I'm Dilenna Harris.

dilenna-vacaville-4Vacaville really is a special place to live.

We’ve kept the charm of a small town, while attracting exciting new employers and opportunities for our residents. We’ve accomplished that by making public safety a priority, investing wisely in our infrastructure and services, and through partnerships that draw neighborhoods and the community together.

The recession and its aftermath was difficult for cities throughout California, but we survived it by cutting spending and adopting sound financial management. We’ve maintained the high level of service provided by Vacaville’s public safety team, and new technology has allowed them to get even closer to the neighborhoods they serve. City programs for youth, families and seniors are making a difference, and we’re expanding access to resources through our local non-profits.

We’re encouraging infill development over sprawl in our new General Plan. Opportunity Hill will get a makeover, as new traditions like the Creekwalk Concerts and Food Truck Mania add to an already thriving downtown.

There’s more to be done to protect what’s unique about Vacaville for our kids and grandkids, and I’m committed to doing the work and making the tough decisions.

I hope you’ll join me, and I’d be honored to earn your vote – please call me if you have any questions.

This is me just four years ago – we’ve accomplished so much since then, but there’s still more good work to be done!
