Lyons: Pyska is well informed and has a plan

District 5 candidate for supervisor, Jessica Pyska, in the Sept. 14 candidates’ forum was encouraging and inspiring.

Pyska has been working for years on community projects and fire safe issues. She is aware of grants that are available to our county and has the knowledge and energy to go after state and federal financing which will aid our county in dealing with both socio-economic challenges and the ever-present wildfire threats.

She is aware of pressing issues facing all of the communities in District 5 that she will represent. I live in Jago Bay, which is in close proximity to the Clear Lake Riviera. There is great concern for the safety of residents of the Riviera community because of the threat of wildfire and Jessica has answers and ideas.

She isn’t content to say: “Well, that’s going to be hard to do and could take a really long time.”

That phrase is not in her repertoire; she is already involved with the Lake County Risk Reduction Authority for fire risk reduction; she serves on the Blue Ribbon committee’s socioeconomic subcommittee and also has a keen knowledge of economic development grants and small business loan programs.

She will represent all areas of the diverse District 5 communities and will address both economic development and fire safety in the whole county.

I encourage everyone to listen to or watch the forum which is available on YouTube: LCCOC Sup 5 Candidate Forum 9-14-20. You’ll see what I mean. Jessica has hope, ideas, energy and experience. She is ready to take Lake County in a new and positive direction. I encourage a vote for her on Nov. 3, for District 5 supervisor.

It’s time for a change.

Roberta Lyons lives in Lower Lake, California.
