I am Camilla Bustamante and I want nothing more than for our community to work from its strengths and continue to grow in well-being for all our citizens. Sure, we have challenges to attend to, but when we work together, we can work for solutions that improve conditions for our entire community.
Our rural communities have certainly changed. We have so much more available to us than those in previous centuries, but now we face different challenges. Issues like access to plentiful and clean water; the ability to raise children in a safe and healthy community; and the need to provide housing without creating conditions that displace our residents and future generations are of high importance to me. I will work to ensure that the quality of life for our residents is better than ever. And that teachers, law enforcement, service industry and other working people can afford to live in our county.
I chose to become a public servant so that together we can cultivate the best of our community heritage and contemporary civic engagement to address county-wide issues. Thank you, and please let me know if I can answer any questions.
