two years, Supervisor Miller has led two, countywide task forces for the Board – the Homelessness Task Force and the Children & Youth Task Force – which include representatives from service providers, county departments and each of the cities.

Prior to her election to the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Miller served on the Stockton City Council, 2009 – 2014, with four of those years as Vice Mayor, and emerged as a strong voice for fiscal responsibility and open, transparent and accountable local government.

During her nine years as an elected official, Miller has also represented Stockton residents on the Delta Protection Commission, Stockton Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and the Library & Literacy Foundation of San Joaquin. In addition, she has held leadership positions on the Northeastern San Joaquin County Groundwater Banking Authority and rose to the rank of Second Vice President of the state-wide League of California Cities.

After growing up in Southern California, Kathy and her family moved to Stockton in 1997, after living in the Seattle area for almost 20 years.  Once in Stockton, Kathy established and operated her own interior design business, Bonniebrook Interiors, and volunteered with First Night Stockton, the San Joaquin Aids Foundation and as a cuddler in the neonatal intensive care nursery of San Joaquin County General Hospital.  In 2004, Kathy became the Executive Director of the Downtown Stockton Alliance, providing security, maintenance, economic development, special events and advocacy to the downtown business and property owners until her election to the Stockton City Council in 2008.  Kathy and her husband, Karl, have been married 40 years, have three grown children and three grandchildren.
