Statement of JEFF ALMQUIST, Candidate for
County Supervisor, 5th District
County of Santa Cruz
Education and Qualifications:
BA, Yale; JD, University of Connecticut; MBA, San Jose State
Its been a privilege to work for you. Ive ably lived up to my responsibilities as your representative, reaching out with neighborhood coffees and District meetings where I seek your ideas and feedback. As creator of the Environmental Health Task Force, Ive strived to make County government "user friendly" and more accountable.
Ive worked to protect the environment and water resources, promote recycling and restore streams. Now we have better local forestry rules protecting neighborhoods, limits on helicopter harvesting and riparian buffers.
To promote a healthier community for our families, I initiated an outdoor tobacco advertising ban, limited public alcohol use, supported youth drug treatment programs, early childhood programs for young parents, and affordable housing, and helped bring about the Community Pool and Teen Center.
Ive supported transportation improvements, including Fishhook repairs, Highway 1 widening, improvements on Scotts Valley Drive, better bus service, rural road funding, bikeway acquisition and development, and proposed the electric bike program.
Im proud to have strong support from educators, environmentalists, labor, law enforcement, firefighters, business and property owners. With your vote, I will continue working with you to improve our community. Thanks!
