Cindy Gustafson Speaking on Issues

“With more than 30 years of public policy experience, I understand that working collaboratively and forging partnerships is the key to solving challenges and supporting our communities. We don’t move forward alone.”

Protecting the 5th District takes many forms.  Since taking office it has included:  supporting our law enforcement and first responders so that they are well-equipped and well-staffed; ensuring residents are informed and part of the decision-making affecting their lives and homes, championing efforts to address forest health; pushing State officials to find solutions to the fire insurance crisis; advocating with PG&E and the state to invest in our electrical infrastructure; and supporting the expansion of broadband infrastructure throughout our rural communities.”
