February 7, 2021 Weekly Update #6

 

Monday

Monday was my first meeting as a LAFCO representative for the County of Mendocino. We had an update from Beth Salomon from the Russian River Flood Control District about drought conditions.

Monday was also the first day of Black History Month. I co-sponsored a Proclamation with Supervisor Haschak on the February 9th agenda honoring African American/Black History Month. I am posting information about Black History each day on my Facebook page so make sure that you take a look. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/mo4mendo

Supervisor Williams and I joined in a meeting with the area health care clinics to talk about the VaccinateMendo.com and how it could be used to find people that want to be vaccinated.

 

Tuesday

On Tuesday I helped at the City of Ukiah vaccine clinic. They were administering second doses to teachers and school district staff. Right now the Ukiah Unified School District plans on re-opening some elementary class rooms by the end of February for hybrid in person learning so its very important that we make sure the teachers are protected. Here is the link to the UUSD Safe Reopening Plan: https://www.uusd.net/apps/news/article/1382337

 

Wednesday

On Wednesday I had a Zoom orientation with the Clerk of the Board Staff. Starting a new job during a pandemic is certainly interesting. It can be a little challenging to figure out who does what. I met with three Clerk of the Board staff to hear which assignments they each have. Of course its not the same as meeting in person but I think I'm getting the hang of it. I'm glad they are willing to help me until I can get it figured out!

After my meeting I went to volunteer at the vaccine clinic at the fairgrounds but everything was so well organized and managed there wasn't anything for me to do. There have been a lot of improvements since I first started volunteering to help at the vaccine clinics. The CEO had to lobby at the State level for additional vaccines to make sure there were enough second doses so as we move forward there will be plenty of vaccines for everyone that wants them. It seems as though with the Fairgrounds Clinic, the Adventist Health/Clinic system and the City of Ukiah vaccine events we should be able to stand up as many clinics as we have vaccines for.

 

Thursday

Thursday February 4th was a special day! My youngest daughter turned 11! Of course we also had work to do but I really had to share that!

Thursday was my 7:15am Coffee and Conversation meeting, feel free to join in next week! The Zoom link is below.

The Mendocino Business and Government Leaders focused on Economic Recovery and what Mendocino County needs to move forward. After the meeting I had a call with Chiah Rodrigues from Arcanna Farms and Mendocino Generations. Chiah is a legacy cultivator, who's family has been in Mendocino County Cannabis for Generations. We talked about what small farmers need to get through Phase 1 of the Mendocino Cannabis Ordinance. I was able to drop in (virtually, of course) to the Mendocino Childhood Trauma Action Team. This is a group of service providers that get together to discuss collaborating in the most efficient ways to support our vulnerable youth population.

In the afternoon I dropped by the Economic Development Corporation Executive Committee Meeting to hear about Phoenix's plans for the agency moving forward.

Supervisor Williams and I heard feedback from some of the local reporters about what information they would like to hear from the County and how often. There are plenty of ways to improve at this point so I welcome the feedback and trying to figure out how to communicate with the public.

 

Friday

On Friday I had a virtual meeting with the Information Technology team. There is a lot of work to do to get Mendocino County comfortable relying on technology to get the information out to its constituents. This has been highlighted in the last several years with the fires and of course now the pandemic. The more proactive we can be the better.

 

Saturday

One of my daughters favorite things to do is go to the beach so we went over to Mendocino on Saturday and built a fort and let her pug play in the waves. Before we headed home we tried out the Emerald Dolphin Miniature Golf Course. It was a beautiful day but we've both got a lot more work to do on our miniature golf skills.

 

Sunday

Today was spent with Super Bowl Snacks and more agenda prep. I work on the agenda prep each day and finalize my notes the night before. Here is what's on the agenda this week:

Weekly Update #5 - 1/31/2021

Posted on January 31, 2021 at 11:45 PM Comments comments ()

January 31, 2021  Weekly Update #5

Supervisors have A LOT of meetings. Here are some of the meetings I attended this week. 

 

Monday

I had a Monday morning meeting with the Waste Management staff to get an update on their contracts and how they work with the County of Mendocino. I have not worked with Waste Management in the past as the City of Ukiah uses C&S Waste Solutions as their waste hauler.

I also had an Introduction with Hillside Health Clinic's new Executive Director Scott McFarland and Jill Damian the Chief Operations Officer. Of course, I would rather have these meetings in person but it's still important to get to know everyone and learn about their organizations and how they interact with the County.

