Latest on libraries: My colleagues on the board of supervisors recently joined me in taking another step toward the opening of a bigger, better library in Lakeside.

The board cleared the way to buy a Woodside Avenue parcel in the heart of town for a new library. Thank you to the community for all your support as we move this important project forward.

Fighting for families: San Diego County recently rolled out a powerful new tool to help families find quality residential care for the elderly. It’s called Choose Well. It’s an online search tool and ratings system designed to guide families to the most appropriate assisted living facility for their loved one. 

I first proposed the site in 2014. About 120 facilities have volunteered to fully participate in it, with more expected to be added in coming months.
