NICK BAVARO ON THE ISSUES
I support our police and fire departments. I support more public safety personnel.
Government must be accountable. We must be good stewards of our taxpayer dollars.
We need to improve access to homeless services, while also prioritizing encampment cleanup and accountability.
Modesto needs economic development if we are to create new good paying jobs for our children and grandchildren.
We need to create more opportunities to build a skilled workforce - we want our young people to be able to stay and raise their families here.
We should streamline the permit process and welcome developers with fair incentives to invest into Modesto growth.
A community that looks trashy is thought of by others as trashy. I will be a strong advocate for blight clean up and tree maintenance.
Public trust is essential. Modesto must continue with its recent efforts at transparency and open civil dialogue at the council. I look forward to being an additional voice for transparent and effective government.
