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 damage a deteriorating road infrastructure due to 15 years plus of budget reduction and unavailable resources to maintain our roadways and prevent replacement or new construction of the required roads. This storm damage combined with our existing deteriorating conditions has placed Calaveras County in a very severe deficit situation for our roadways. I have and will maintain this as a priority. I will seek immediate remedies for fixing our infrastructure, even with large hurdles in the financing of these much-needed projects. I will continue to sit on national and local boards dealing with our federal and state resources to fix our roads. This is a priority that I am deeply engaged in on federal, state and local levels. Weather conditions and moisture situations in our rural mountain areas could reintroduce conditions susceptible to the bark beetle invasion once again.
