“These are challenging times, which makes a candidate’s background more important than ever,” Roberts said. “I am running for county supervisor because I have extensive business experience, a proven track record of success, and a vision for our county over the next decade.”

Roberts stressed that he has the background necessary to create jobs and promote economic growth. He said he plans to continue the fiscal responsibility demonstrated by the Board of Supervisors, while working to enhance services to the public.

“It is important to deliver critical county services in the most cost-effective manner possible,” Roberts said. “I have the business background to do this. I am a self-starter; I worked to put myself through college and graduate school. I have started my own successful business and was part of an efficient team that helped to build SAIC into a Fortune 500 Company.”

Roberts said as supervisor it is important to him to:
1. Improve economic opportunities in San Diego County.
2. Insist on a structurally sound county budget while working to efficiently conduct county business by balancing the budget and preparing for cuts in state funding.
3. Preserve the county’s strong financial and capital management to maintain a top bond rating.
4. Enhance the quality of life of all county residents through sustainable grown, well-planned communities, environmental protection and strong public safety.
5. Improve county services and delivery to the public.

Roberts is a two-term councilmember and deputy mayor of the City of Solana Beach. He serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the San Diego County Consolidated Transportation Services Agency. A nationally-recognized expert in health care policy, he was appointed in both the Bush and the Obama Administrations to national advisory leadership roles focused on maximizing the cost-effectiveness and delivery of Medicare, Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs. In addition, he helped to create the military’s current healthcare system.

Prior to being elected to the city council, Roberts served on the Friends of the Solana Beach Library and the Solana Beach Budget and Finance Committee. He is a past chairman of the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority. With his colleagues he helped in the efforts to rebuild the park when over 60 percent was destroyed by the 2007 fires.

He has served as an alternate board member of the San Diego County Polinsky Children’s Center. The center houses abused and neglected children.
With a master’s in public administration degree in financial management, Roberts has served on the Fiscal Sustainability Subcommittee.

While on the North County Transit District Board he has “worked tirelessly to reduce fares and expand service.” The San Diego County Taxpayers Association recognized the NCTD board, of which he is a member, in 2011 with the Golden Watchdog Award for strong fiscal stewardship.”

Roberts has adopted five children from the county ranging in ages from 3 to 16. He has lived in San Diego County for nearly two decades.
