During the recent economic downturn, Michelle has been committed to ensuring that every taxpayer dollar is spent wisely and with the most benefit to the constituents she serves. As revenues have returned to the District, she continued to be a strong advocate for responsible spending and efficient government. Public safety is a high priority and Michelle recently voted to add an additional ambulance to ensure a high level of service is being provided to the community.
Michelle has also worked closely with the business community and is an active member of both the Elk Grove Chamber and Sacramento Metro Chamber. In addition, she has worked with the Old Town Elk Grove Foundation on the annual Dickens Street Faire.
