General Remarks

Calaveras PATV District 3 Candidates Interview

Public Safety Issues

I’m very pleased that during my term we have been successful in increasing our law enforcement presence and now have a substantial number of additional Deputies on the street and Crime is down in District 3. 

Business in Calaveras County

Tree Mortality Issue

Calaveras County was one of 14 mountain Counties drastically affected by the bark beetle invasion and the inherent circumstances, which led to the dying of these species of trees. This became such a problem after hundreds of thousands of trees suddenly died in the California area, specifically in the rural mountain communities, that a governor’s task force regarding tree mortality was formed.

General Plan

Issues of concern involve the simplification of the general plan and removal of Planned Development in the Arnold and Avery areas, with a close examination of the communities in District 3 and the entire County of Calaveras.

Cannabis Issue

In February of 2016, I voted that Calaveras County should regulate commercial cannabis cultivation. However, when the Board found the need for an Urgency Ordinance, I was the only dissenting vote for its acceptance.  My vote was predicated on the fact that there were some protections missing in it that I wanted implemented. 

Storm Damage and Infrastructure Issues

In the aftermath of the Butte Fire specifically in District 2 (West Point Mountain Ranch areas) our road infrastructure was already severely damaged by the fire and the resulting activity and restoration. Add to that damaged and deteriorating road infrastructure

Youth and Career Issues

For the last 3+ years I have been involved with a group of people including School Superintendents, labor organizations and business owners establishing a Technical Training program for the young folks who will not be able to attend higher college education after high school.
