Dear Friend, 

Tonight, the full City Council will be voting to kick-start the City's 3-year paving plan. We all have been waiting long enough and are ready to see our Measure KK dollars used to pave our streets!

1) I urge all of my Council colleagues to vote to have the paving plan implemented. 

2) In addition to the streets that are incorporated in the 3-year paving plan, the Administration allocated $470,000 as discretionary funds for each Councilmember for street paving in their district. On Tuesday, April 23rd at the Public Works Committee, I fought for and won an amendment that more than double District Councilmember’s discretionary fund to $1 million for each Council District and $500K for the At-Large Member.

Background: The 3-year paving plan was develop under a new metric that takes into account equity, density, and street condition - all very important factors. However, that leaves serious gaps in improving our infrastructure in District 4 and that is why I fought for an amendment for an increase in dollars for paving in each Council District.

3) Equally important.The Administration has just let me know that they will be conducting a POTHOLE BLITZ (12-hour work days w/ extra crews) in District 4 on June 4, 5 and 6th!! SO PLEASE, report your potholes by calling 311 or using the app. Please share this email with your neighbors to spread the word of this Call To Action!  

In service, 

Sheng Thao
Councilmember, District 4
