“Gerryworks4u” is an appropriate title for this Supervisor campaign in District 2 because you will see Gerry in his office during the posted office hours. You will see him making calls, conducting research, holding meetings, and welcoming walk-ins.
The law requires the Supervisor’s office to remain open 40 hours weekly. Like any other working office, you would assume the Supervisor would be present and available during those hours. If no one calls or drops by the office with issues, it is NOT time to take a break. It is time to reach out to the community and ask probing and investigative questions that will expose festering issues and bring forth insightful solutions to improve the county.
Gerry believes that whatever task he has to accomplish, he gives it his all so that you will receive an informed and well-researched answer to any questions you may have. He believes that Government is there to protect our rights, not take them away. Gerry will encourage you to exercise your rights.
We should always hire the most qualified person for the job through a competitive process. The Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that tax valuations are fair for everyone. Gerry is bi-lingual and can speak, read and write Spanish fluently. He can communicate and relate to all citizens in District 2. He will keep you informed.
