Government & Law Day
On Government and Law day, the class was excited about the opportunity to meet with County Supervisors John Phillips and Luis Alejo. We discussed important issues happening in each of their districts. We then took a tour of the Salinas Police department, where the Chief of Police Adele Frese educated us about the efforts of her team, especially the Violence Suppression Unit which is focused on reducing gang-related crime. District Attorney Jeannine Pacioni discussed the role of her department, and the methods her team uses to prosecute cases in our county. We ended the day with an informative discussion with Seaside City Mayor Ian Oglesby and King City Mayor Mike Lebarre about issues that impact their cities, such as the need for low income housing, homelessness and the creation of additional local jobs.
