Greg Ferrero brings a unique combination of professional experience, small business ownership, community involvement, and a transparent, common-sense approach to the Board of Supervisors, District 1. Greg is committed to preserving the safety and security of our community, promoting a balanced and responsible approach to growth while protecting our cherished open space, making wise fiscal decisions, and being a strong voice for El Dorado Hills at the County level.
Greg was born in northern California and graduated from Sacramento State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement Administration. He also graduated from the FBI National Academy in 2013. Greg retired from the CHP in 2015, after 28 years of exemplary service. His accomplished California Highway Patrol career included substantial outreach to residents and agencies in 10 diverse counties including El Dorado. Leading the deployment of the CHP’s newest field office in East Sacramento in 2009, he partnered with El Dorado County’s supervisors, schools, and homeowners’ groups to assess local safety needs.
As well, at the CHP, Ferrero directed threat analysis and intelligence coordination for the State of California, reporting directly to the Governor’s Homeland Security Advisor. He led the coordination of the state’s Amber Alert Program, influenced legislation to enact the Blue and Silver Alert Programs, and served on the California Child Abduction Task Force. Highly credentialed, he held a Top Secret FBI security clearance and was sworn as a Special Deputy U.S. Marshal.
Greg and his wife, Rita, have lived in El Dorado Hills since 2007. They are the proud parents of three adult children; Alexa, Victoria and Adam—all of whom attended local schools and are alumni of Oak Ridge High School.
Ferrero has been an active community volunteer in a variety of civic and youth-sports activities. He has served on the El Dorado County Department of Transportation Traffic Advisory Committee and the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce Government Relations Committee, and has coached a number of local teams in youth basketball, youth baseball and youth lacrosse. With boys team charity El Dorado Hills, Greg was a team manager and volunteered alongside his son at Upper Room in Placerville, CSD Bass Lake, Oak Ridge High School, Veterans Day parades and numerous Special Olympics events locally. Ferrero was also a volunteer firefighter
for the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District. His family was recognized as a “Family that Volunteers” in the El Dorado Hills Neighbors magazine in January, 2021.
Ferrero has been active in commerce, public-safety and civic matters on the county’s western slope for many years. Since 2013, he and his wife, Rita, have owned and operated Sierra Laundry, which today includes locations in El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park. In April, their business was recognized as Start-Up Business of the Year by the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce.
In September 2021 during the Caldor Fire, Ferrero spearheaded a donation drive to support the front-line responders of the fire. Working together with a local business in Pollock Pines, he collected items and delivered dinners twice weekly to firefighters and law enforcement personnel on the front lines. Ferrero is repeatedly awestruck by the resilience, solidarity and fellowship of this community, and is proud to be a part of it.
