Kerry Simpson - Region 1

CANDIDATE STATEMENT – KERRY SIMPSON – REGION 1

During the past four years, I have served the members of Region one and the entire State by being a conduit between CACEO and the state capitol. Last year, I focused my attention on AB 2228, legislation that codified what it means to be a “certified code enforcement officer.” My relationship with Assemblyman Ken Cooley who introduced the bill and my time and passion testifying at every Senate and Assembly committee hearing showcased my commitment to the members and the profession.

More recently, I testified at the Senate Hearing on the Ghost Ship tragedy and am working with Oakland to implement a proactive rental inspection program. While I am excited to work with other cities, I am always available to assist or mentor individual members.  To that end, I have taught at the annual conference and mobile academy to ensure high quality training that embraces critical thinking.

As part of a state wide team, I am working with the POST training center at McLellan to reinstate a CACEO-sanctioned academy to improve accessibility to training in the region.  With your support, I would be honored to serve Region one for another term and am already working on Legislation to seek DMV confidentiality for CACEO members.
