About Jane Parker
Jane Parker is proud to serve Monterey County as the Fourth District County Supervisor.
Her priorities as Supervisor include responsible land-use policy, equitable healthcare access and high quality healthcare services, water and mass transit solutions, increased accountability and customer service for County services, and an emphasis on preventive policy as it pertains to social and law enforcement issues.
Prior to election, Jane worked as Associate Director of the ACTION Council of Monterey County addressing unmet needs in the county and improving the quality of life for residents through the pursuit of economic and social justice. At the ACTION Council Jane worked diligently to develop affordable housing solutions, to re-design the Child Welfare System working with the County’s Department of Social and Employment Services, and to develop a strong financial base of support for Girls Incorporated of the Central Coast.
Before joining the ACTION Council, Jane served for over 5 years as Vice President of Development for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, the largest Planned Parenthood in the country, raising over $5 million annually to support essential family, health, reproductive education counseling and medical services.
Prior to her time at Planned Parenthood, Jane founded and managed a healthy meal preparation service designed to serve working families and homebound seniors. As a former local small business owner, Jane understands the importance of neighborhood-serving businesses.
Jane was elected to serve on the Monterey Peninsula College Board of Trustees from 1999-2003 where she proved to be an effective advocate for quality education — fighting unfair education cuts proposed by Sacramento, and leading efforts to attract and retain quality faculty and teaching staff. Under her watch, MPC continued to provide outstanding, affordable education protecting student services despite the state budget crisis. As Chair, Jane brought more responsible and accountable leadership to the Board of Trustees.
Jane has also served as President of the Charitable Council of Monterey; Volunteer Director for the Carmel Bach Festival; Board President of the Unitarian Universalist Church; on the Executive Committee of the Democratic Club of the Monterey Peninsula, and on the Monterey Peninsula College Foundation Board of Trustees. She organized county-wide community engagement summits in 1997 and 2007, and served on the Monterey County Social Services Commission from 1994-2000 – presiding as chair for two years.
A product of Monterey public schools, Jane inherited a love of education from her father, Brad, who was the education beat reporter for the Monterey Herald. Jane’s mother, Polly, was a local community activist and writer who inspired Jane to public service.
