Public Safety is the cornerstone that protects our livable and vibrant city. Fundamentally, there is no service more central to the city’s mission than that of protecting the safety of every Sacramento family.
On the Council, Angelique Ashby has had a laser focus on public safety in her district, and as mayor, she will bring that same focus to our city. Our next mayor must create programs to keep kids on the right track — and as mayor she will bring the established programs that she has developed in Natomas to the city at large. Our next mayor must help improve police-community relations, and Councilmember Ashby spearheaded the creation of the Sacramento Community Police Commission. Our next mayor must lead efforts to reduce emergency response times, as Angelique has done in her district.
It’s why she’s endorsed by public safety leaders and organizations like the Sacramento Police Officers Association, the Sacramento Firefighters Local 522, the Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs Association, Sacramento County Probation Association, and retired District Attorney Jan Scully.
This is her plan — but it’s also the beginning of a conversation. This issue is too important to be anything other than a collaboration. These are problems that we can only solve together.
