High priority

When I met Olivia Diaz for the first time last year as she went door to door in the Banner Mountain neighborhood, the first topic she mentioned to each resident was her concern for fire safety. This was and continues to be one of Olivia’s highest priorities.

Olivia chairs her community’s Fire Safe Committee, because, in her words, “There is no more immediate danger to neighborhoods in District 1 than wildfire. We must keep our parcels cleared and safe and support our local fire districts and the Fire Safe Council.”

Olivia will keep fire safety, as well as other issues vital to our community and quality of life, at the forefront when she is supervisor. Her opponent does not have a monopoly on the fire safety issue. I, personally will feel much better protected with her in office than I would with her opponent. Olivia will make a great supervisor!
