What a difference a few years can make.
The vibrancy and momentum in our city is palpable. Downtown and Midtown are buzzing with new energy and new development, now it’s time to expand this same focus to all of our neighborhoods. Quietly this is already happening: In Tahoe Park there’s a line out the door at Bacon and Butter, and in North Sacramento Del Paso Boulevard’s shops and restaurants are sparking a quiet renaissance, while supermarkets are opening for the first time in years — and the Delta Shores project is bringing the biggest investments that South Sacramento has seen in years.
Our next mayor must be fully committed to applying the same energy that we’ve put into our Central City to neighborhoods across the city. From supporting high-wage job creation in South Sacramento to expanding after-school programs in Oak Park; from making it easier for young entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams and open businesses, to rededicating our city to a green vision of environmental sustainability.
Together, our city grows more vibrant by the day. This is our home, and we need a mayor who will fight to ensure that every Sacramentan can participate in our shared future.
