Support Mina Diaz Grass roots Campaign
The city of Vallejo will have District elections starting November 2020. Prior to this, our elections were "at large" meaning that residents could vote for any candidate regardless of where they lived. District elections require that Vallejo residents can only vote for candidates that are running and live in their district.
Districts 1, 3 and 6 are up for election in November 2020. In 2022 Districts 2, 4 and 5 will have elections. I am running for District 3 which is the green section of the map.
Please remember that although you cannot vote for candidates not running for your District, you can still support them in many other ways. The decisions being made on the council will require a majority vote. All council members and the Mayor will be deciding in what direction to take the city, so it's important to have people who will make the decisions that will benefit our city and ALL residents.
The economic well being of our community is imperative to moving Vallejo forward.
Investing in our small owner operated businesses by ensuring they have the tools and support they need to sustain and grow, will allow them to comfortably contribute to Vallejo's economy.
Encourage companies to choose Vallejo as their home by building and improving our infrastructure.
Allow for real community input and engagement.
Safe Neighborhoods are a key component of a Strong City.
Transparency, accountability and timely communication in all departments within our City is a must. There are 23 police misconduct suits pending against the Vallejo Police Department today. We must adopt a new model for an independent oversight committee, where our residents' voice is heard, where community safety for all residents is a priority and where we focus on reforming our Police Department.
We must look closely at the root cause of our crime and implement a plan that will allow a collaboration between nonprofits, our community and our local law enforcement.
Our city has faced several fires in the last year. Education on prevention and staying safe is critical. Every second matters. We must ensure that all areas of our city have adequate response times.
A united community is a prosperous community.
We must invest in our youth. It is our responsibility as a city to establish and sustain programs that will give our youth an equal opportunity at a better life. If we invest in our children, we all win.
Strengthen partnerships between the city, community and non-profit organizations. This will ensure that there is equal representation for everyone.
Teamwork is imperative between the Vallejo City Unified School District, our City representatives.
