This year end/new year message is dedicated to Third District Block Captains whose sacred work has given strength to fire survivors – friends, family, neighbors and even complete strangers – during their darkest hours. You are my heroes.
2018. A list of words that describe the year following our 2017 wildfires might include: tough, trying, exhausting, memorable, maddening, productive, purposeful, frustrating, enlightening, frightening, and caring. For my staff and myself, a deep source of inspiration has been the community response to perhaps the most life-changing event many of us have ever faced.
