About Nate:

Nate Miley was first elected to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors in November 2000 and is currently serving his sixth term. He represents District 4, which includes portions of Oakland, from Montclair in the north to Oracle Arena and the Oakland Coliseum in the south, the City of Pleasanton and the unincorporated communities of Ashland, Castro Valley, Cherryland, El Portal Ridge, Fairmont Terrace, Fairview and Hillcrest Knolls. In January 2021, he was appointed Vice-President by his colleagues on the Board of Supervisors.

Prior to representing District 4, he had the honor of serving the residents of Oakland City Council District 6 where he earned the moniker "maverick" for his tenacity in challenging the status quo and pursuing novel, grassroots-based solutions which leveraged community engagement to tackle issues and problems. As a County Supervisor, he continues to engage and empower communities, protect open space, strengthen our healthcare system, and create more livable and safe neighborhoods. He brings with him a commitment and platform to deliver and improve transportation, healthcare, public safety, and social services to his highly diverse constituent base.

Prior to public service, Nate graduated from Franklin & Marshall College and finished Law School at the University of Maryland in 1976. He then moved to Oakland to work as a Jesuit volunteer. He began his community involvement with the Oakland Community Organizations (OCO) and since then, has worked with many community-based groups as well as trained community organizers through the National Center for Urban Ethnic Affairs.

In 1986, Nate discovered his passion - advocating for older adults who do not often have a voice - and founded the United Seniors of Oakland and Alameda County (USOAC). USOAC empowers older adults to improve their quality of life. Nate has served USOAC for more than 35 years and was elected President of the Board in November 2010.

Nate is a proud father of two children and three grandchildren and has lived in Oakland for over 30 years. Nate has dedicated his entire adult life to community and public service.

Currently, Nate serves on the following Board of Supervisors Committees:

In addition, he is a member of the following regional bodies, commissions, and organizations:
