City Council candidate David W Pittman                             

35 years Fire Service Retired Fire Chief

Oroville City Councilman 2009-2017

Born and raised here in Oroville my family has over 100 years of history here. In my Council experience we had a positive momentum and I look forward to help re-establish that Community Momentum. So many partnerships in this community are its strengths give hope to prosperity to all. 

Considering the opportunities, possibilities for Oroville without the strongest Public Safety/Law Enforcement Plan, the prosperity for all is at risk. Populations will not stay in a community they feel unsafe to shop and reside in!

Communities are now measured by the Security level provided!

Critical improvements to Public Safety are necessary to reach the maximum comfort the citizens deserve. We all must contribute to that effort and I urge your support of Measure to increase the City sales tax on this election ballot.

Once elected you can expect my support to Public Safety Service Level improvements!

Oroville’s budget has been attacked by State activities and now needs new ideas, new recruitment tools and outside investment.

Some ideas worthy of perusing:  

o   Improvements to Airport/Golf Course with R/V campground

o   Airport or Golf Course Motel facility

o   Clay Pit SVRA Larkin Road Improvements advocacy

o   Rabe Road Sportsman Range advocacy

o   Warm water swim / aquatic facility

o   Housing inventory increase all categories

o   Expansion of Forebay Aquatic Center

o   Road and Street maintenance city wide

o   Traffic safety improvements especially close to schools

o   Vocational education public & private training

o   City Park improvements & new service plan

o   Expanding tourism and Community marketing

o   Utilizing resources of State Agencies for betterment of Oroville

o   Utilizing resources of Local & County Agencies for betterment of Oroville

 

As a fourth generation native I am compelled to ensure the Improvement in the Security and Comfort of my friends, neighbors and family with efficient, effective City government services. 

I value public participation, open communication, public safety, quality of life and economic development for existing business and policies that encourage business opportunities

With 35 years of Pubic Fire Service, 8 years City Councilman experience, extensive committee memberships I ask your consideration to serve as your representative on Oroville City Council.  Your partnership in moving Oroville forward is valuable.   

My vision for Oroville is that place you, your family, friends and business’s will be proud to call home.

Please remember your voice is important and your VOTE counts!
