Michael Oliveira announces his re-election campaign for Supervisor, Third District, of Calaveras County. Since his election in 2014, Supervisor Oliveira has dealt with several critical issues within the County, such as lack of law enforcement personnel, disintegrating infrastructure, and natural disasters. His dedication to serving the community is shown by his service in the Marine Corps, his years spent as a police officer in the Bay Area and many more years working as a Deputy (three of them with zero compensation). He continues to devote himself to our community and shows his willingness to listen to the constituents, represent their desires at Board meetings, and improve the quality of life in Calaveras County. 

With these points in mind, Mr. Oliveira has three topics he would like to concentrate on in the upcoming term—public safety, quality growth, and improving the framework (Infrastructure) that our County relies on.
Supervisor Oliveira has also been vocal about the matter of cannabis cultivation—let the voters decide. Since legalization in the State of California, Calaveras County’s position has been a frequent topic in the news. The County passed an ‘Urgency Ordinance” that allowed for registration of potential cultivation. This allowed cultivators to grow until a permanent vote could take place.
The recent election within the County has shown that citizens do not want grows or sales strictly for commercial cultivation, and they are concerned about a possible increase in crime. However, monies collected from this legalization have been earmarked for increased deputy sheriff presence, and to fund enforcement/inspection personnel. We are now subject to lawsuits from existing cultivators, and litigation is expected to reach an all time high. Supervisor Oliveira is the only one that has been involved in this process for the last three years. His knowledge and background is critical in moving forward.
Accomplishments over the last three and a half years include:
●increased deputy sheriff patrol in District 3, as well as improving officer and public safety by swapping out aged patrol cars in the Sheriff’s fleet.
●revised the General Plan to more clearly define the vision of the County (had not been reviewed in over 20 years). It will serve as our guide and will detail County residents’ values. The plan is vital for land use, conservation, housing and our ideas for the future
●worked closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to insure the maximum amount of resources (financial and consulting) are provided to the County to restore the quality of life that has been lost due to several recent disasters (fires, floods, matter of tree mortality).
Michael Oliveira has shown that he cares about the community in which he serves. He has accomplished a lot in less than four years as a County supervisor, and he has many goals for the next term.
