It’s August, which means the city Council is officially on legislative recess. However, legislative recess is neither a vacation nor a break. It is the time that I review the last 7 months and reflect on constituent needs, budget, and needed legislation and policy updates. 

2022 has been a busy time, and I am proud of the work my team and I have accomplished. I take seriously the responsibility of being your councilmember to improve your quality of life and that of the city. With this goal in mind, I led the City Council in:  

  • Adopting the city’s landmark updated Climate Action Plan, committing the city to net zero emissions by 2035 and 100% renewable energy by 2030;  
  • Advancing a ballot measure for the November 2022 ballot that seeks to reverse a century-old constraint on the city to deliver equitable, right-sized trash services;  
  • Gaining approval of Build Better San Diego, a citywide policy that will overhaul funding for infrastructure in our neighborhoods to maximize efficiency and better serve the increase in housing we are experiencing. 

More details on these initiatives and several others follow.
As we take a break from City Council hearings, Team LaCava continues to respond to constituents; communicate upcoming events and agendas; craft and hone policy; prepare for a busy legislative session in the fall; and assess how to better serve you. I invite you to take advantage of this time. Call, email, or schedule an appointment with us to provide feedback and share your priorities.  

While I listen to and work for you year-round, please use legislative recess as another opportunity to become, or continue to be, civically engaged and make positive change in your community.  

I look forward to hearing from you.
