Attending: Brian, Franco, Gail, Nancy, Brett, Abbi, Jan, Mathilde, Anne
Zoom Meeting during Covid-19 Shelter in Place
Brian asked participants to talk about their sheltering experience and for what each of us might need.
Mathilde: doing well; she has been working at KSQD radio station and the station needs antiseptic wipes for cleaning down equipment, desks, etc at the station.
Abbi: doing well, somewhat used to spending time at home on her home. Very concerned about the homeless population in our community and what is being done for them.
Some discussion about what we've heard the County has been doing and what the City of Santa Cruz has not been doing for the homeless.
Anne: Doing very well, has gotten lots done at her office and has had time for herself.
Gail: Getting used to our new reality. Becoming a Skype expert with all the calls to and from kids and grandkids.
Jan: talked about the economic downturn and the disastrous conditions to come.
Nancy: asked whether there is any help coming locally for renters besides the no-eviction policy. No one could answer. Brian will follow up on this question and get the answer back to us.
Gail mentioned that April is the month when the PDC forms a Nominating Committee for officers to take office on July 1. Tentative group of 3 for the committee pending their acceptance are: Sandra Nichols, Franco, and Judy Geer. The nominating committee will come back to us at the May meeting with the slate of officers. Brian will send out an email asking for volunteers to be on the committee and volunteers to be Executive Committee members.
