Rancho Cordova has worked hard to efficiently use our transportation tax dollars. We've gotten more state and federal grants than a city our size should expect, and we've been able to make major transportation investments as a result - like the $42 million investment in 4.5 miles of Folsom Boulevard that has not only made it safer and more attractive, but also added sidewalks and bike lanes and renewed Rancho Cordova's "front porch".
Keeping roads in good repair by sealing and repaving are necessary in order to be efficient in road maintenance. We've raised the quality of our streets in Rancho Cordova, and are on-track to repave every existing street in the City. Getting every street to a status of good repair and keeping it there is our goal. Finding the resources to to that is difficult, but it is what we need to do.
Strong Leadership in Transportation
I have a strong leadership record in transportation that benefits Rancho Cordova:
- Elected and served as Chair of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) -- the Sacramento region's largest source of transportation funding as the agency responsible for distributing state and federal transportation dollars.
- Served as Chair of the Board of the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT)
- Lead the National League of Cities efforts in Transportation as their National Policy Chair on Transportation and Infrastructure.
- Chair of the regional Commercial Corridor Task Force - finding ways to reinvest and revitalize older corridors like Folsom Blvd.
