The pandemic has had devastating effects on our local economy. I will work collaboratively to find ways to support small business and ensure a timely economic recovery.
We need to ensure our partnerships with the San Mateo County Sheriffs Office and the Redwood City Fire Department continue to be collaborative and forward-thinking, and that we are always considering public health and disaster preparedness best-practices.
Our region still faces a deficit of housing, especially for those in lower income brackets. We need to ensure our teachers, laborers and first responders can afford to live in the communities in which they work. This is vital to the health and safety of our community.
Traffic and Infrastructure
There is much to do to continue the work of taking cars off the roads, improving walkability and connectivity to transit. These are long term, regional changes which require placing housing near jobs and transit, encouraging alternative modes of transportation and actively engaging in this important regional discussion.
Access to affordable childcare has been a longstanding challenge and with the advent of COVID-19 it has become even more pressing. City leadership must work with community organizations, property owners and non-profits to come up with creative solutions to fill this gap quickly.
"It's important that local elected leaders work together, facing issues head on, to protect our communities. I hope you’ll join me to ensure San Carlos remains the City of Good Living while we work together to address our challenges and keep this a community that we are all proud to call home. I hope to earn your vote on November 3rd."
- John Dugan, Candidate for San Carlos City Council
