I am running for County Supervisor for many reasons, all of which are close to my heart and have or will affect my family and more importantly our community as a whole.
It’s time for A New View in District #2.
Last Chance Grade…..I have been following this issue as I’m sure many of you have. Like all of you I drive that road regularly, NOW my kids do. I am not willing to wait until 2039 for a fix. At a recent town hall meeting with Cal Trans, we were told that if there was a slide, the road would only be down a few weeks, a month tops. I find that hard to believe. I will push for emergency status , so it can get done sooner rather than later.
Sutter Coast Hospital…..We need a full service hospital, whether it’s Sutter Coast or possibly someone else. We need a hospital that is willing to bring more Doctors and specialists to our area so we don’t need to go out of town for BASIC services. Every time you or your love ones need to travel outside our county it creates a financial burden on our families.
Revitalizing our Community….. We are surrounded by the most beautiful landscape, yet our town seems to be neglected in some areas. I want to clean up and revitalize our community so people will stop not just drive thru. I want to make it easier for our citizens to invest in our area with opening small business and achieving the American dream.
I am a Realtor, I am embarrassed by the bight in some areas when I drive around with clients. That is NOT who we are as a community.
I have lost the opportunity to sell a home to an out of the area client because of the lack of services at the Hospital.
When asked if they can or cannot do something with their home my answer is always it depends on when you call and who you ask. There is NO PATH a homeowner can follow that is the same every time with every person. I get that there are variations, but we need to have consistency.
I am the person who will ask the questions that need to be asked and do what it takes to get the job done.
My opponent has had multiple terms to work on these problems and has chosen to ignore or work against them. It’s time for a new view for District #2.
