Traffic and Transportation

Key Issues

Traffic and Transportation

For too long, the traffic congestion on Highway 29 has made the morning and evening commutes a nightmare for local residents and Napa County’s workforce. The 45-minute, 5-mile drive Mariam took from her home in American Canyon to her office on North Kelly Road spurred her to take action on this issue as a member of the City Council. Mariam has collaborated with regional transportation partners and state representatives to secure funding for our major thoroughfare while supporting capital improvement projects, partnerships with large employers to incentivize carpooling and staggered working hours, and other out-of-the-box solutions to address congestion. As Supervisor, she will continue taking the lead to make traffic relief Napa County’s top priority. 


As a member of the City Council, Mariam has made strides to make housing creation within infill areas and housing affordability focal points as American Canyon grows and evolves. During her last term on the Council, dozens of new affordable unites for seniors and veterans opened up in American Canyon, and Mariam has been exploring innovative solutions to housing for young people, families, and seniors in need. Mariam will collaborate with the City of Napa and American Canyon to strengthen partnerships to advance housing solutions as a member of the Board of Supervisors. 

Economic Development

It is imperative for county leaders to bring higher-paying jobs to Napa County so residents can afford to work where they live, thus helping to relieve traffic congestion. While on the City Council, Mariam significantly advanced the Watson Ranch downtown development project, a reflection of her commitment to economic progress by helping successful small businesses create and support good-paying jobs. She has earned the support of  local businesses and trades groups who recognize Mariam will be the leader we need to advance economic development opportunities, while balancing the need to grow sustainably and focus economic opportunity that fulfills unmet needs for local residents.
