Our valley. Our voice.
Sit tight. Over the coming months, we'll be unveiling our plans to address challenges like Santa Clarita's heroin epidemic, our growing homeless population, and the environmental problems threatening our beautiful valley. We'll also discuss our vision of a brighter future, and how we can build a better city together.
We're so excited for the future.
We hope you are too.
The Drug Epidemic
The drug epidemic sweeping Santa Clarita will only get worse if we don't take decisive steps to counter the devastating impact heroin has on our community. While recent moves to equip our men and women in law enforcement with Narcan (a lifesaving overdose drug) are commendable, we must be proactive rather than reactive. This means expanding access to rehabilitation services and clinics, and having hard conversations about what does and doesn't work.
As the third largest city in Los Angeles county, Santa Clarita can and should become a leader in the field of clean, renewable energy. By enrolling in the Los Angeles Community Choice Energy aggregate, we can bring renewable energy to Santa Clarita at an unprecedented scale. The best part? Joining the LACCE Joint Powers Agreement includes energy rate savings for the city, for business owners, and for residents.
Over the course of our campaign, we'll be talking about a comprehensive action plan to address the burgeoning homeless population in Santa Clarita. With rent and housing costs on the rise, we can expect more of our neighbors to end up on the streets. By taking action now, we can ensure the safety of both our families, and those struggling on the streets.
Affordable Housing for Seniors
Santa Clarita has a sizable population of senior citizens, who often live on a fixed income. We need to ensure the basic right of our seniors to safe, affordable housing.
Everyone who owns and operates a business in Santa Clarita sees the potential of our city. By inspiring innovation and attracting entrepreneurs and investors, we'll ensure Santa Clarita remains a beacon of prosperity for future generations. Promoting sustainable programs like the Recycled Material Development Zone (RMDZ) project and incentives for growth-industries and sustainable firms will position us to become a city of the future. Fiber-optic infrastructure options will attract good-paying tech jobs to Santa Clarita.
Logan works with the California Clean Money Campaign and California Clean Money Action Fund to pass legislation to end the disastrous influence of money in politics and ensure our public servants aren't bought and paid for by billionaires and special interests. It's time for Santa Clarita to take control of our elections and enact local ordinances for campaign finance limits and disclosure rules.
Building A Better City Council
Recent estimates put the population of Santa Clarita at upwards of 219,000 people. It's time Santa Clarita moves to a districted election system to avoid costly CVRA lawsuits and ensure a more representative council body. Furthermore, expanding the number of council seats (and districts) will allow for a diverse, accountable city council that represents every corner of our community.
