Michael Nevin ’61, longtime Peninsula politician

Michael Nevin ’61, one of the most respected local politicians, passed away Dec. 1 at UCSF after losing a battle with esophageal cancer. He was 69.

Mr. Nevin made news in 2002 when he decided not to move his family after redistricting made him ineligible to run for the California State Assembly, a job he had been eyeing. “That was a tough time for him and his family,” said longtime political ally and friend Ed McGovern ’75.

“Some politicians are criticized for putting their careers ahead of their families. One of the things I admired most about Mike is that he was poised to take the seat with very little competition. He had worked towards that goal for the past 20 years of his life of public service. Then he chose his family over that seat because he knew how much they valued their lifelong home in Daly City. I truly admired him for making that personal sacrifice.”

McGovern added that “we lost a true Ignatian in every sense of the word. Mike Nevin was a man for his family, friends, constituents, community and Church. He made history, changed lives and loved his family. It is a profound loss but a life so well lived.”

“Mike truly was a great man of a happy, intelligent, giving, gracious and generous social-justice-oriented Catholic family,” added former SI President Anthony. P. Sauer, S.J. “We all miss him terribly.”

Educated at SI, City College of San Francisco and USF, Mr. Nevin joined the San Francisco Police Department, where he spent 27 years, rising to the rank of inspector.

He served as a member of the Daly City Planning Commission from 1979 to 1982, and also served as chair during a portion of that time.

He was elected to the Daly City Council in 1982 and served as mayor there in 1984 and 1989. During his tenure as mayor, Daly City was recognized as an outstanding city by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Through that Conference, Mr. Nevin introduced Daly City to the Economic Development Program.

From 1989 to 1992, he served on the Criminal Justice Council of San Mateo County and the Narcotics Task Force, a subcommittee of the Criminal Justice Council. He was elected to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors on June 2, 1992, and served as Board President in 1997 and again in 2001.

Supervisor Nevin served on the Bay Area Air Quality Management District as secretary, vice chair and chair and was a board member and past-president of the SMC Health Center board of directors. He also served as a member of the Judicial Council of California Probation Services Task Force, the Summer Jobs for Youth 2001 Chair and the United Way of the Bay Area 1997 San Mateo County Campaign Chair. He was also former board liaison to the Commission on Aging, the Mental Health Advisory Board and the San Mateo County Fair Board.

After leaving the Board of Supervisors, he served as executive director of the Service League of San Mateo County.

He was also a member and past president of the board of directors of the Catholic Youth Organization and received the group’s Service to Youth award. Since 1991, he served on the board of directors of the Janet Pomeroy Center. He received numerous commendations and awards, including the Papal Medal Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice and Citizen of the Year from the City of Daly City.

He is survived by his wife, Kathleen, and their children Michael ’86, Michelle (Dean of Students at SI) and Tim ’90.
