Described as having “a head for numbers and a heart for people,” Supervisor Mike Wasserman was elected to the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors in November 2010 after serving eight years on the Los Gatos Town Council as Mayor and Councilmember. Mike has been a resident of Santa Clara County for more than 50 years. He has proven that balancing budgets and maintaining high-quality public services can be done when the focus is on the people you represent.
Over the last 30 years, Mike has owned and operated several different businesses in Santa Clara County, including a financial planning firm, a property management company, a data processing company, and a sports memorabilia store. These endeavors gave Mike valuable hands-on experience in negotiations and investments; being a commercial tenant; being a landlord, a homeowner, and a business owner; hiring and managing employees; dealing with business taxes and licenses -- all the while, allowing Mike to talk with and, most importantly, listen to the thoughts, desires and concerns of those he worked with and served.
