Mayor Mike needs your vote this November for Folsom City Council District One
My commitment is the same as it has always been, I will be a loud advocate for what is great about Folsom, and most of what is amazing about Folsom happens to be in District One. I have always been a councilmember or Mayor who works to protect and enhance district one, while representing what is good for Folsom Generally. Read on for some reminders. Click on the map at left to link to an interactive map where you can zoom in and check which district you live in.
Lake Natoma gently winds through District one. It is surrounded by State park land and the Lake Natoma Trail. This trail area and Lake Natoma are a primary attraction for tourists and residents seeking outdoor activity. WE NEED TO FIND WAYS TO IMPR0VE THIS RIVER DISTRICT. Improving access and developing environmentally sensitive services are jobs 1a and 1b.
From Folsom's North border with Placer County there is a wide variety of homes and neighborhoods. We have neat and economical manufactured homes, Attractive Apartments, Horse properties and leafy streets of single family homes. There are also great parks, trails and the new Carl Sundahl Elementary school.
Hinkle Creek Nature preserve, links the central north of Folsom to Lake Natoma and serves as not just a woodsy central park for this area, but helps to anchor Folsom's commitment to preservation of natural areas for Native Flora and Fauna. Its protection and enhancement is vital.
The Area we know as Folsom has been a settlement for thousands of years. We celebrate the history of Native Americans, and the amazing diversity of immigrants who have called this place home. Folsom's Museum Complex on Sutter Street and the history displays at Black Miner's Bar are great place to learn about Folsom's place in history as a haven for Black, European, and Asian immigrants, as a jumping off point for railroads in the west, gold mining, and the first Hydro Electric Plant in the west. Call me. I'm happy to talk about this all day long. :)
The Sutter Street commercial district is the image people have of Folsom and it is the place to go for restaurants, a wide variety of shops and galleries, along with anchor destinations like Snook's Candy, Karen's Bakery, Hop Sing's and the Folsom History Museum and Pioneer Village. Look for the Saturday Farmer's market, along with lots of live music at the amphitheater and the holiday skating rink provided by the business owners association (FHDA).
The neighborhood surrounding the Sutter street commercial area has been built up over 170 years and is a delightful mix of styles and structures in Victorian through 1950's mod styles along with some one-of-kind eclectic homes. It is also home to the Granite center a last-of-its-kind 1905 school building repurposed as a start-up business incubator. This area, more than any other, gives Folsom its character and identity.
I am honored to have been endorsed by Josh Hoover & David Reid of the Folsom Cordova School Board, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, County Supervisor Sue Frost, and Roger Niello and equally excited that many of you have encouraged me and shared your opinions and suggestions.

Mike is endorsed by Former Folsom Mayors, Bob Holderness and Andy Morin, along with the Folsom Chamber of Commerce, the Sacramento Realtors Association, RegionBusiness, the SacMetro Chamber of Commerce. and Northstate BIA.

Mike can't win this race without your help. Flyering, word-of-mouth, and donating are all ways of helping us achieve our goals together.
and of course VOTE.
Folsom is special, its better, and we get to set our own standards. Lets set them high, not compete for least-worst.
We successfully completed these promised projects and achieved dramatic improvements
1. Iron Pt/E. Bidwell/US50: The solutions here need to include already planned changes to allowed turning motions, signal timing and lane spacing....and some additional travel routes getting completed.
2. Folsom Blvd signals: New intelligent signal equipment is needed sooner rather than later to achieve better flow and coordination with Rail gates. This will help with traffic from Granite Bay to US50
3. Sutter Middle School intersections. Six traffic intersection happen at Sutter Middle school, the main one where East Bidwell meets Riley needs to be completed, then each of the remaining intersections need revisions to their pedestrian crossings and signage.
4. Oak Ave at E Bidwell: reassignment of turn lanes to allow more traffic to flow on certain turn movements will help a ton.
5. Complete Saratoga Way connection from El Dorado Hills into Empire Ranch. This road when complete will act as a relief valve for Iron Pt, by allowing traffic to head directly uphill from empire ranch and enter freeway at El Dorado Hills Blvd.
We also need to stay focused on the longer term solutions to traffic congestion at US 50, East Bidwell and Iron Point. Adding Freeway entrances at Oak Ave and Empire Ranch Road. These will take a lot of money.
As Folsom's representative on the Region's Metropolitan Transit funding agency SACOG Mike has been able to help secure millions in funding for Folsom road projects already and in the next few years infrastructure and Measure A funds can provide tens of millions for these projects with consistent leadership from Mike.
**Great Idea from a Voter like you!**
It was suggested to me that we should find a way to make protected bike lanes along the travel paths to Sutter MS and Folsom MS. I whole-heartedly agree and we built a test section along Blue Ravine to test this idea.
