My staff and I are honored to represent and serve more than 650,000 people in the Fifth District. This E-mail is one way I’m able to maintain personal contact with our constituents. Another is our hard copy newsletter.
We have procedures for you to communicate directly with me, and I assure you that every phone call, letter, E-mail, and FAX is heard, read, and acted upon.
With legal restraints on what a Supervisor can and cannot do and with so many people in the Fifth District, here are steps you can use to contact me through my staff:
People should remember that as a County Supervisor, I must act as a judge. By law, with few exceptions such as personnel matters or legal action against the County, decisions must be made in an open, public session. I can’t intervene directly with the operations of a County department or discuss specific land issues with planning groups or individuals. This is why I have a staff—and I might add, those on my staff are top quality people, dedicated to serving the public with courtesy, professionalism, and efficiency.
I welcome input from community groups, individuals, businesses, schools, charitable organizations—the more information you provide me through my staff, the better it helps me reach decisions that are in the best interests of our County.
As you know, I am out in the Fifth District all the time and welcome the chance to say hello to you and hear what you have to say. Most likely, if you have a concern, I’ll take your name and phone number and give that to a staff person to follow up.
Our internal office procedures have worked well and, again, if you’ll excuse my bias, I think you’ll find the best treatment in District 5.
