Stability and Solutions for Shasta County
Baron Browning is a United States Marine Corps veteran, businessman, and husband who is proud to call Shasta County his home.
Using the skills he gained as an executive, helping Fortune 500 companies, Baron has owned and operated several small businesses in District 5 and kickstarted several non-profit organizations in the North State. He currently serves as the Vice-Mayor for the City of Anderson.
A native of Oregon, Baron knows what makes the North State special. He is committed to ensuring that Shasta County is the best place to raise a family, start a business, and enjoy our beautiful natural landscapes. Shasta County needs a Supervisor that will govern for the betterment of its citizens.
Baron’s wife Susie was born and raised in Shasta County. After spending time in our community, Baron understood how such an amazing woman could come from such a special place. It was not a hard sell for Mrs. Browning to get Baron to move from Sacramento to Anderson to start their family and life together nearly 15 years ago.

Baron’s Vision & Platform
Public Safety & Crime
Everyone should feel safe in Shasta County. Period. Baron is committed to providing our Sheriff’s Department with the resources they need to keep us safe. Too often we are seeing our public safety officers hamstrung by underfunding and understaffing. We need our police and fire officers to be able to do their jobs and keep us safe and enforce the law.
There is no question that Homelessness is the biggest problem in Shasta County. As your Supervisor Baron will work with our cities to facilitate programs that get people out of the streets and put a roof over their head without bankrupting the County. Project Roomkey was a good start, but the lack of coordination from the County has created more confusion than solutions. Baron will rework the program to make sure we are all on the same page – and that we all see results.
Our community has seen firsthand the ravages of wildfires, and unfortunately drought conditions and hot summers are going to continue across the North State. We have to be ready. That means investing in measures that protect our communities and maintain a healthy balance in our wildlands that keeps these fires from getting out of control. It also means giving the brave men and women of our local fire departments the training, equipment and support they need to respond and contain these blazes.
Jobs and the Economy
The pandemic has hit us hard. Like everywhere, we have a record number of our neighbors without jobs. The County needs to be providing resources to our residents who are without work and finding ways to create new jobs to support local families. This should take the form of job training programs, a robust job resources center, and investment in our neighbors looking to open their own business. Shasta County should be a hot-bed of economic activity and Baron will work to make that a reality.
Why Campaign for District Supervisor?
Baron is running because he believes in Shasta County. He believes that Shasta County can be the best place in California to raise a family, start a business, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. We need our elected officials to work for us, to build this county back. Baron will put in the work, listen to all voices, and help make Shasta County realize the potential we all know it has.
Shasta County has its problems though. We are struggling with yearly fires that devastate our communities. Homelessness and addiction runs rampant through our streets, threatening the environment in which we raise our children. And political polarization has virtually ground the Board of Supervisors to a halt, preventing them from doing real work to help our community.
Baron is a successful businessman raising his family in Shasta County. He has the experience and the dedication to bring our Board together to solve tough problems, not just talk about them.