On Monday we had a limited Board Meeting here are the outcomes from my perspective:

3. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS AND MISCELLANEOUS 

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS AGENDA

✅ receive the presentation and continue work on the project approved

3a) Discussion and Possible Action Including Direction to County Staff to Continue Work on the CSA 3 Benefit Zone Pilot Program (Sponsors: Supervisor Haschak and Supervisor Gjerde) 

✅ give direction to the ad hoc and staff to move forward with Phase 3 and establish a procedure for Phase 1 operators to continue operating in their current location regardless of Zone and size unless they were in an opt-out or Sunset zone. Pause conversation about outdoor cultivation of six plants for another time, continue with the rest of the recommendations of the ad hoc and Planning Commission to bring back the info to the BOS within 40 days

3b) Discussion and Possible Action including Direction to Staff and Requesting the Planning Commission Review and Make Its Report and Recommendation to the Board of Supervisors Within Forty Days on (1) Draft Amendments to Mendocino County Code Regarding Commercial Cannabis Cultivation; and (2) Draft Amendments to Mendocino County Code Regarding Commercial Cannabis Facilities and Cannabis and Other Special Events (Sponsor: Cannabis Ad Hoc Committee of Supervisors Williams and Haschak)

ADJOURNMENT 

 

Wednesday

On Wednesday I attended my first Behavioral Health Advisory Board as a Supervisor. I have been attending those meetings while I was campaigning so it was good to be back again. 

The City of Ukiah has contracted with Walk & Bike Mendocino to update their Active Transportation Plan, so I attended that meeting to weigh in on what I know the community has asked for. Also, I got an EBike as a Christmas Gift and I would love to have safer ways to get around town. Unfortunately, I missed the Measure B meeting because I was at an MTA Meeting, but here is the YouTube link so you can watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6H6RNc8Xqrs I am still trying to figure out how the Measure B Committee works and I'm not on the Ad Hoc but I am trying to make sure I ask good questions so if you have feedback please let me know. 

Did you know that you can write to the Mendocino Transit Authority and request routes that might be helpful It's called the Unmet Needs List. I am curious how many people reading this have ridden the MTA let me know why or why not. 

I had a meeting about Tiny Houses and how they could fit in to the Mendocino County Zoning Code to create more housing in our rural community. If you are interested in Tiny Homes I suggest you check out Lindsey Wood on Youtube: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdZ1IeLgnWU

Wednesday the team from the County Project Homekey held a meeting. This was a community meeting to hear from the neighbors and gather feedback. They launched a website. I encourage you to check it out and ask questions and give your feedback. The team has thought of many things but I'm sure they would appreciate your ideas. More information is being added every week so please let me know if you see any key points missing. http://projecthomekeymendocino.org/

 

Thursday

Every Thursday morning I start the day with "Coffee and Conversation" this is a half hour Zoom from 7:15a-7:45a, you can come as you are and there is no set agenda. We talk about whatever is on your mind. This Thursday we talked about the Project Homekey meeting and the future of Cannabis in Mendocino County. 

During Thursdays Mendocino Business and Government Leaders meeting we spent much of our time discussing the vaccine roll out and talking about how we can remind people to make sure that they are still practicing good hygiene habits. Right now we are not meeting our minimum testing numbers with Optum Serve so we need to make sure that we are encouraging people to get tested so we don't lose this resource. Please look forward to more information on social media channels about testing and the Mask Up Mendo message and share with your friends. 

For several years I have been on the Mendocino Advisory Board of the Workforce Alliance of the North Bay. I met with the team from Sonoma and Mendocino Counties to discuss my new role as a Supervisor. There are many resources available through this agency for both employers and job seekers so I look forward to sharing more information with you all. 

I attended he Countywide Oversight Board for the Mendocino County Successor Agency. I hope to be appointed by the Board at our next regular meeting as the County of Mendocino Representative. 

 

Friday

Friday morning I had the opportunity to talk with some of the folks from CalPellets the Mendocino Forest Products wood pellet plant in Calpella. We discussed the process that they have had with the Air Quality Control Board and want to work to schedule a field trip with the Climate Action Mendocino group to have some questions answered. 

In the afternoon I met with two members of the Friends of the Ukiah Library to talk about the consultants that are doing a needs assessment of the Ukiah Library. 

