Tom Patti was raised in the San Joaquin Valley, ran a successful local business, and was elected to the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors in 2016 by an overwhelming margin.
His parents moved west from the east coast to achieve the American Dream—the California Dream. Tom graduated from Stagg High School and attended Delta College. Now he is raising his daughter in the same community where he grew up.
As a local business owner, County Supervisor, community volunteer, and parent, Tom has worked to make neighborhoods safer, demanded real action to reduce homelessness, and advocated for improving the quality, accessibility, and availability of local healthcare. He has also worked hard to support veterans, improve and fund our community colleges, support water for our farmers, and created more job opportunities.
Tom Patti will bring that same community-first record of delivering results as a Member of Congress representing the San Joaquin Valley and our Delta region.
As a local business owner, Tom recognizes that workers and small businesses are our community’s job creators and innovators—they are the engine that drives society. He is a member of the National Federation of Independent Business Owners. In addition, he served for 8 years on the Board of Directors of the San Joaquin Builder’s Exchange, which recently launched a new statewide job information network. Tom’s vision is smart economic growth with an eye on the future of self-sustaining, energy-efficient communities.
Supervisor Tom Patti is an active volunteer donating resources and helping raise funds for several organizations and nonprofits in our community. His prior community involvement includes serving on the Board of Directors for the Child Abuse Prevention Council, March of Dimes, and the Delta College Foundation. He also was appointed by the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors to the Equal Employment Opportunity Advisory Committee and has served as the Chair.
