Welcome to The Third District

The Third District is home to some of San Bernardino County’s most interesting and diverse communities. The vast region stretches from the San Bernardino valley all the way to the Morongo Basin, from the mountain to the Mojave Desert. The Third District is comprised of 11 cities, 25+ unincorporated communities, and two MACs. Each offers a rich opportunity for exploration and entertainment.
Supervisor James Ramos is proud to serve his home district for the last 8 years. Since 2012, Supervisor Ramos has targeted a wide range of issues to improve the region’s quality of life, including arts, environmental justice, homelessness, and access to healthcare.
