Delivering Results

Public Safety

Susan believes that protecting public safety requires an effective, unbiased law enforcement structure, staffed by first-responders who are well paid, equipped, trained and supported by mental health professionals. Comprehensive disaster management plans are also required, along with mental health and addiction services for county residents.

Housing Affordability & Homelessness

Susan leads in the countywide fight on homelessness, having driven development of a coordinated multi-agency plan to address the crisis. The County and its partners are now working to improve coordination between agencies and to significantly increase the inventory of affordable housing, the number of shelters, and the availability of mental health and addiction services.

Advancing Representative, Transparent & Accountable Governance

Susan is a leader and a collaborator with established relationships across the community. She believes government must be inclusive, and must provide opportunities for engagement and oversight by its constituents. Her door will be open to all and she will routinely communicate with the public about current issues.

Guaranteeing Water Security for SLO County’s Future

Susan understands the crucial role water plays in both sustaining our local economy—via agriculture and tourism—and ensuring the well-being of every resident. She will implement robust measures to remedy the overdraft pumping of crucial aquifers, and will pursue data-driven strategies for resource conservation and effective recycling.

Committing to Fiscal Responsibility for the County & its Residents
