Weekly Update - March 23

Well, although we are sheltering in place at home. There are still plenty of things we can do to help our community.

My weekly newsletter will be modified from its original format during this time of uncertainty as our country struggles to get ahead of the Coronavirus. 

In my last newsletter I mentioned that I had created a Facebook group called Ukiah Area: Neighbors Helping Neighbors. https://www.facebook.com/groups/UkiahAreaNeighborHelpingNeighbor/ The group has grown to over 1,776 Members in just one week! We are able to support each other with ideas to help keep the kids busy, safe places to take a walk and some folks have been able to find diaper wipes and dog food. This is a very stressful time for our community and I'm asking you to lean in and help where you can. If you need help please, reach out. I am ready and willing to drop off toilet paper, deliver dog food or just chat on the phone about what is happening in our community. I'm never too busy to support you and your family however I can. My direct cell phone is 707-391-3664

Through the week and over the weekend I have been on calls with the City Manager, Senator McGuire's office and various regional and State partners about how elected officials can best serve our community at this time. I am working hard to keep shopping local in the front of our communities minds and lend support however I can to our local businesses and senior community. Is there something missing that would help you? How are you getting your information? What would you like updates on? 

This Thursday I will be hosting a virtual Facebook live on my @ Mo4Mendo Facebook page. Look for the event called "Coffee and Conversation". Last week I was joined by about a dozen people and we talked about everything from COVID to the Census to the old days when I watched Romper Room on television. Here is a link to the video in case you want to catch up Thursday March 19th Coffee and Conversation  

Here is the link so you join me this Thursday morning at 8am with a cup of coffee or tea to catch up and have a casual conversation about the community. Coffee and Conversation 

I think it is really important that our community have up to date accurate and transparent information so please indulge me as I share some important links with you.

Here is a link to the County of Mendocino website where you can find the most current relevant information about the COVID-19 and how it is affecting our community as well as the County Public Health Facebook page. 



The CDC and the California Department of Public Health are providing regular updates and important information about COVID-19 so please bookmark these pages for future reference. 



I look forward to being in touch,

Be well.