My other meetings on Friday afternoon included the North Coast Railroad Authority Special Closed Session meeting and a conversation on how to support pregnant women addicted to opioids and how we can work together as a community to build a better future for their children. 

 

The most important news of the weekend though: 

I became a GRANDMA!! 

Baby Teagan Maria Mendoza was born 1/29/21 and she's the most perfect little angel you have ever seen! 

 

 

Have a successful week!

Weekly Update #4 - 1/24/2021

Posted on January 25, 2021 at 12:10 AM Comments comments ()

After I was elected I was speaking to my mom about what my job is as a Supervisor. She asked me if I just go to an office from 9-5 on weekdays or what my job is? Well I have never been one to leave a job on Friday at 5 o'clock and forget about it until Monday. That is definitely not the way that I approach my role as a Supervisor. My "job" is to work for you, but in my opinion we are a team. I'm not doing this alone, we are in it together. Each week I will provide you with an update about what I am working on. This way you will be able to keep up with what I'm working on to see if there are topics you are interested in that you want me to provide more information about or give your feedback on. I have scheduled a meeting for every Thursday at 7:15am and the Second Sunday of the Month at 11am. I can add more meetings as needed as I did today. So make sure you check on my website for updates MaureenMulheren.Com or follow me on Facebook for notifications.

 

 

Monday

Much of my time right now is spent working on ways to get out information about vaccines and answering calls about vaccine questions. You can now use www.vaccinatemendo.com to register for emails that will alert you when there is a clinic coming up. This is not a website coming from the County. Supervisor Williams and I worked on this to get the word out to our constituents. I am glad that there are so many people that are interested in getting the vaccine but its very important that you sign up only when its your tier. The County website for vaccines is live and updated with vaccine distribution information. So far 6,700 residents have been vaccinated with a first dose and 320 with a second dose. This is only the vaccines that have come through Public Health and does not account for the vaccines that were distributed through the hospital system, the pharmacies or the Native American Health Clinics. It is updated on Fridays or as necessary to post upcoming vaccine clinics. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-coronavirus/covid-19-vaccinations

 

Tuesday

On Tuesday I attended the Russian River Watershed Association Work Plan meeting with the Mendo team. This is where I can advocate for equal resources in Mendocino County to make sure we are receiving the resources to insure we have clean water, work on habitat restoration and encourage watershed enhancement along the Russian River.

For quite a few years I have been attending meetings of the Safe RX Coalition. It is so important that our community have conversations about the use of opioids and how to combat to work to create a community free from opioid abuse. If you would like to learn more about this group please visit the website. https://www.saferxmendocino.com/en/our-coalition

 

Wednesday

I was invited to attend the Children's Health Committee Meeting. Much of this meeting was focused on a letter being circulated by local pediatricians about the desire to reopen schools as quickly as possible.

The Library Advisory Board met on Wednesday. This is a group of library staff and partners from all of the libraries across the County. This is a very active group of local residents. I love to check in and see what they are up to. There are many things that can be said about sales tax but certainly the local libraries have been able to leverage the additional sales tax to truly turn around the reputation of the libraries and provide a public service.

I love meetings. Maybe a little too much. On Wednesday I simultaneously attended the Ukiah City Council Meeting as well as a Russian River Clean Up Meeting. I can't wait to share more about the clean up happening in March I hope you will join us in making sure that we keep our waterways free of trash and debris.

 

Thursday

During the campaign I continued to have a coffee meeting although we were in a Shelter in Place and could not go to Schat's for the KC Meadows "Meet the Editor" meetings as I have for the last 6 years. This Thursday I had a Coffee and Conversation meeting alone. Sometimes one person comes, sometimes three and sometimes no one. But I do hold that space for anyone that wants to spend the wee hours catching up on what is going on in the County.

The Mendocino Business and Government Leaders meeting this week was focused on the vaccine rollout (see websites above) and making sure that the State and Federal grants get out to as many local businesses as possible.

One thing it seems not many people are talking about is the Drought. I hopped on to the Russian River Frost Program and Water Use Measuring, Reporting and Conversation meeting to listen in to how farmers and ranchers are managing water use and what the future looks like. Have I mentioned that I love meetings?

As a new member to the board I was assigned as the alternate to the Area on Aging for Lake and Mendocino County. As you probably have guessed the major topic was the vaccine roll out and how do we make sure that our most vulnerable residents (our seniors) are getting the information about the vaccine clinics and how they can get a shot if they'd like to have one.

