Since assuming office I have been reminded about the critical importance of relationships among elected and community leadership, especially in times of crisis. I have worked for years to build trusting relationships with a broad coalition of community leaders who know how to work together to navigate our path forward.
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed pervasive inequities — in healthcare access, wages, paid sick leave, paid family leave, educational opportunities, housing, childcare, health outcomes, internet and computers — that have not occurred overnight, nor will they be solved quickly. I am committed to doing what it takes, for as long as it takes, to create a more just and equitable community for every resident.
As Supervisor, I am committed to staying laser focused on keeping our communities safe and healthy, keeping our children in school and our residents employed, and addressing our housing needs now and for future generations.
I am honored to be your County Supervisor. My staff and I have compiled some helpful resources available here. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need to be connected to support or services. I am here and honored to serve you.
Stay connected with Supervisor Askew.
