Welcome to the website for John Williams as Public Administrator. I’m proud to have served the people of Orange County for nine years as Orange County’s third elected public administrator since 1968.

I retired last January after 38 years of public service: Public Administrator, Public Guardian, Marshal’s Department (now Sheriff’s Department) Sergeant, College trustee, and Probation Department counselor. Just a few short months ago, I was called upon by community members to return to the South Orange County Community College District Board of Trustees where I previously served for 18 years.

During my tenure as your Public Administrator, I was proud to be endorsed by the Orange County District Attorney, members of the Board of Supervisors, members of the California Assembly and Senate, local elected officials, business leaders, police and fire safety personnel, and teachers.

In September 2009, the Orange County Grand Jury praised the Public Administrator - Public Guardian department for maintaining the highest quality administrative, managerial, budget and personnel practices and fighting elder abuse, disregarding previous inaccurate and flawed reports from that office. This included a formal apology to me for those previous unsound reports.

Keep informed by reading the candidates’ statements in the Orange County Voter Information Guide before casting your vote.

John S. Williams
Orange County Public Administrator - Public Guardian, Retired
