Mike Nevin, Former County Supervisor, Has Died

Nevin reportedly died of cancer.

Mike Nevin, former San Mateo County Supervisor, died on Saturday, Dec. 1 from cancer.

Nevin was 69 years old.

The Daily Journal reports that Nevin is survived by his wife, Kathleen, and children Mike Jr., Michelle and Tim.

California State Assemblyman Rich Gordon (D-Menlo Park), upon learning of Nevin's death, issued the following statement:

“Mike Nevin dedicated a lifetime to public service.  Whether as a beat cop in San Francisco, an inspector for the SFPD, a two-time Mayor of Daly City, a twelve-year member of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, or as the Executive Director of the Service League; Mike focused squarely on the needs of our most vulnerable residents.  His legacy in San Mateo County was long-ago cemented in his many years as leader in transportation issues, as well as a passionate advocate for the physically challenged. His faith and his family always guided him, and as his colleague for many years, I appreciated his energy and valued his commitment. My sympathies go out to his wife, Kathy, and their three children.”

After 12 years on the County Board of Supervisors, Nevin took the helm of the Service League of San Mateo County, which provides services to county jail inmates, the Daily Journal reports.

Services have not yet been announced.
