My Top 3 Priorities

  • I want Calaveras County to become an asset to California. One way is to make it easier for new businesses to get started, and for existing business to survive.
  • The health, safety and well-being of all of our families must be taken into consideration when looking at affordable housing, finding solutions for our growing homeless population, deciding on types of business and services to provide.
  • Our libraries are vital to our residents and we must protect our library system. We should also make access to the arts available to children and adults alike.



Profession:Retired Business Consultant
Commissioner, Commission on Aging — Appointed position (2012–2016)


Diablo Valley College and California State College, San Francisco Associate of Arts Degree, Business and finance. (1968)


Sharon Romano is a native Californian who grew up in a rural community. She attended Diablo Valley College, and San Francisco State University, where she majored in accounting and finance.

Over a 25 year span, Sharon worked for Silicon Valley start-ups, a not-for-profit organization that trained people with disabilities, as well as global corporations. During that time, she also conducted classes in business communications, including workshops in effective public speaking and presentation skills, accounting fundamentals, and business writing.

Since moving to Calaveras County in 2003, Sharon has volunteered her skills to community organizations such as the Calaveras Volunteer Center, the Calaveras Senior Center, and the Valley Springs Youth and Family Center. She served on the Board of Directors of the Calaveras County Arts Council, and on the Commission on Aging, the San Andreas Progressive Club and the Calaveras Women’s Network, just to name a few.

In 1999, Sharon started a consulting business that helped new and small businesses develop business plans and sales strategies. She has also designed websites and marketing materials, and provided computer training. Sharon still volunteers time designing and creating websites, fliers and brochures for various community organizations throughout the county, and serves on the Voting & Language Accessibility Advisory Committee (VAAC/LAAC). One of her favorite projects is to maintain the Calaveras County Resource Guide for Seniors. She provides the file to any organization serving seniors at no cost for them to print and distribute. In her free time, Sharon enjoys playing bridge. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

My political philosophy is that we have let labels, be it party preference or ideology, or anything else, get in the way with coming up with the best solutions to problems we are trying to solve. We need to put all bias and prejudices aside, have some compassion and empathy, and just do what’s right, just, fair for as many people as possible.
