My Top 3 Priorities

  • 1) Implementing policies that will result in a reduction in our greenhouse gas emissions – including decreasing our vehicle miles travelled, transitioning to renewable energy and away from fossil fuels, and decreasing the impact of solid waste.
  • 2) Continued fiscal health and further establishment of additional revenue to ensure we have the ability to provide the best level of service possible while maintaining healthy reserves to limit the damage the next recession may do.
  • 3) Continue supporting those impacted by the Thomas Fire and subsequent debris flows as they go through recovery and work on necessary infrastructure to protect residents during the next natural disaster.
