What is your top environmental concern and how would you address it?

Paige Ellis

City Council, District 8


Proper watershed and stormwater protection measures. Because we are always protecting ourselves from (and preparing ourselves for) the threat of drought and subsequent flooding, we need to pass Prop D for flood mitigation, open space, and water quality protection. I also aim to promote healthy watershed protection measures and address non-compliance with stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWP3). When contractors fall out of compliance with SWP3 protocols, this should be immediately addressed by the project owner.
