Background

Jaclyn Moreno graduated with a BA in Psychology from Sacramento State University and M.S. in Psychology from San Francisco State University. Moreno has 20 years of experience as a mental health counselor and runs her own business that focuses on providing mental health services, CARE Educational Services. Jaclyn has served on Consumes CSD as President and Director since 2018 focusing on increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion [4]. During the pandemic, Moreno focused on meeting the community’s need around child care for essential workers and distance learning support for families. Moreno has spearheaded creation of the District’s first Climate Action Plan. He helped ensure transparency within local government by advocating for election reform and public participation [1]. 

Key Issues

Homelessness

Moreno intends to address the homelessness crisis by collaborating with community leaders across the district. She seeks to improve access to care, increase the number of shelters and beds, move to a Case Management Model, which has proven effective in other cities, and to hire more mental health providers [1].

Government Accountability

Moreno has fought within the Consumes CSD to implement the first ever third party vendor audit, which resulted in thousands of dollars saved for tax payers. She wishes to improve public input opportunities especially related to budgetary decision making, maintain virtual access to the Board beyond the pandemic, and increase visibility to the public by holding meetings later in the day [1].

Public Safety

Moreno wants to improve public safety by improving the resources available to law enforcement, including better training and access to mental health responders. She intends to prioritize the implementation of a 911 alternative and to improve the law enforcement response in unincorporated communities [1].

Affordable Housing

Moreno wants to prioritize lowering rent and housing prices by cutting red tape, encouraging development, building relationships between developers and nonprofits to create more market-rate and affordable housing, and focusing on mixed income housing [1].

Climate Crisis

Moreno intends to refocus on internal operations and to achieve Carbon Zero while also improving public transportation, and investing in open space and park development [1].

Economic Recovery

Moreno wants the county to invest in small businesses and wants to work closely with communities on redevelopment projects. She intends to create long term jobs by expanding and enhancing existing County programs [1].

Healthcare

Moreno wants to improve social services and mental healthcare by increasing funding for beds and providers of care for those suffering from mental health crises. She will collaborate with Community Colleges and universities to create pathways for mental health providers to find jobs [1].

Reproductive Rights

Moreno will support reproductive rights by increasing resources to increase access for local residents while also accommodating out of state visitors traveling for services. She intends to encourage the development of a health center in South county to provide reproductive services to residents [1].
