Citrus Heights does not need more divided political ambitions, we need leaders who see the future and are willing to work for our community.
- Al Fox
VOTE TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH
Why are you running for City Council, District 4?
We are in an important transition time for our city government. We have a new City Manager, two seats on the council have no incumbent running in this election and we have new district rather than at-large geographical areas to consider. District 4 has the largest available residential, business and commercial development opportunities outside the Sunrise Market Place. I have been a strong presence in the district, I know many of our residents and business owners and I have 30 years of proven leadership skills in government, education and business.
What are two books that have had the most influence on your life? And why/how?
The Bible. I find it a great text on human history, human behavior and psychology of interpersonal relationships. Many of our legal precedents are based upon the same principles that existed in ancient times.
"Becoming The City of Citrus Heights” by Miranda Culp, in collaboration with Bill Van Duker. Reading the political drama, the oppositions back room dealings and the strength of determination by those who founded our city, it is hard not to be reminded of the ‘Can Do” spirit upon which much of our country was founded.
What are the top two things you'd like to change/improve in Citrus Heights, if any?
First, continue to support the rebuilding of our local economy, Sunrise mall properties redevelopment and Auburn Blvd. improvements are central to that growth.
Second, capitalize on the new SJUSD District designation that provides us a seat at the table for the first time in 20 years. Citrus Heights will now have our own district trustee on the board as well as having the ability to build strong relationship with the trustees from Areas 4 and 5 that each have a small portion of our city. Our schools deserve far better representation than we have experienced in the past.
What are three key principles that would guide your votes on the council?
Honesty, Integrity, and what is best for our community.
