Randall Stone was elected to bring professional financial management to the City of Chico. Together with city staff, the City of Chico has bridged an over $4-million annual budget shortfall and making great strides in responsible financial management through developing efficiency gains and performance based management techniques.
Randall Stone works to develop broad coalitions, developing new public-private partnerships, and fostering strong fiscal management at all levels of municipal governance. As a Councilmember for the last 6 years, Randall Stone routinely demonstrates his leadership in environmental and fiscal policy – insisting on reducing land fill dependency and working towards meaningful pension reform.
As a successful business owner and 25-year resident of Chico, Stone is proud of Chico’s reputation as a leader in cultural and recreational opportunities. He owns and operates a professional financial management firm, directs the Special Olympics of Butte County, and studied finance, economics, and public administration at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Stone holds a Bachelors Degree in Finance and Economics and a Masters in Public Administration with Distinction. In August of 2016, Stone was elected President of the League of California Cities – Sacramento Valley Division and serves on 30-percent of the League of California Cities’ statewide committees including Housing, Community, and Economic Development as well as Governance, Transparency, and Labor Relations. He is a frequent speaker on housing affordability and municipal finance.
The economic conditions throughout the state and country have caused unprecedented financial challenges that endanger our economic stability and safety. The year he was elected to Council, Stone helped bring an estimated 75-fulltime equivalent, annualized jobs to the City of Chico and much needed revenue to restore our oldest community neighborhoods as well as provide much needed safe, decent, and sanitary housing for low income residents. In his first year-and-half in office he spearheaded the campaign to reform pensions and benefits – returning over $4 million to the General Fund over one to three years (depending on bargaining group). Stone’s efforts to reform local government have yielded unprecedented public-private partnerships to enhance public safety, streamline municipal services, and solve regional problems. He has an exceptional reputation as a leader in accessibility, environment and alternative transportation systems, and most significantly in fiscal sustainability.
As a job creator and self-employed professional financial manager, Stone understands how to coordinate capital and operating budgets and places public safety as a top priority. We need safe streets where our children and seniors can be comfortable enjoying our parks and waterways. High density development must not be allowed to alter the character of our classic neighborhoods while still being affordable and maintaining a transit-centric urban core. Stone works to enhance bicycle networks for safe transit throughout the city. We deserve a safe and economically stable community. We deserve exceptional leadership and strong professional management. Randall Stone continues to work hard for the County of Butte.
Experienced. Independent. Fair.
