San Juan Bautista Councilmember Scott Freels is a proud fifth-generation town resident. As a firefighter for 30 years with Cal Fire and fire chief with San Juan Bautista’s volunteer fire department, he is well versed in the policies of civic infrastructure. “Our largest current obstacle is the wastewater treatment facility and its need of upgrading to be in compliance with the state of California,” he told BenitoLink. “We also need more law enforcement presence. Our most difficult obstacle is keeping our businesses in the city alive and running during these uncertain times. I feel there is a need for much better public information. The more the public knows about their community the less opportunity there is for rumors and misinformation.”

Notable quote: “I’m a phone call away and I encourage the residents of San Juan to please call me with their concerns.” (Source: BenitoLink.com)
