About Supervisor Scott Haggerty

Scott Haggerty was first elected to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors in November of 1996. He is currently serving a sixth four-year term on the Board. Haggerty's district includes the cities of Livermore, Dublin, most of the city of Fremont and unincorporated areas of East Alameda County.

The nine-county Bay Area region's traffic accounts for about 80 percent of all the congestion in Northern California. With only 20 percent of the region's population, 40 percent of that congestion occurs within Alameda County. Supervisor Haggerty has taken a leading role in improving transportation throughout the region. With traffic traveling through Alameda County projected to double by 2030, his goals include making long-needed improvements in major travel corridors including I-580 in the Tri-Valley, one of the most congested roads in the Bay Area; and expanding and enhancing transit service. Scott is currently working to ensure the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) extension to Livermore is completed, and also has a key role in an ongoing effort to extend BART to San Jose.

With regional transportation and infrastructure issues a priority, Supervisor Haggerty is active on a number of boards and commissions and has extensive experience in this policy area.
