Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

My governing philosophy emphasizes three things: Transparency, accountability, and results. I believe first and foremost in representing the public's best interests and involving the public in decision-making. During my 10 years in the state legislature, I created videos and power point presentations to educate the public on the causes of the State's budget crisis and held massive public hearings attended by thousands of Californians to take input on how best to balance the budget during the Great Recession. My approach was to make the cuts to services necessary to balance the budget while preserving the programs Californians need and expect until we were able to return to fiscal health. I would use this same approach on the Board of Supervisors--exercise oversight on County functions, require accountability for public expenditures, and include the public in decision-making.

— May 18, 2016 Noreen Evans For Supervisor

Sonoma County is facing serious challenges, and we need strong, independent and principled leadership to stand up against powerful interests in order to protect the resources of Sonoma County for future generations. In this video Noreen Evans speaks on how she fought to keep our state parks open for everyone, and commits to continue to do the same as Fifth District County Supervisor.
