Read about why Kim De Serpa is running for county supervisor
What local issues affect you that make you want to run for this office?
“A big issue is that no women have been sitting on the board of supervisors for 12 years. I care about housing and affordability, transportation issues, public safety issues, climate change and disaster preparedness, mental health, substance use disorders, access to health care, excellence in education and services to vulnerable people. It is frustrating for District 2 to feel overlooked and underfunded for basic needs and services.”
What is your dream for your district?
“A dream would be for services that people could actually use to improve their lives. A dream would be that our Pajaro River would be safe from spilling its banks. A dream would be that Mid and South County residents wouldn’t be stuck in horrible traffic for hours. A dream would be that people, including young people and families, could afford to purchase their first home. A dream would be enough affordable housing for all who need it, including seniors and people with disabilities. A dream would be that anyone needing help with mental health or addiction gets access to high-quality care when they need it.”
