Now we know the candidates, we need to hear their views.

City Council candidates. How do you see improvements to infrastructure in light of the new housing proposals and increased number of residents? How do you see planning for things like water for more residents? How do you see improvements for utilities, particularly for electricity, with more drains on power due to more EVs and more residents? How do you see improvement in traffic efficiency, traffic flow and parking? How do you see improvements in quality of life issues for residents already living here, better recreational choices, better youth entertainment, better affordable retail and dining options, better public transit options for school commutes and seniors, etc.

School Board Candidates. How do you feel PAUSD did with Covid shutdowns of schools? Do you think anything can be learned from this for next time? Do you think emergency preparedness has changed as a result of Covid? Do you think emergency preparedness should cover what might happen in the event of serious fire damage, earthquake, or similar that takes place at a campus outside school time? Do you have any comments on why California is so low on academic standards compared to the rest of the country and even more importantly the rest of the world? Do you think it is important to keep single gender restrooms and locker rooms at all 3 levels of our schools?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
