Voters re-elected Phil Serna to serve a fourth term on the Sacramento County Board Supervisors in 2022. Phil grew up in Sacramento’s Curtis Park neighborhood and attended local schools. The son of Sacramento’s first Latino mayor, Joe Serna, Jr., Phil developed an appreciation for public service at a very young age. His respect for his family’s humble beginnings and their efforts working with Cesar Chavez to secure rights for farm workers also shaped Phil’s desire to serve. After completing his undergraduate studies at California State University, Sacramento, Phil earned a master’s degree in city and regional planning from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, graduating with honors in 1994. Phil met his future wife Roxanna while attending graduate school and they now live in Sacramento’s North Natomas neighborhood.

Because most of the First District overlaps with the City of Sacramento, many of the issues Phil deals with pertain to countywide services; i.e., services the County provides exclusively, separate from municipal services. These include health and social services such as mental and indigent health care, as well as protective services for children and the elderly. Phil is also focused on public safety and enhancing the environment. He routinely works to secure flood protection residents deserve, and to protect and improve the American River Parkway.
