Welcome to RickFarinelli.com


I am Rick Farinelli, Supervisor for Madera County's 3rd District. I am passionate about Madera. I am dedicated to fiscally responsible county government, effective programs for our community, and a better future for our kids through good education, safe streets, and high-value jobs.

This site is a resource not only for third district residents, but for anyone interested in learning more about local events and news, as well as updates from my office and the Madera County Board of Supervisors.

You can also sign up for "From Rick's Desk" - my personal newsletter that keeps you up to date with what is going on in Madera. You'll find articles, alerts, and other important information so that you can keep your finger on the pulse of what's going on in your county government.
