Meet Manu Koenig
Residence: Live Oak.
Occupation: Koenig is the incumbent District 1 county supervisor.
Experience: Koenig was elected District 1 Santa Cruz County supervisor in 2020. Koenig serves on the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission and is a Policy Board member of the Housing for Health Partnership. The partnership guides homeless services policies in Santa Cruz County.
Koenig worked with Greenway, an advocacy group that promoted Measure D in 2022. It would have changed the County of Santa Cruz’s General Plan to promote Greenway’s vision for a trail: two lanes of bike traffic, a divider and a walkway on the Santa Cruz Branch Rail line. Measure D failed with about 27% of the vote.
