Devin Believes in Action.
Here for Results.

We currently stand at a critical, momentous point in our history, one in which we are fighting for the very survival of our democracy and the soul of our nation. Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. That’s why it’s important — now more than ever –  that we hold a strong, united front as we combat the attacks on our democracy and our ballots. 


Representation and civic engagement do not start and end on Election Day. As an elected official and civic technologist, I understand first-hand the experiences of our communities across this nation and what’s at stake if we do not have the tools, resources, and energy to make our voice center in our future. 


What’s more, Contra Costa County deserves a Clerk-Recorder who will lead with empathy, integrity, and passion in serving the people who utilize the services of the office. As Clerk-Recorder, I will center the working people in our county so that no one is turned away or dismissed in the Clerk-Recorder’s office.

As Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder, I will:

Expand and protect the right to vote

by implementing new federal and state laws as they are signed into law

Improve voter outreach and community engagement

by working with neighborhood associations, local clerks, community-based organizations, and school administrators to coordinate voter education efforts

Lead with empathy

in delivering the essential services of the Clerk-Recorder’s office

Prioritize the security and integrity of our elections

by modernizing our assets and implementing important technological improvements

Create a more efficient and sustainable office

for all Contra Costa residents and visitors

The time has come for a people-centered approach embodied in every aspect of your local government. As your next Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder, I will make sure that civic education and engagement, along with accessibility is at the core of the office.

Join me as we embark on a campaign that is rooted in transparency, engagement, accountability, empathy, growing a more representative democracy, and ensuring our elections are safe, secure, and accessible.

This is about bringing YOU to the table.

Let’s build our inclusive democracy and people-centered government together.

Devin's Priorities

Transparency & Community Engagement

“Contra Costa County residents deserve to know what’s going on in the Clerk-Recorder’s office and in our county government. I will prioritize having accessible avenues and platforms for residents to know the happenings of the office and can provide their own ongoing feedback and input to the Clerk-Recorder Office. I will also ensure all public documents are readily available on the County’s website and make sure they are easily accessible.” – Devin

Increase Access to the Ballot Box & Fight Back Against ANY and ALL Attacks on Our Voting Rights

“We must continue to expand opportunities for our neighbors at the ballot box, protect those most vulnerable to barriers blocking them from casting their ballot, and increase transparency of our elections. I am committed to using best practices and modernized technology for election administration. I will also build coalitions and fight back against the continued attack on our voting rights statewide and nationally.” – Devin

Fiscal Stewardship & Participatory Budgeting

“Ensuring financial sustainability and safeguarding our assets must be a priority for the Clerk-Recorder’s office. I will make it a top priority to promote operational efficiency, encourage public participation, and develop and implement a more stringent, thorough, and inclusive process for the department’s nearly $30 million budget.” – Devin

Transformative Civic Education

“We must educate our neighbors – especially our youth – where they are. I will prioritize creating on-the-ground efforts to promote civic education through my Civic Education Corps – focused on mobilizing and engaging Contra Costa County residents around the issues that impact them and how they are connected to their local government.” – Devin

Building a Sustainable Clerk-Recorder’s Office

Contra Costa County needs a jumpstart to a green economy, and it is critical that every county department play its role in uplifting policies that create job growth and sustainability. I will prioritize the acceleration of solar installation on all Clerk-Recorder buildings and assets, establish energy-efficient, zero-emission fleet management and operation practices, and support installation of EV charging stations and bicycle rack infrastructure at the Clerk-Recorder’s office.
