11.1.22 Meeting Summary and my Candidate Statement

While there were no action items or public hearings at last night's meeting, we did hear introductions from several local businesses that have opened in Clayton this calendar year.  I hope this continues as a regular event going forward as it's a great way to get to know the new places that have opened up shop in town.

There was also a presentation from the Contra Costa Mosquito and Vector Control District. The District provides essential services for protecting public health by working to prevent vector-borne disease in Contra Costa County.

The District is governed by a a Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees are officials appointed by their respective city councils to govern the Mosquito and Vector Control District knowledgeably and effectively. They serve without compensation but are provided with an allowance to defray expenses while on official business (not to exceed $100 per month). Trustees do not receive any type of benefits and serve for a term of two to four years.

After 18 years of service, Clayton's representative on the Board of Trustees for the District has stepped down and the city is looking to fill the spot.  If interested, please see more information at the city's page on Vacancies and Volunteer Opportunities here:

I also gave the following statement during public comment, which is the same as the post I made this weekend:
