My Ballot Statement costa mesa city council

 REBECCA TRAHAN Finance Executive As a mother, finance executive, former business owner, and a 25- year public servant in almost every level of government, I Love living in Costa Mesa District Five. Like many though, I understand changes need to be made to make It better. We need transparency and civility on our council, safer streets, cleaner parks, and sober living regulations. We also need traffic reduction, need to remain business friendly, and need controlled growth while protecting our open space -- especially Fairview Park. I am the only candidate who has the experience, education, and connections necessary to make these changes. Additionally, if elected I will see my position as a civic duty, not a career stepping stone. As a currently appointed member of Costa Mesa's Housing and Public Service Committee, I work with local nonprofits to approve HUD funding and alleviate homelessness, poverty, elder abuse and more. As a former Costa Mesa Pension and Finance Advisory Committee member, I regularly examined Costa Mesa's budget and sought solutions in relation to how California's pension crisis will Impact Costa Mesa.
