How will reducing the number of police officers make the community safer?
In 2018, police officers arrested 11,970 murderers, 495,900 violent criminals, and more than 1 million drunk drivers. In February of this year, a months-long investigation resulted in 518 arrests when police smashed a human trafficking ring and rescued hundreds of children who were being sold into prostitution.
Do activists think that councilors and community groups are going to detain violent gang members, break human trafficking rings or get drunk drivers off our roads?

Our roads are crumbling. That is not hyperbole, they are literally crumbling. And we don’t have the money or a realistic plan to fix them.
Recent reports show California roads are the 3rd worst in the entire country. NHTSA data notes that Highway 99 is now the 7th most dangerous freeway in America. And a study by national non-profit transportation research group TRIP estimates that 70% of Sacramento County’s roads and highways are in poor shape – 41% dangerously so.
The public is well aware of the problem – I hear about it from my constituents almost every day.
We need to get something done.
But instead of focusing on the immediate and urgent problem – fixing our roads – the Sacramento Transportation Authority (STA) is putting together a multi-Billion dollar shopping list of projects in the form of a countywide sales tax increase.

I do not have all the answers; however, it is clear to me that we cannot continue to pass half-baked policies that feel good but in reality, make the situation significantly worse.

Compassion for the homeless is a responsibility we all share.
But in the zeal to help, too many have forgotten – or choose to ignore – the negative impact that homeless camps can have on our neighborhoods. Someone needs to also speak up for the community.
I haven’t forgotten, nor will I ignore it.

Sacramento County Supervisor Sue Frost was one of the guest speakers at the event. “Tonight I attended a Candlelight Vigil sponsored by the Indian Association of Sacramento — and stood in solidarity with my fellow Sacramento Region Citizens and together we recited a pledge that ended with… ‘We, the citizens of Sacramento, hereby pledge that we denounce the terror in any format, in any part of the world,” Frost said. “Honestly… Words don’t come close to expressing the sorrow. Tonight, I am reminded of how lucky I am to live in America, the land of freedom and opportunity. I am grateful that I feel safe in my daily life. I pray for our friends in Pulwama.”

Citrus Heights Councilwoman Sue Frost defeated Folsom businessman Mike Kozlowski on Tuesday to represent the northeast corner of the county on the Board of Supervisors.
Frost had 56 percent of votes compared to Kozlowski’s 44 percent in results late Tuesday night.
The two Republicans emerged from a five-candidate primary to replace Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan, who decided not to run for re-election. The winner will represent a diverse group of communities including Citrus Heights, Folsom, Orangevale, Antelope, Elverta and Rancho Murieta.
Frost, 60, received the largest share of votes in the June primary. She ran as the public safety candidate, advocating for more resources for the Sheriff’s Department and more boots on the ground.
She touted her time on the council, including a year each as vice mayor and mayor. She was endorsed by the other candidates in the primary and by conservative groups such as the Sacramento County Republican Party and Gun Owners of California.
Frost is a registered nurse and a retired real estate businesswoman. She has lived in the district most of her life.
Kozlowski, 48, is a local salesman for Johnson Controls and the head track coach at Vista Del Lago High School. He lives in Folsom. Kozlowski scooped up most of the big-name endorsements during the campaign, including MacGlashan and two of her predecessors, and received considerable financial support from Region Business, a pro-development and growth organization.
Kozlowski ran as the economic development candidate, saying that an improved business climate would generate tax dollars that can address public safety and homelessness. He advocated for streamlining the building and business permit processes and continuing MacGlashan’s regular community meetings.
He has little political experience, though he ran the successful 2014 Measure G campaign for school bonds in Folsom.

CITRUS HEIGHTS MESSENGER
It has been a great privilege to serve on the Citrus Heights City Council and I am looking forward to a great 2016.
By now you may be aware that I am running for County Supervisor in 2016. After considerable thought and an announcement that Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan will not be running in the 2016 race, I decided to run for her seat.
Supervisor MacGlashan has done a great job and I hope to follow in her footsteps by fighting for responsible budgets, supporting law enforcement, and promoting common-sense government.
