Promises Made, Promises Kept — September 14, 2016 Stone for Council 2016

Councilmember Randall Stone talks about the last four years on the Chico City Council at the Chico Chamber of Commerce Candidates Forum on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016.

Councilmember Randall Stone talks about Service Insolvency — September 14, 2016 Stone for Council 2016

"We're in a condition of Service Insolvency.  When we have overpopulated funds to a particular group or section of the City at the expense of all other elements in the City.  That's what Service Insolvency is.  So, four years ago I worked very aggressively to fix the budget and provide budget accountability.  And in that process I staunchly pushed for pension reform.  And we got that.  Under my leadership we rolled back $4 million in employee concessions - unprecedented on a $43 million General Fund Budget.


And then 2 years after that we rolled back $1.5 million of that just for pay raises for *one* bargaining group. That didn't put a single new (police or fire) boot on the ground.  That didn't fix our roads.  Last night we were talking about $14,000 that we were trying to find money for to contract out keeping the bathrooms open in Bidwell Park.  It's not that we haven't figured out how to do this.  It's that we have candidates - and there's one in particular today - who advocated for those pay raises for that one bargaining group that cost us $1.5 million."




"You know, I'm the only candidate up here who created 75-full time equivalent annualized jobs, creating affordable housing - safe, decent, and sanitary housing for people that otherwise wouldn't have homes or would be couch surfing in our community.  I'm the only one up here who has done that."

Councilmember Randall Stone talks about his positions on Homelessness and experience as the League of California Cities, Sacramento Valley Division President and his membership on the influential statewide committee on Housing, Community, and Economic Development
