Biography

Hi, I’m Maureen "Mo" Mulheren, and I’m proud to announce my candidacy for Second District Supervisor. I currently serve on the Ukiah City Council and was proud to serve this past year as Mayor. After five years on Council, I’m ready to bring my dedication and local knowledge to the Board of Supervisors.

I'm asking for you vote in the upcoming primary election March 3, 2020. My goal is to win a majority outright in the primary and not go to a runoff in November. Will you support my campaign today?

Public service is my passion. I started my professional career as a clerk for the County of Mendocino and gained valuable experience working in several county departments. When I eventually left to work in my family’s local business and later start my own small business, I continued my civic engagement by volunteering for events and projects including the Ukiah Park Committee, the Ukiah Main Street Program, and as a founding member of the Ukiah Women in Business Networking Group.

Born and raised in Ukiah, I have deep roots in the community and am proud to be raising my two daughters here. Protecting their future and ensuring their quality of life motivates me everyday to advocate for our region’s economic wellbeing and natural resources.

Make a contributionendorse my campaign, or volunteer to help me get the word out. Join me in building a healthy, safe, and prosperous Mendocino County. I humbly ask for your support and your vote.

For more information, I invite you to check the calendar for community events, follow our campaign on Facebooksend me an email, or call me directly at 707-391-3664.

I am experienced, accessible, invested in our community, and ready to get to work for you. I humbly ask for your support and your vote.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

 

Economic Development: 

This is personal. As a Ukiah native, I want to make sure that my kids have the economic opportunities to thrive and continue to make Mendocino their home. At the current pace of societal, economic, and technological change, government must be responsive to the needs of our business community and create and maintain the infrastructure businesses and residents need to thrive. My work on the Ukiah State Street revitalization, City of Ukiah recycled water project, and work to bring Costco to Ukiah with its accompanying street improvements to the Talmage exit are examples of the kind of public/private partnerships I support and that are bringing positive economic results and resiliency to our region.

Communication and responsiveness are key to creating these kinds of partnerships and successes. As the county seat, Ukiah is in a unique position to work with our regional partners. I look forward to using my experience as Ukiah's Mayor to build coalitions throughout the region to ensure our economic vitality in all sectors including agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism. The cannabis industry has emerged as a key partner in our regional economic success. As Supervisor, I will work closely with the industry to continue bringing it into compliance with local and state regulations while ensuring public safety and our quality of life.

Housing for all: 

Housing for all means something different to just about anyone you ask. But in practical terms, it simply means that we need the right kind of housing for our residents at the right time in their lives: whether they're students, working people, young families trying to save for a home, or empty-nesters looking to downsize. This is where government needs to listen to the community, partner with developers, streamline services, and respond with bold solutions to meet our current and future housing needs. And make no mistake: having the right housing available at the right price is essential for local businesses to attract and retain the talent they need to grow their businesses, so that together, we can grow a vibrant local economy that benefits all.

Whole Person Wellness: 

This is why I feel called to serve. I'm keenly aware that every vote I cast or position I take as Mayor ultimately impacts the health and wellness of everyone in our community. Whether it's an infrastructure project that makes it easier to bike or walk, a recycled water project that improves our environmental resiliency, community policing policies that strengthen relationships and develop trust, or universal pre-K to put all kids on track to be lifelong learners, I understand the impact that one vote makes. As Supervisor, I will make Whole Person Wellness—mental, physical, educational, economic, and environmental—a top priority.
