Supervisor, Butte County Board of Supervisors, District 3
Tami Ritter serves as a Butte County supervisor for District 3. She formerly served on the Chico City Council from 2012 – 2016.
As a professional mediator, Tami has worked extensively with families and nonprofits, helping to resolve conflict, to connect people with available community resources, and to address structural inequities.
Tami holds two master’s degrees: one in developmental psychology and another in restorative justice. She is the founding executive director of the Torres Community Shelter and the former director of Glenn County Superior Court Family Court Services and has more than twenty 20 years’ experience in social services. Tami is a trainer for the International Institute for Restorative Practices and for Nurtured Heart Approach.
She is invested in seeing Butte County develop in a thoughtful and strategic manner in which we protect our natural environment, address the high incidence of Adverse Childhood Experiences, and ensure the well-being of future Butte County residents.
As a county supervisor, she continues to embrace the same fiscally prudent values: to work diligently to protect the North State’s water interests and our valuable agricultural land; to increase collaboration between county and city governments in order to address our housing crisis, mental health service gaps, emergency preparedness; and to support responsible and sustainable development.
