Pyska: You can count on me

Stepping up for public service is a calling, and with that comes the responsibility to serve with dedication, compassion and integrity. It has been a true honor to represent the people of District 5 and Lake County these last few years. We have certainly faced challenges, but we have also grown by doing the hard work of choosing to do better. We are a different Lake County today because we choose progress.

The promises I made in 2020 have guided my work and my decisions. I continue to prioritize investing in our communities for a vibrant economy, a high standard of disaster prevention, and healthy and safe neighborhoods for our beautifully diverse residents. We have a rare opportunity to physically build a better reality with housing, broadband and roads — which means good jobs, strong local businesses and the foundation for a thriving Lake County.

We have been through a lot together over the years, and when things get tough, we have always shown up for each other without hesitation, and that is what makes our community so special. With the application for the name change of Kelseyville being submitted to the federal government, we are seeing a lot of pain, fear and anger — all for very valid reasons. There are still so many unknowns about the process, and as it unfolds and we learn more, I hope that we can have empathy with friends and neighbors who may feel differently. Ultimately, this decision will be made by the Board on Geographic Names, and I encourage everyone to submit their public comments to This email address is being protected from spambots.

This process will challenge all of us; please do not let it divide us.

We have achieved so much over the past few years because of the strength of our incredible county staff, generously serving the public every day, and the community partners who dedicate themselves to building up Lake County. This genuine collaboration propels us forward, and I am deeply grateful for all who contribute in so many ways; this truly is our superpower.

I want to thank my family for their willingness to support and sacrifice so that I may serve with my whole heart, as you, the residents, require and deserve. My campaign has been 100% powered by local volunteers who also believe in the potential of our community and the bright future ahead; thank you all for your generous support!

Election Day is nearly here, and I am proud of the work I have put forward as your District 5 supervisor and the positive campaign I have run to seek another term. I hope I have earned your trust as a leader. You can count on me to build a stronger, safer and more vibrant Lake County for everyone.

Jessica Pyska is in her first term as District 5 supervisor. She lives in Cobb, California.