Although I've been on several tours of the Flow Cannabis Institute it was nice to go out and see how they are mitigating Covid concerns with social distancing, testing and safety precautions. As the State of California and Mendocino County navigate the cannabis industry its incredibly important to keep a pulse on what is happening with these organizations. If you'd like to schedule a tour or phone conversation I am happy to chat just shoot me an email or a text.

I am on the Ukiah Unified School District Parent Advisory committee as a parent. We met on Thursday night to hear about the roll out of a new safety plan (due to changing regulations) for the possible return to in person learning. This week the School District will host several community meetings to share this information with the community. Please visit their website for more information. https://www.uusd.net/apps/news/article/1372365

 

Friday

On Friday morning I had a chance to (virtually) meet the team of staff and volunteers that support the Mendocino County Museum. I had only ever been to the Museum once and I learned so much in the short hour that we had to spend together. This is another great team of volunteers doing work to support learning and culture in our community. They are doing so much work even though its virtual. Check out their awesome projects on their website: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/cultural-services-agency/museum

Much of my afternoon was spent fielding many phone calls and hearing from constituents about about the Phase 3 Ordinance. Until there is a meeting I just need to take feedback. Tabulate my questions and be prepared to ask the right questions during the meeting. I look forward to Monday because there are many questions. I was receiving so many individual calls and Facebook comments that I decided to add a meeting to my Sunday afternoon to gather feedback and hear concerns all at once.

 

Saturday

On Saturday I went for a hike at Lake Mendocino. This wasn't technically Supervisor related as I was just spending time with my daughters but its also great to monitor lake levels in person and even when its low I'm always impressed at this back yard treasure. https://www.spn.usace.army.mil/Missions/Recreation/Lake-Mendocino/

In between family time I had a lot of Agenda Review to get done on Saturday which included going back and listening to the October 2020 BOS meeting on Phase 3 of the cannabis cultivation ordinance.

 

Sunday

I spent the morning planning for February 14th Allies for Equity meeting. I am excited to celebrate Black History Month by talking about People of Color in Mendocino County. I'm working on lining up some great panelists so please save the date for February 14th at 11am (yeah, yeah its Valentine's Day your sweetie can join you. This is important)

As I mentioned because I was getting so much feedback on social media and so many letters were coming in regarding a social media post I scheduled a Zoom meeting about the Phase 3 Ordinance. At one point there were 44 people in the meeting to discuss the ordinance including the option of moving from a 100 sq ft limitation on personal plants to 6 plant limits as well as much discussion on the Phase 1 applicants that don't appear to have a path forward. The Phase 3 Ordinance has some important turning points in it so I look forward to the public discussion tomorrow but hearing this feedback helped me better understand where people are coming from on both sides of the cannabis conversation.

Weekly Update #3 - 1/17/2021

January 17, 2021  Weekly Update #3

Monday: 

At the beginning of the pandemic I was really worried about making sure people had enough food; with reduced paychecks and not being in school to get lunches and snacks. I partnered with Lucky Grocery store to pick up their foods that they might have otherwise had to throw away. Which also speaks to my heart to reduce food waste. Every Monday and Thursday I continue to pick up the food and take it where it can be used best ie Plowshares, Ukiah Food Bank, Building Bridges Homeless Day Center

 

A lot of what you do as an elected official is try to figure out what is happening for your constituents so I worked with Barbara Moad to figure out if the Carl Moyer Grants have been distributed (they haven't so stay tuned)

 

Monday night was also the Ukiah Vecinos en Accion meeting which I attended. I think its important to be able to connect the dots between the County and our volunteer organizations like UVA. They did have some questions about the vaccines so I was glad that I was there to be able to answer them or to be able to seek answers. 

 

Tuesday: 

On Tuesday I volunteered to work at the City of Ukiah Vaccine Pop Up. They vaccinated close to 300 Ukiah Unified School District employees. Everyone had time slots in 15 minute increments. It went extremely well and every single staff member was 15 minute early and there was a 100% attendance record! 5 Gold Stars for every staff member!

