Meet Gregg Fishman
I’m a husband and father, brother, brother-in-law and uncle. My wife, daughters and extended family bring me great happiness and they also drive my desire to serve my community. I am a 40-year resident of Sacramento, a proud Sac State graduate (Stingers Up!) and I have been committed to public service in one way or another for most of my life.
A sense of duty and purpose led me to broadcast journalism where I reported the facts, exposed corruption, and improved public discourse. I have served on my Homeowner’s Association Board, the Arden Park Recreation and Park Board, and I am currently a member of the SMUD Board of Directors. I am a committed community volunteer, leading a neighborhood partnership with the Sacramento Tree Foundation that has planted more than 2,000 trees to make our community greener.
As a member of the SMUD Board of Directors, I’m proud that your rates are 35 percent lower than most other utility customers in California. That keeps more than $675 million in the Sacramento economy and saves the average SMUD residential customer an average of $375 every year.
For six years I worked for the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) promoting the most effective and innovative county programs and working side by side with some of the best County Supervisors in California.
I am a proven and pragmatic leader and I plan to put that common sense approach to work, making Sacramento County better for the people it serves.
Why I am Running
I’m running because I want to help unlock the potential of our community in the same way I’ve helped SMUD be one of the best, greenest and most cost-efficient utilities in the country.
Sacramento County must and can do better on responsible law enforcement reforms, public health, homelessness, housing affordability, and on getting the basics right, like fixing roads and issuing building permits quickly and correctly.
My values reflect our community and I’m the one person in this race with the judgment, experience, and track record of leadership we so desperately need to accomplish meaningful change.
