Announcing a new $57 Community Grant Program

Recently, the City Council, acting as the Fire District Board, approved a $57/meeting increase in its pay. This was the first increase in almost 10 years--hardly a budget buster! The new amount should take effect in September, 2018.

I use most of the money I get for serving on the Council for community groups, in the form of donations or sponsorships. Consistent with that philosophy, I am announcing a new grant program: the Mark Joseph $57 Community Grant Program! Every time I receive my $57 raise, I will give it away to a local community group based in American Canyon. The organization can use it for any lawful purpose, including operations. Limit one grant per organization. Contact me at to apply.

It's not much, but it's my way of saying, I don't want to profit from making Council compensation more reasonable. This program will only last while I'm in office, of course, which is why I'm working hard to get re-elected this November. If you would like to help, just click on the link.
