Jordan Valenzuela: Cultivating arts and culture will maintain community identity

Jordan Valenzuela, Redding City Council candidate

Occupation: Business Owner
Age: 30

Candidate statement:

“I am a third generation Redding resident with two young children. I have been a business owner for over eight years. I am an active Chamber member, have held many leadership positions in my local networking group, and have also volunteered many hours in our community.

Redding Chamber recently awarded me the “Rising Star Award.” Growing up, I have never seen crime and homelessness as prevalent as it is today.

I will maintain communication with the county to ensure criminals are held accountable. Utilizing city resources, I hope to support mental health and other programs, giving ex-offenders options to reenter society with purpose.

I strive to address homelessness by advocating for affordable housing in appropriate destinations and thoroughly evaluating and providing feedback to improve the processes of permitting. As a small business advocate, I know generating successful revenue will benefit our city through local business taxes without increasing taxes on residents.

Cultivating arts and culture will maintain our community-oriented identity and flourish our local economy, creating more opportunities for our children to raise their families. To preserve Redding’s identity, I humbly ask for your vote. votejordan.info”
