NEWS

01-06-14 > Board of Supervisors Reorganizational Meeting;  Sup. Elliott was elected by his colleagues to serve as Board Chairman for 2014.  His incoming Chairman remarks can be viewed here. 

12-06-13 > Press Release – Statewide County Supervisors Propose Working Together to Solve California’s Biggest Water Challenges;  “It is critically important to ensure that we are working together to achieve fair, scientifically sound, and sustainable solutions to the State’s very complex water management and land use problems,” said San Joaquin County Supervisor, Bob Elliott. “Local government is a critical stakeholder in any statewide water solution including the BDCP process. It is essential that our concerns are addressed and that we have a seat at the table to help craft a comprehensive water plan for all Californians.”  View full press release here.

11-14-13 > San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District: Supervisor Elliott represents San Joaquin County on the Air District Governing Board.  The Air District announced that the San Joaquin Valley had achieved the 1-hour ozone standard established under the federal Clean Air Act, making it the first and only region in the nation to attain a standard after having been classified as being in “Extreme” non-attainment by the federal EPA.  Here is Supervisor Elliott’s statement relative to this event; “Meeting the 1-hour ozone standard is a huge accomplishment, for which we owe a great deal of gratitude to our Valley residents and businesses for their sacrifices.  However, as we celebrate this accomplishment, we should not lose sight of the fact that for our Valley citizens, the effects of the Federal Clean Air Act are both dysfunctional and unreasonable. We have been paying fines of $29 million/year since 2010 because of non-attainment of a standard that was revoked in 2005—8 years ago.  And regrettably, this is not the last standard to which we will be subjected.  As we speak, EPA has already promulgated much more severe standards that may be nearly impossible to meet.  These new standards approach the Valley’s naturally occurring background concentration of emissions.  In our District staff’s view, given the technology that is currently available, these latest standards can only be met with an almost total ban on fossil fuel combustion.  This is neither reasonable nor logical, and it has the potential to have a huge negative impact on Valley businesses, Valley agriculture, and the way our Valley residents lead their daily lives.  What we need are common sense solutions and approaches to our air quality issues.  Our District attempts to provide those common sense approaches.  The EPA needs to inject common sense into its regulations.  Let’s all work together to make that happen.

   
11-07-13 > Joint City/County Criminal Justice Task Force Meeting: Supervisor Elliott reconvened this Task Force, which had been dormant for a couple of years.  The Task Force was created to engage the elected officials and decision makers of the seven cities and keep them informed and up to date on where we are and where we are headed as our Criminal Justice System evolves.  AB109, the State’s Prison Realignment law, has resulted in many changes.  Although our Sheriff, Chief Probation Officer, District Attorney, Public Defender, Courts, and Chiefs of Police are doing a great job of answering the challenges of AB109, Supervisor Elliott is convinced that reconvening this Task Force is fundamental to maintaining a dialogue to most effectively address the many facets of crime in our County.


10-24-13 > Mountain House Economic Development Stakeholder Meeting: Supervisor Elliott convened the first ever meeting of this group, which included:  County government, Mountain House Board President Celeste Farron, and representatives of Lehman Brothers/Kamilos, TriMark/Sunchase Holdings, Shea Mountain House LLC, Machado Properties, and Spatafore Properties.  The purpose of this meeting was to open a dialogue amongst the various stakeholders and governmental agencies, to promote synergy and encourage positive actions to generate economic development in Mountain House and enable the new town to reach its jobs/housing balance goals.


09-12-13 >  San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District; Supervisor Elliott represents San Joaquin County on the Air District Governing Board.  Their charge is to find ways to improve our air quality in effort to meet the stringent rules and regulations of the Federal EPA and the California Air Resources Board.  You can watch the Air District’s recent Public Service Announcement here.

07-09-13> Board of Supervisors honor area veterans.  See Supervisor Elliott pay special tribute to two south County Veterans here.


06-27-13 > Board of Supervisors approve $1.33 billion dollar Budget.  Sup. Elliott supported a District Attorney budget and supplemental budget request that adds 5 prosecutors and 4 investigators, bolstering efforts to investigate crimes and prosecute criminals.  Sup. Elliott also raised awareness 5th District is extremely underserved in County park facilities.  The County operates 21 parks, only one of which is in the South County.  The Budget can be viewed here; http://sjgov.org/cao/county_budget.aspx  

     

 06-04-13 > Board of Supervisors discussed Public Safety and Expansion of the Jail. The Board subsequently voted against expanding the Jail and directed staff to release the $80 million construction grant back to the State. Watch  Sup. Elliott's final remarks here.

05-16-13 > Governor’s May Budget Revision: under the formula outlined in the May Revise, $300 million in county health care funding will be redirected in 2013-14, with an additional $2.2 billion potentially directed over the following two years. At stake if this proposal goes through, San Joaquin County could lose an estimated $3,955,703 (2013-14), $11,867,110 (2014-15), and $17,141,382 (2015-16).  These figures not only far exceed any anticipated savings that counties are expected to achieve, the redirection will prematurely force counties to cut into critical public health and safety net services they provide today and will reduce funding available to care for the remaining uninsured.
