RUTH M. VREELAND Council member, City of Monterey
I have had the privilege to teach in Monterey for 33 years. Our children grew up here, and I am deeply dedicated to serving all the citizens of Monterey. Working together, we have accomplished much to keep our historical Monterey special. There is still work to be done, and I look forward to working with you.
KEEPING MONTEREY SAFE Public safety is my highest priority for the city. I'm dedicated to protecting salaries and funding for police, fire, health, and other essential LOCAL services.
KEEPING MONTEREY SOLVENT
As your council member, I have made sure that the
city budget is balanced every year. Even in these tough
economic times, the city has not cut into its reserves.
KEEPING MONTEREY SCENIC We need to finish the Window to the Bay, part of our efforts to keep Monterey scenic. Our precious quality of life has to be protected. I want to continue to provide places throughout the city for residents to enjoy the land, beach, and open space. Protecting our historical assets and beauty remains a vital goal for me.
KEEPING MONTEREY SPECIAL
We are all proud of our Neighborhood Improvement
Program that turns tourism money back to the
neighborhoods. We have many project still to do, and I
want to make sure that neighborhoods remain a top
The City continues to explore programs and provide
assistance to the school district. I am also eager to
involve our youth in the Youth Task Force, the
Community of Caring, and the youth volunteer
programs. Likewise, Monterey has developed
nationally recognized partnerships with our military
community to cut costs and keep our installations here.
I would be honored to continue to represent you on the Monterey City Council to keep our city SAFE, SOLVENT, SCENIC and SPECIAL.
