Roads & Pensions
James Gore will collaborate with public employee groups and the Board of Supervisors to continue addressing the issue of pension reform. The County has already made great strides to reduce unfunded pension liabilities, but more work lies ahead.
While James served as a presidential appointee at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, he interacted with public employee groups on a regular basis, leading labor management forums and engaging with public employee groups. James will apply his experience interacting with employee groups to ensure a balanced solution that sustains our County’s workforce while providing additional resources for our transportation network.
Roads and streets serve as the backbone of our transportation infrastructure. While the completion of the Highway 101 Widening Project and SMART Train will provide relief for commuters travelling longer distances, our roads are the foundation for travelling within our community, whether you’re walking, biking or driving. James knows that poor road conditions are all too prevalent in the Fourth District and will ensure we rebuild and maintain more of our County’s roads.
