Biography

Zack Scrivner is Kern County's Second District Supervisor, proudly serving the communities of Bakersfield, Boron, Caliente, California City, Mojave, Rosamond and Tehachapi.

Elected to the Board in 2010, Zack represents the Board of Supervisors on several commissions and boards, including Kern Council of Governments, Kern Land Agency Formation Commission (Chairman 2013 & 2017), and the Kern Economic Development Corporation.

Before his election to the Board of Supervisors, Zack served six years on the Bakersfield City Council, representing Ward 7, and was Vice-Mayor 2009-10. While on the City Council, Zack was the District Director for California State Assembly Member Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) from 2006-2010. From 2002-2006, Zack was the Field Representative for Assembly Republican Leader, and now Majority Leader in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy.

Zack's priorities are private-sector job growth, particularly in the areas of aerospace, alternative energy, mining and logistics, as well as tough fiscal management and innovation in county government. He has been an outspoken advocate for public employee pension reform in local government, and spearheaded Measure D, the successful ballot measure, approved by voters in the City of Bakersfield in 2010, which reformed the city pension system for newly-hired public safety employees. Continuing those efforts at the county level, Zack and the Board of Supervisors successfully negotiated for comprehensive pension and healthcare contribution reform with county unions in 2012.

Zack is a member of the Rotary Club of Tehachapi, and is a founding board member of the Wounded Heroes Fund of Kern County, a non-profit volunteer organization that provides support to wounded service members and their families.
