Supervisor Wendy Root Askew

District 4

(831) 883-7570, (831) 755-5044


Supervisor Wendy Root Askew attended California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo to receive her bachelor's degree in business management. She also attended UC Santa Cruz’s Sierra Institute for a year in 1999. Before being elected to the Board of Supervisors, Askew was a board member for District 1 of the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District and served as a legislative analyst for Supervisor Jane Parker. After she won her supervisorial seat in November 2020, Askew told KSBW, “I’ve never been so proud to call Monterey County my home and never been so grateful to see so many neighbors fighting for shared values of clean water, safe schools, affordable housing, integrity in leadership, workers rights, and equity and opportunity for all.” She represents District 4, which includes Del Rey Oaks, Marina, Sand City, Seaside, and southwest Salinas.

Notable quote: “I’ve been really transparent and this has been a hard year for my family—one of the hardest years of my life personally. But dammit if I don’t walk away from it feeling strong and capable of whatever comes in this.” (Source: Monterey County Weekly)

District office: 2616 First Ave, Marina, CA 93933
