Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

It has been an honor to serve as your Director to the Cosumnes Community Services District (Cosumnes CSD) for the past eight years.  I have tirelessly worked to represent you, the people of Elk Grove and Galt, with distinction, honor and pride.  I am seeking re-election to the Cosumnes CSD Board so I can continue to represent your needs and interests and further establish the Cosumnes CSD as the region’s premier parks, recreation, fire and emergency services agency.

While on the Cosumnes CSD Board, I worked closely with staff and the community to ensure that I am providing policies and passing budgets that are fair and responsible.  I worked with local leaders to revitalize neighborhood parks like McConnell Park in Hampton Village and worked with local organizations and comunity leaders to create culturally stimulating events and programs that are fun for everyone. 

More important, I will continue to fight for the men and women of the Cosumnes Fire Department so they have the resources and tools necessary to keep us safe and serve our community with commitment, courage, and valor.

My name is Rod Brewer and I would be honored to have your trust and your vote this year.  Thank you for your consideration.
