Weekly Update #5 - February 1, 2022

Hi I’m Mo Mulheren, the Second District Supervisor. Each week I issue a written report about some of the projects I’m working on and the meetings I attend. This is not a comprehensive list of my activities but meant to give you some ideas about topics that I am working on that might be of interest to you.

 

The Behavioral Health Advisory Board met and discussed updates from the Behavioral Health Director and service providers. This citizen advisory committee is imperative to making sure that there is transparency and achievable outcomes. Have you considered joining a Board or Commission? I have a vacancy in District 2 if you are interested in learning more here is a link to the website so you can see what they work on: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-and-human-services-agency/mental-health-services/mental-health-board

 

Every Thursday morning I have a meeting I call Coffee and Conversation. I would love to have you join me it is on Zoom at 7:15am - 7:45 am and you can hop in to the meeting and join in with whatever topic of conversation you'd like to discuss from housing to mental health to cannabis.

 

MSWMA- Receive update from Interim Manager on recruitment for a FT Manager, hear from community members about illegal dumping, provide a small raise to the crew in the yard

 

I attended a webinar called "Trail Ambassador Program Tricks and Tips for Best Practices", I think our community does have valid concerns about the Great Redwood Trail and how that is managed so learning from other communities might provide some helpful insights before its even built.

 

There was a meeting of the Countywide Oversight Board which consists of the County and the four incorporated cities to make sure that the Redevelopment funds that were issued are appropriately tracked.

 

I attended (and completed) a Brown Act & Ethics Training presented by County Counsel. Elected officials and Board members must complete that every two years.

 

Friday afternoon I went to the Greater Ukiah Business and Tourism Alliance Cannabis 21+ Ribbon Cutting. The more that we can normalize dispensaries as businesses in our community the better! If you haven't been to a dispensary check it out.

 

I usually spend Sunday afternoon and evening on agenda review, this week we had a small agenda only 563 pages I must say I love the presentations being included in advance in the agenda and I hope it continues to streamline meetings.

 

The majority of my day Monday was filled with Cannabis discussion on agenda items and answer questions.
