Mid/South Santa Cruz County Election Forum Recap

Mid/South Santa Cruz County candidates share their housing strategies


On Thursday, September 24th Monterey Bay Economic Partnership partnered with El Pajaro Community Development Corporation (CDC) to present a Mid/South Santa Cruz County Housing Candidate Forum. Many thanks to Carmen Herrera, Executive Director of El Pajaro CDC for joining MBEP’s Housing Associate Rafael Hernandez in hosting the event.

We extend our deepest gratitude to our Watsonville City Council candidates, Jimmy Dutra, Tony Gomez, Aurelio Gonzalez, Vanessa Quiroz-Carter and Capitola City Council candidate Anthony Rovai for joining us. The candidates provided the public with their housing analysis, solutions, and best ways to move forward.

We hope this helps the community be more informed on critical housing issues. Click here to view the slides. View the candidates’ responses to our survey
