Geoff Ellsworth people first campaign for St Helena mayor

What a ride it’s been. With Election Day fast approaching, my campaign is heating up and it’s all thanks to you. Check out the new campaign video we just released, and read on for more campaign updates, including the results from my door-to-door survey.

Survey Results Are In

For the past few weeks, I’ve been going door-to-door, asking you all about the most pressing issues in St. Helena. The people have spoken. Out of 102 surveys, we found that 77% of you felt that your water rates were too high. 84% believed that residential users should pay a lower rate for water than commercial or industrial users. A whopping 90% were worried about how our local water supplies might be affected by drought over the coming years.

On average, our survey indicated that traffic, too many vacant homes, water rates and water safety, affordable housing, and retail/downtown viability were your top concerns for quality of life in St. Helena.

Special thanks to everyone who answered our survey. I look forward to working together with all of you to tackle St. Helena’s most pressing issues.
