The past few years have shown us that readiness is an important factor in ensuring public health and managing emergencies. As your County Commissioner, I will listen to public health experts and those tasked with protecting the public from disease and pandemics. While Covid-19 numbers have decreased, it is still our obligation to ensure that the public has access to vaccines, Covid-19 tests, and treatment. Furthermore, I will work to make sure that low-income residents have access to high-quality affordable healthcare, by working with stakeholders to invest in more clinics, urgent care facilities, and programs for those who need them.