 

Wednesday: 

On Wednesday I volunteered at the Vaccine Clinic at Carl Purdy Hall. On this day there were hundreds of people that were lined up in the rain to receive the vaccine. I helped inside to bring the nursing staff their equipment for vaccinating the people that had appointments. While it is a good thing that so many people wanted to receive the vaccine we certainly do not want our older residents standing in the rain to receive it. There needs to be an online registration system for members of the public, currently the appointments were made by the employers relevant to the tiers. The website is supposed to be up at the end of this week and will allow for online scheduling for County initiated vaccine clinics. Keeping in mind that the hospitals and clinic partners may have a different system for scheduling appointments. The County has a webpage now that will show you how many vaccines have been distributed https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-coronavirus/covid-19-vaccinations

 

Building Bridges is the homeless day shelter and over night emergency shelter located at 1045 S State Street. Once a month they have a meeting with community partners that are serving the clients that are guests at B2. I attend those meetings one time per month (currently virtually). This month they discussed the quarantine due to active cases of Covid-19 in the shelter and the plans for reopening and best practices. The goal is to be able to get people in to showers and do their laundry and also make sure they protect the overnight shelter guests. They will have to rely on the partners to help with this to keep the shelter guests and the B2 staff safe. 

 

Building Bridges also hosts a meeting once per month for the community that is in the evening. This is the opportunity for residents, businesses and property owners to collaborate and come up with solutions to improve the neighborhood impact. The main topics were abandoned cars and how to pay to have them removed when guests can't afford to repair them. Also about making sure that regular trash pick ups occur throughout the neighborhood, the day of the month has not been decided but when I hear more I will share with you. I encourage those with complaints about the project to come to this meeting to work towards solutions or at least understanding on both sides. 

 

I was invited to be on the "Like it or Not Podcast". Carter Lane and Drew Nicoll started this podcast in 2020 and they invited me to come on and talk about my new role as a County Supervisor, homelessness and Covid. Here is the link if you'd like to check it out: https://www.stitcher.com/show/like-it-or-not

 

 

Thursday:

 

You can catch me every Thursday morning on Zoom at 7:15am 

The link is to my private Zoom room (see below) or visit the Facebook event by clicking on this image. 

 

This Thursday I was joined by two people and we spoke mostly about the Covid response and the vaccine roll out and a little bit about the Building Bridges Community Meeting. I'm happy to discuss whatever comes up, these are casual conversations with no planned agenda. Please feel free to attend! 

 

On Thursday I also attended the Economic Development and Finance Corporation, we appointed a new Executive Director. Phoenix Trent. I'm looking forward to collaboration and new energy for this organization. More to come!

 

This was also my first Inland Water Power Commission meeting. This was one of the few boards I had not served on as a council person so it will be interesting! I'm the alternate for this commission and looking forward to learning more about how the organization operates and the best path forward. 

 

Friday: 

On Friday I was back at the City Conference Center to hep with the registration for more of the UUSD staff members, as well as College employees. It was a beautiful day so people were able to sit outside and wait for their 15 minutes of observation time to be completed. 

It feels  great to be able to help get folks on the way back to some type of "normal" 

 

Saturday:

You may have not noticed my name on an Adopt A Highway sign but yes, I have a "Highway Baby". About four years ago someone had called me and said how terrible Highway 101 looked coming in to Ukiah and they asked "Why won't someone do something about it?" Well I found out that the quickest way to "do something about it" was to adopt the highway and clean it myself. I had five great volunteers come out and we physically distanced/masked and picked up litter. Thank you Brandy, Michelle, Janice, Stacy and Andrew. I will be posting the rest of the dates to my social media pages and website if you'd like to join in, just let me know!

On Wednesday I had the opportunity to volunteer for the Covid Vaccine Clinic at Carl Purdy Hall in Ukiah.

This was a great way for me to understand the process and see how I can support staff as we move forward

with a need to ramp up to having multiple clinics per day in various locations.

 

 

You can catch me every Thursday morning on Zoom at 7:15am

The link is to my private Zoom room (see below) or visit the Facebook event by clicking on this image.

 

When the Shelter In Place first began in March myself and Jason Lyles from Senator McGuire's Office gathered a group of local electeds and agency staff as well as community partners to meet to discuss the Coronavirus and the economy. We have continued to meet weekly and it has provided a good opportunity to cate continuity in economic recovery across the County. This meeting will be ongoing and discusses relevant topics. The roll out of the vaccine, updated testing data and the Deadline being Extended for First Round of Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant Program Applications dominated this hour long conversation.

