Linda’s Action Plan for Yolo County
Jobs – Housing – Sustainability
“It’s been ten years since Yolo County has had a woman on the Board of Supervisors. In that time, housing, healthcare and childcare costs have skyrocketed, the percent of youth in foster care has increased by 50% and homelessness has exploded. Studies show that when women serve, support increases exponentially for families, childcare/education, and seniors.
My name is Linda Deos, and I am running to be your next Supervisor to bring vision, courage, and a fresh perspective to our Board of Supervisors.”
JOBS - With our high cost of living, it is critical that the jobs in our community pay livable wages - which means enough to provide for housing, food, healthcare and a reasonable standard of living. As your supervisor, I will fight to make Yolo a Rural Innovation Hub to create good paying local jobs geared towards twenty-first century, progressive solutions for rural communities.
HOUSING - The lack of affordable housing in our county is at crisis levels and addressing it has not been a priority of our current Board. As your Supervisor, I will make housing a top priority to ensure that we have adequate housing for all income levels. This means building more affordable housing for farm workers, families and seniors as well as housing for our unhoused residents.
SUSTAINABILITY - The climate crisis is real and Yolo must be prepared. As your Supervisor, I will work with our farmers and community members to prepare for extreme weather and maintain our agricultural land, food and water supply while avoiding unnecessary sprawl. I will also work to ensure Yolo meets the state deadline of net zero carbon emissions and support the local Green New Deal.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE - My life’s work has been to protect the most vulnerable amongst us, and as your Supervisor I will ensure that we properly fund non-incarceration approaches to crime including: housing, education and job training that have been demonstrated to reduce recidivism rates and thus keep everyone safer.
ACCOUNTABILITY - As we work to improve Yolo County to best meet the needs of all of our residents, it is critical that your voice is heard. As your supervisor, I will continue to engage in local community events, maintain office hours and ensure that the county is listening to and addressing your priorities.
