Mr. Briseno is focused on improving the quality of life in Vallejo for him, his family and all residents. He believes that the parks, facilities and programs that GVRD oversees are an important part of that. He advocates for the best use of resources to enable the district to improve and evolve to meet the needs of the community this year and for generations to come.
