My Top 3 Priorities
Utilize current PD and Code Enforcement staffing to provide the best coverage possible throughout the city to ensure that Antioch is a great place to Work, Live, Play.
Contain costs while using available funding wisely. Increase city services to the public by bringing back the 40 hour work week.
The transportation improvements (widening Highway 4, E-Bart and Highway 160 improvements) makes Antioch an attractive development opportunity; now is the time for discussions with potential new business entities.
In today’s challenging economic climate, we must work smarter and make better use of limited resources. My diverse background has provided me the skills needed to navigate the current local and state economic crises, hire successful district leaders and create an environment of open communications and collaborative relationships.
My business and community service experience and lifetime knowledge of Antioch has served me well during my tenure as an AUSD Board Member. As an elected representative, I have been a voice for financial accountability, increased investment in the classroom and school site safety.
It is important to have an experienced voice on the council as we look towards future development opportunities. It is critical that our city is a safe city, public services are provided in a consistent and effective manner and that everyone, including residents, view Antioch with opportunity, respect and see current advantages and future potential.
I look forward to redirecting my experience and passion to city government as your elected representative and would appreciate your vote for Diane Gibson-Gray for Antioch City Council.
