Meet The District Three Rep & Staff

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
When the boundaries for city Councilman Steve Cohn‘s district shift in two weeks, he will represent a large portion of Natomas at City Hall.
“I am excited about becoming the council District Three representative for South Natomas and Gardenland/ Northgate,” Cohn said. “During the 17 years I’ve been on the city council, I’ve learned a lot about this area, but being the council rep is a whole new responsibility, which I take very seriously.”

Effective Oct. 6, Cohn’s city council district boundaries will reach from Interstate 80 south, east of Interstate 5 and along the East Levee Canal, encompassing the Gardenland/Northgate corridor and most South Natomas neighborhoods.

“I look forward to meeting as many area residents and businesses as possible over the next few months so I can better understand the challenges and opportunities facing this important part of Sacramento, whether the issues are traffic, economic development, flood control, crime, home foreclosures, code enforcement, schools, parks and recreation, or the American River Parkway,” Cohn said. “I am also looking to current district Councilmember Angelique Ashby, former councilmember Ray Tretheway and former Mayor Heather Fargo for advice and guidance.”

Cohn was first elected to the City Council in 1994 and re-elected to a record fifth term in June 2010. Cohn is a Board member of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, Regional Transit, Capitol Corridor (Rail) Authority, Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency, Sac County Regional Sanitation District, Sac Metro Air Quality Management District, Midtown Business Association, VIBE Youth Foundation, and chairs the Council Audit Committee.

Last year, Cohn retired as the Chief Assistant General Counsel for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District, where he worked since 1992 and now dedicates much his schedule to city matters.

“Please feel free to call my office during the week, or email me anytime,” Cohn said.
