District 5 - Jim DeMartini

County Supervisor Jim DeMartini has a lifetime commitment to Stanislaus County. It is where he grew up and where he has become a regional leader. Jim graduated from Grace Davis High School and immediately began farming full time. His farming operation includes more than 1,000 acres between Ceres and Patterson. He grows almonds, walnuts, peaches, grapes, pistachios, and occasionally row crops.

Jim represents the entire cities of Newman and Patterson as well as most of Ceres. His district also includes thousands of acres in the unincorporated area of west Stanislaus County that combine with Newman and Patterson to make up "The West Side.”

Supervisor DeMartini serves on the Airport Advisory Committee, Agricultural Advisory Board, Alternate on the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Board of Directors, Central San Joaquin Valley Foreign Trade Zone Advisory Board, Economic Development Action Committee, Emergency Medical Services Board of Directors, General Plan Update Committee, Local Agency Formation Committee (LAFCO), Retirement Board, San Joaquin Valley Supervisors Board of Directors, San Joaquin Valley Supervisors Endangered Species Committee, and the Stanislaus County Disaster Council.

Jim has played a leading role on several important issues during his time in office. He has taken the lead in writing the agricultural element of the County general plan, he authored the scrap metal ordinance, and has formed a health care task force for communities on the west side to be able to work together to meet the health care needs of the communities. He has also formed a Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) in south Modesto to address community needs.

Jim is a member of the Stanislaus County Farm Bureau as well as the Ceres, Newman, and Patterson Chambers of Commerce.

Jim is married to Anne, who is also an elected official of the Yosemite Community College Board.
