Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Promote economic development and private sector job growth. Sacramento County is rated the 3rd worst in the nation for business. I will streamline permitting and find incentives for businesses to grow here.
  • Ensure safe neighborhoods. I will prioritize public safety, increase code enforcement, and partner with non-profits and churches to resolve the homelessness issue.
  • Smart financial management. I will ensure transparent and accountable practices that maximize taxpayer money. I will explore ways to fund the county’s needs other than resorting to tax increases.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration (1)

According to parties across the mental health field, there are not enough psychiatric treatment beds available within the region. What does the county need to do to address that?
Respuesta de Teresa Stanley:

The County needs to martial all resources and partner with the various governmental entities within the Sacramento region. We also need to partner to maximize supportive resources and facilities that are available through non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, grant programs, school districts and insurance companies. Several governmental and private entities are attempting to adequately address this problem with little coordination. The solution appears to be to throw money at the problem without a detailed plan with specific measures to gauge success.  Since people with mental health do not stay within city or community boundaries, the solution must be a comprehensive one that leverages all available partnerships and resources.

Effective Government


Make county government transparent and accountable.  County government should work for you, not get in your way.


Making County Government Work for US!




Restore Economic Prosperity


Sacramento County is ranked 3rd WORST in the nation for small business and entrepreneurs.  Teresa will streamline the County’s permit system to create a true  “one stop shop” for employers that will attract new businesses and create jobs.




Reject Higher Taxes


Teresa OPPOSES the County Transportation Authority’s plan to increase our sales taxes.  Government must learn to live within its means!




Reform Wasteful Government


As our Supervisor, Teresa will audit the budget regularly to cut wasteful spending, reduce bureaucracy and make county government more responsive to residents’ concerns.




Reduce County Pension Debt


Employee pension debt threatens to bankrupt our County.  As Supervisor, Teresa will take action to lower this debt by requiring future county employees to contribute more to their own pensions.




Promote Private Sector Jobs Growth


Employers need incentives to build businsses and grow them within Sacramento County. Too often there are roadblocks put up, rather than removal of challenges.

Business Deserves Better!

Sacramento County is poised to become a thriving region where businesses can relocate and grow. The County has affordable housing, recreational amenities, a great climate, and a talented and educated employee pool. We know that the County has the potential to draw businesses related to 1) Agriculture and Food, 2) Health Services, and 3) Technology. While most of my competitors say that the key to bringing jobs to Sacramento County is to market our region, I believe that is only a minor piece of a viable plan for economic growth in the private sector. Businesses and entrepreneurs will be drawn to an area that offers a strong employee pool and fewer tax burdens and regulations. A strong employee pool will be drawn to an area where there are reasonable housing costs, good schools, amenities and recreation, transportation that is fast, easy and affordable, and assurance of safety for their families. To promote the region to new and growing businesses then, requires strong leadership; leadership that will focus on removing barriers not creating roadblocks. Sacramento County has been ranked the third worst in the nation (just after bankrupt Detroit) for attracting businesses. The mindset that promotes governmental self-preservation must stop, and the County should work to jumpstart and keep those entrepreneurs and business owners who can create jobs here. I see a great Sacramento County in our future. I can only lead if I am elected to do so. Please help me to make that happen!
