Why I am running 

Cummings_head_Shot.jpeg

This is a pivotal moment in the history of Santa Cruz County.  With skyrocketing housing costs outpacing wages, rebuilding from the CZU fires, the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, a homelessness emergency, the need for alternatives to crisis response, and the need to create climate change solutions NOW, we need strong leadership on the board of supervisors that will hear the needs of the community and take acton to get things done.  As a middle class renter, union member, environmental scientist and non-profit developer, educator, and former Santa Cruz Mayor, I believe that my leadership and life experience will help us forge a sustainable path forward for our environment, community, local economy, and future generations.  

Meet Former Mayor Dr. Justin Cummings

Dr. Justin Cummings is an environmental scientist with over 20 years of experience studying and working on issues such as climate change, habitat restoration, social and environmental justice, and environmental conservation. 
Most recently he has transferred his skills to secure grants to create and manage non-profit STEM education and professional workforce development programs centered on promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in emerging tech and environmental conservation sectors.
