Auburn City Councilman Daniel Berlant announced this week that he would be seeking a second term on the City Council in the November election.

Berlant, who has served nearly four years on the City Council, plans to continue to make bridging community and safety a priority.

“While there are a lot of important issues facing Auburn, the safety of our community and our families has to be the top priority of the City Council,” said Councilman Daniel Berlant. “We live in an extremely high fire risk area and I plan to continue to ensure we put a focus on fire prevention and emergency response.”

In the past four years Berlant has fought to increase police and fire staffing, proposed the City’s Homeless-Transient Task Force, to ensure more is done to deal with the growing illegal camping and panhandling problem, as well worked to provide a balanced city budget.

“Working for the community has been an honor the past four years,” Berlant said. “We have a lot more work and issues ahead, so I hope to continue to serve my fellow residents.”

As part of his role as city councilman, Berlant has served as the chair of the Greater Auburn Area Fire Safe Council, boardmember for the Placer County Air Pollution Control District, and board-member of the Placer County Flood Control District. His peers view him as a strong leader on these public safety boards.

“The fact that Daniel has over a decade experience as a well-known fire official in California has made him a perfect addition to Auburn’s City Council,” said retired Auburn Fire Chief Mark D’Ambrogi, who is also a member of the Placer Sierra Fire Safe Council. “I have seen firsthand Daniel lead the Greater Auburn Area Fire Safe Council in ensuring our community is safe.”
