I want to take time to thank the members of the Oakley City Council: Pat Anderson, Jim Frazier, Carol Rios, Bruce Connelly and Kevin Romick. Our City Council works very hard and puts in many long hours. I have personally seen them in service and we are fortunate to have dedicated people that care so much for the community on this council.
Just two weeks ago I went to an evening meeting with Vice Mayor Frazier in Oakland, where we spoke to help bring a much-needed health clinic to Oakley. Recently, Vice Mayor Frazier and Councilwoman Rios came to foreclosure-prevention workshops, fighting to help keep families in their homes. Council members volunteered at Christmas to raise money and food and fed hundreds of people and provided Christmas gifts to these families.
I know the council members even donate their little council pay to community charities. These are just some of many examples of the council members giving extra time to serve the community.
Thank you and God bless them in their work!
