My Priorities

Public Safety

We all agree that California has a serious issue now with our vegetation management plans. In 2008, the State placed El Dorado County, parts of Cameron Park, and Placerville in High Fire Hazard areas. The past few years of game-changing fires have ravaged similar communities like ours. Since the tragedy of Paradise and the Camp Fire, the vegetation plan has been updated. The Board of Supervisors needs to be pro-active, rather than re-active in working with our communities with their safety and evacuation plans. Not doing this leaves our families and our elderly residents in serious jeopardy.
When the next Fire disaster happens, we need to keep our community together, all of us need to have a plan, as a County.
I am a member of the Fire and Emergency Services Committee. In those discussions, I have gleaned the following priorities for public safety:
 
· El Dorado County needs a reliable alert system with metrics built in so that elected officials, and the public, could know how many households are registered.
 
· Home hardening - instituting safety recommendations on gutter guards, vent screens, etc. to prevent flying embers from infecting other structures. I want to work with County businesses to provide home hardening packages and educate homeowners
 
· For renters, those who can’t afford to harden their homes and struggling businesses, we need to find a way to help them urgently. The State has made some home hardening statutes but has failed to fund them. I’d like to find a way and spread the safety – for the sake of community.
 
Better Roads
El Dorado County needs a strategic long-term plan to improve its roads and work with stakeholders to update, modify and execute that plan. Better roads are critical for our economy, safety, and quality of life.
By establishing its priorities and creating public and private partnerships, we can be prepared for any and all State and Federal funding opportunities when available. Creating special districts to look at a long-term cost sharing programs at some of the remote in-and-out roads is necessary, so as long as safety is not compromised.
Already an impressive element of the County, El Dorado County Transit should be able to expand its Dial-a-Ride system for additional users, including commuter services to the Bay Area, where thousands of County residents work.
I can accept the responsibilities as a Board of Supervisor at the very beginning, using my degree in Regional Development along with my 18 years working in public agencies and community advisory boards.
