COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of day-to-day life.

Those changes will no doubt create significant economic challenges at the local, state, and federal level in the upcoming year. 

In Tulare, nearly every city council candidate identified the economic effects of COVID-19 as the most important issue the city will face in 2021. Along with the economy, here are a few other key issues candidates addressed. 

Councilmembers Greg Nunley and Carlton Jones didn’t respond to requests for comment. 

Economic impacts of COVID-19

Mayor Jose Sigala said one of the top issues for the city is balancing the budget. This year will be even more challenging given the statewide shutdown. 

District 5 candidate Courtney Oliver said if elected she will aim to support small business “by way of resources and sustainability.”
