Coffee and Conversation as you know I start every Thursday morning with a Zoom meeting at 7:15am. I was only joined by one person. You can join me every Thursday the Meeting ID is 7079548230 and Password is LOCAL707

This was also our regularly scheduled Mendocino Business and Government Leaders Discussion. With the reopening looming we decided to meet only on the Third Thursday. We discussed the confusion around masking mandates and what is to come. I will do my best to share the information on my Mo4Mendo page on Facebook as that is the easiest to update. Please make sure you are following it.

In the afternoon I attended the City of Ukiah Local Road Safety Plan Meeting. MCOG has contracted to create a County wide road analysis to identify safety challenges. You can visit their website and plug in where your concerns are located.

I also attended the monthly EDFC Meeting. We met the THIRD member of the team. Excited to see how the organization moves forward.

If you missed the Drought Ad Hoc meeting with Supervisors McGourty and Haschak you can watch a replay on YouTube

I did attend a meeting regarding Russian River Curtailment presented by the State Water Resources Board you can find it Here:

The IWPC meeting was focused on the need to advocate for data centered water restrictions and removing illegal cannabis water users



I went on a tour of the Jail. Met with Captain Pearce to hear about the plans for expansion and with Rebecca from NaphCare

From the jail to a Cannabis Farm Tour. I went to a farm in Potter Valley that uses Mixed Light to check out their hoop houses and greenhouses. Still plenty to learn when it comes to the “Mixed Light” piece of the Mendo Cannabis Industry.

Supervisor McGourty and I met with Senator McGuire for coffee in the afternoon to talk about our first six months on the job.

Friday night was the Ukiah High Prom. That’s not Supervisor related but I’m so happy they got to have a prom even with a slight sprinkle. They had a great time.



Saturday morning my youngest daughter Andie and I went to the community trash clean up at Building Bridges. This is where the community and shelter guests can work together to keep the neighborhood clean on the Second Saturdays. I hope you’ll join in next time. We start at 9am



More meeting prep for the General Government meeting.



General Government meeting with Supervisor Williams. Direct staff to find a consultant to update all County social media policies for official posting and for what is or isn’t allowed with employees. Direct cannabis staff to help update the Legislative Platform to improve the opportunities for Cannabis businesses in Mendocino County.

At the NCRA there was Unanimous support of The Great Redwood Trail and Support for SB69.



Today I spent the day catching up on meetings that I hadn’t been able to watch yet. You can find videos on YouTube at Mendocino County Video.
