Failures (partial list)
NO CHANGE IN RESPONSE – Randall Stone has attempted to work with City staff on addressing emergency response issues. For example, when public safety respond to an emergency call, there is no way to prioritize the call and filter response teams – meaning that all too often an unnecessary full response is sent when it may not be warranted. This places a considerable demand on our police and fire and over represents response needs – an inefficient method of delivering services.
In his capacity as a statewide leader with the League of California Cities, Stone met with public safety response analysts along with the Fire Chief and Assistant City Manager to discuss Chico’s public safety response. City staff contracted with the analysts for further review of Chico’s response systems. More infrastructure is still needed to prioritize calls and the analysts are still conducting research for reporting. Although this is a failure at this time, it is still pending an outcome.
SEX TRAFFICKING ORDINANCE GOES VIRAL – After several social work training events on Human Trafficking and Sex Trafficking, Randall Stone set out to reduce or eliminate the instance of sex slavery in Chico and Butte County. Stone’s proposed Sex Trafficking Ordinance directed at fronts for prostitution and modelled after similar ordinaces in San Francisco and Shasta County was unanimously supported by Council and sent to the Internal Affairs Committee for finalization before returning to Council for adoption. Although this ordinance is time sensitive to save lives, two council colleagues delayed the local policy in an effort to bog the project down with multijurisdictional discussion. This ordinance should be amended and passed now and coordinated with other jurisdictions while we refine our own policy. A countywide policy is welcome, but not at the expense of our city residents.
STONE MAKES A FOOL OF HIMSELF! – “Chico City Councilmember Randall Stone raises his fist in victory as he wins first place during the celebrity edition of the World Championship Pancake Eating Contest at the Silver Dollar Fair in Chico, California on Saturday, May 28, 2016”¹. Stone bested U.S. Congressman Doug LaMalfa who outweighs Stone by more than 100 pounds as well as a fellow council colleague, media personalities, and the local daily newspaper editor. At the end of the day, a great time was had by all and we hope you will work with Stone to help make Chico even better in the coming four years.
