COMMUNITY WORK & ADVOCACY
Moreno currently serves on the Board of Directors for Cosumnes CSD, and was elected in 2018. She has advocated for various causes involving budget accountability, climate action, and creating policies that focus on social equity. Since mid-2014, Moreno has also owned CARE Educational Services. She offers special education support, educational assessments, and care resources for local public, private, and charter schools. Also, she spoke openly about the importance of mental health care and feels that families and communities thrive best when support is available. When speaking about her involvement in healthcare, she describes how it applies to what county officials face on a regular basis.
“When we’re thinking about this seat, we want someone in there who has a deep understanding of mental health care, and knows what folks in the community have been going through, professionally I work in mental health care – I work with kids every day, not only on mental health care issues, but on housing, foster care, criminal justice, medi-cal – all of the things that the county does I am on the ground level everyday working to support people in this community.”-Jaclyn Moreno, Cosumnes CSD Director
Moreno’s endorsements consist of a long list of profound Sacramento Democratic leaders and reputable unions. She came prepared with a list of her supporters and proudly named them all. Among those names in attendance were: Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby, Sacramento Councilmember Mai Vang, Cosumnes CSD Director Orlando Fuentes; Elk Grove Unified School District Board Trustee Gina Jamerson; Los Rios Community Colleges Trustee Tami Nelson; and former Elk Grove Planning Commissioner Mackenzie Weiser to name a few. The highlight of the evening was Former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin, and City of Sacramento Mayor, Darrell Steinberg giving their public endorsement to the Moreno campaign.
“She has walked the walk. She is not just a mental health advocate she is a mental health professional in the schools. She dedicates herself from her heart, and her head to the very causes and the very people that the Board of Supervisors are primarily responsible for.”-Darrell Steinberg, Mayor of Sacramento
Delaine Eastin, former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction, stressed the importance of a woman in office.
“We’re talking about a serious place called Sacramento County, and it is a place that has not had many women in history,” said Eastin, “we’ve had some wonderful, wonderful men who are compassionate and broad-minded, and I know that’s who’s on this patio tonite -but the fact is it makes a difference to have a woman in the room – a woman whose values are about general equity and family”-Delaine Eastin, former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction
District 5 is considered one of the most diverse districts as it incorporates the cities of Rancho Cordova, Galt, Elk Grove, and Isleton, and a multitude of rural farming communities along the southern border of Sacramento County and Delta region. There are over 300,000 residents spanning 650 square miles.
“Jaclyn regularly speaks with members of our community in order to discuss local issues and how to best address them. She will always fight for what is right and just.”Los Rios Community Colleges Board Trustee Tami Nelson
Relationship building, and creating a dialogue with the community on important matters are what many of her supporters admire most about her.
“Jaclyn Moreno is someone who is passionate about people and the issues facing humanity. She realizes that climate change is at the intersection of nearly all issues facing her constituents! I am going to do whatever I need to do to ensure this district knows how critically important this race truly is!”Former Planning Commissioner Mackenzie Wieser
According to Moreno she will be, “one of seven women to be elected as County Supervisor,” but “the first to represent the southern part of the county.”
