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.  Another major concern of mine has been the inability to provide adequate fire protection for Calaveras County as a whole. I appreciate, as do many citizens in District 3, the Ebbetts Pass Fire District’s performance and staffing. This is largely due to a District 3 voter initiative to finance the Ebbetts Past Fire District by special tax assessment. I was disappointed in the inability of other fire districts to pass such a measure although efforts have been made in the last 2 to 3 years to do so. I am in the process of seeking other funding avenues to support our fire protection and prevention services for Calaveras County. These efforts include supporting special tax assessments for supplemental revenue from our tourist occupancy tax program.
