By RAUL A. CAMPILLO
As a San Diego native and now your newly elected Councilmember, I’m honored and humbled to be of service to you and your families.
My office is already hard at work addressing the many issues facing our communities. At this very moment, we are strategizing how to best achieve an electricity and gas franchise agreement with SDG&E after extending the prior agreement to June 1. In this process, as in all others, I will put the needs of the residents of District 7 first, ensuring homeowners and businesses will have the electricity needed, at affordable rates, to take care of their families, employees, and customers.
As your Councilmember, I plan to address longstanding issues of housing affordability and homelessness, while implementing relief for families and businesses suffering due to the pandemic. Your physical and financial health is a top concern for us.
In addition to pursuing solutions within City Hall, I will be an active member in each of the four Navajo neighborhoods. Nadia and I were glad to take part in the Dec. 5 Navajo Canyon clean-up and thank Kim Morris and Shain Haug for inviting us.
If you have an issue that requires assistance from our office, please visit www.sandiego.gov/citycouncil/cd7/staff to identify the relevant staff member for your area and reach out to them directly. Each of my staff members brings significant experience working with city staff and regional elected officials so that we can fix problems efficiently — we promise to be a responsive office and we value your input.
