Public Safety Issues

A main 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 the other fire districts and supplemental revenue from our tourist occupancy tax program.  I am currently engaged in bringing this funding to the ballot in June.