 

At noon on Thursday I met with the Project Homekey County Team to get caught up on next steps. There will be a community meeting at the end of the month to receive community feedback and answer questions. This project is located at 555 S Orchard Ave and will become supportive housing for families and homeless individuals. I will post an update about when the meeting is and how to log in as soon as I have it. I have watched the Board of Supervisors meeting regarding this project and the McGuire Town Hall and although I heard it a few times I think its important for the community to know and be reminded that the people that will live here are not temporary and this is not a shelter. This project will not have a visible impact on street level homelessness. The target population for this housing is current residents of hotels in the Project Roomkey program and people living in cars etc. There will be more to come on this project. I know this has happened quickly and I am glad that the County will be managing it for at least the first few years. I hope that people will attend their meeting to see if their questions have been addressed and if not work towards ways to address possible challenges.

 

Thursday afternoon I drove to Laytonville for a tour of Henry's Original. I had never visited their cannabis facility and its a good idea to understand the goals and objectives of everyone in the industry. If you'd like to set up a tour please let me know. That goes for people that don't want the industry as well. I'm a hands on kind of person and a site visit helps me make better decisions.

 

Thursday night myself and newly elected First District Supervisor were on KZYX and interviewed by Sarah Reith. We discussed our first meeting and our thoughts for the County moving forward. Here is the link in case you missed it: KZYX Open Lines

 

On Saturday I had a Zoom meeting with Rotary and Clean River Alliance to talk about partnerships moving forward to make sure we keep trash out of our waterways. Stay tuned for a big clean up in March. I visited the Ukiah Farmers Market to bring hand sanitizer and masks to the vendors. I also attended the Climate Action Mendocino meeting which is a grassroots group in Ukiah I’ve been involved with for a couple of years.

 

Today was my Second Sunday - Open Door Meeting. I had about five people on and off join in the conversation to talk about everything from vaccines to Project Homekey. If you missed this meeting but would like me to join a few of your friends on Zoom please let me know otherwise the next meeting will be February 14th at 11am.

City Council Resignation 12/31/20

Posted on January 2, 2021 at 11:25 AM Comments comments ()

Maureen "Mo" Mulheren - Ukiah City Council Member is with Mo Mulheren.

This evening I officially resigned from the Ukiah City Council. I served the community as a Council Member for six years and as the 2018 Mayor. On Monday 1/4/20 at 11:30am I will be sworn in as the Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County.

Some of the tasks that we tackled on the Council seemed small and insignificant, others seemed like big changes to our community but they were all important. I will be eternally grateful for my relationship with my colleagues as well as for our friendship. I have grown as a leader with the support of my fellow Council members, the community and the MWPC team and I look forward to serving the residents and community as the Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County.

I will continue to work hard for our community to build connection and create positive change. For those that are interested I will keep regular updates on my Facebook page @ Mo4Mendo and on my website at www.MaureenMulheren.com

Best wishes for a Happy New Year,

Mo Mulheren

Holiday Food Drive

Posted on December 15, 2020 at 3:15 PM Comments comments ()

Earlier this year, Maureen Mulheren, Former Mayor and Ukiah City Councilmember used her birthday to support the community by doing a fundraiser and food drive for the Ukiah Food Bank. “Food security is something that no one should struggle with. Every family should know where their next meal is coming from—it’s a simple thing for the community to be able to help with. It also empowers us when we support each other. That’s why I chose the Food Bank.”

 

Mulheren decided to add a Holiday Food Drive to her schedule. On December 21st, she will be driving around the Ukiah area with a mask, gloves and hand sanitizer to pick up donations from the doorsteps of participating residents. She will then deliver the items straight to the Food Bank to eliminate the need for people to travel there themselves. Each year the Ukiah Food Bank has a holiday fundraising drive through the Ukiah Daily Journal. The goal for this year’s drive is $85,000, and donations can be mailed to or dropped off at the Ukiah Food Bank, 888 N. State St., or mailed to The Ukiah Daily Journal, 617 S. State St., Ukiah, CA 95482.

 

If you'd like for Mulheren to do a safe and sanitized pantry pick up you can email her at [email protected] or text or call her at 707-391-3664 to be added to the list.

Hi friend, I have exciting news. You know the expression "Don't quit your day job"? Well..... I'm doing just that! I love my insurance business and my clients but I think I have an important role to fill at the Board of Supervisors for Mendocino County and I am going to direct my attention to the upcoming election in March of 2020. I wanted to reach out to you right away before you hear any rumors. I will continue working to close out my business to make sure that my clients have all the support that they need. In the mean time I look forward to sharing more about this exciting adventure with you. Please make sure you like and follow https://www.facebook.com/mo4mendo Have a successful day! - Mo
