To The Honorable Speaker Perez:


I am writing to express my support for Monterey County Supervisor Jane Parker in her application to serve on the California Coastal Commission. I understand that you have a competitive pool of nominated candidates to select from. I believe that Supervisor Parker is the best fit for this important appointment.  


As a (PICK A DESCRIPTOR OR TWO THAT FITS YOU -  Here are some examples- longtime environmental activist/former elected official/women’s right advocate/former colleague/social justice advocate/LGBTQ rights advocate), I respect Supervisor Parker’s dedication and commitment to listening to all sides of an issue and making informed decisions.


There are fierce pressures on the environment, particularly along the coast.  Supervisor Parker is a person who will respect the desires of coastal communities to develop, while at the same time even-handedly enforce the laws that protect the coastal environment and coastal access for all Californians.  Supervisor Parker’s District spans coastal and inland communities dominated by working families of diverse backgrounds, including large portions of the City of Salinas.  She has a long history of working for social justice organizations that recognize the influence of environment on the health and wellbeing of such communities. 


I know that the Coastal Commission is a demanding and sometimes contentious place; I am confident that Supervisor Parker would serve as ably there as she does on our local Board of Supervisors.


Thank you for your consideration.
