Roberts is known for his commitments to fiscal disci- pline, at-risk youth, senior issues, clean air and long-range planning. His transit leadership has San Diego on the precipice of building a significant extension of the trolley from Old Town to UCSD and University Town Center. Roberts will also discuss a new emergency services initiative to be used during disasters, like wildfires, and he will touch on the county’s “Live Well, San Diego!” campaign that is focusing on healthier communities, childhood obesity and reducing strokes and heart attacks.
