Supporting Small Business and Creating Local Jobs
Small business is the backbone of the community and a major source of employment. We must continue to provide a positive environment for local employers so they can focus on expanding their business and creating more jobs. Jill has been a champion for securing resources so small businesses can repair the damage left behind by the 2014 earthquake. She will continue to promote a positive climate for growing the local economy.
Promoting Environmental Responsibility
Preserving Napa’s natural surroundings and encouraging environmentally responsible policies have been major priorities for Mayor Techel. Through her leadership, Napa has increased use of recycled water and local renewable energy resources. Her advocacy in Washington, D.C. helped secure funds to provide badly needed flood protection upgrades to Downtown Napa.
Balancing the Budget
Napa’s finances remain strong, and we’ve been able to preserve key investments into our infrastructure and public safety agencies. Responsible management of the city’s budget has been a consistent principle during Jill’s time in office. Through efficient management of taxpayer money, Napa is able to maintain affordable taxes and quality public services.
