I am delighted to endorse Linda Deos for the Yolo County Board of Supervisors. It is time to change representatives.
First, we need a woman on the Board of Supervisors. No woman has served as county supervisor since 2010. Second, Linda is interested in issues that have been ignored or mishandled for many years. Linda would like to expand daycare openings, including the possibility of the county offering a childcare program for its approximately 1,400 employees.
The county child protection program also needs review: the number of children in the foster care system in Yolo County has increased from 388 in 2014 to over 670 in 2019. Currently, only 45% of foster children are placed in our county — 55% are placed outside Yolo County. Among California’s 58 counties, 50 of them have better rates of “in-county” placements than Yolo. What is going on?
