VIDEO: Mayor Goh discusses her issues of interest for Bakersfield

Bakersfield Mayor Karen Goh made her first appearance “First Look with Scott Cox” since winning the office.

While the position of Bakersfield mayor is largely ceremonial, Goh said she would like to emphasize her work on bringing jobs to the city, providing for safe and clean neighborhoods and boosting education.

“When you’re passionate about something it’s easy to throw yourself  wholeheartedly into that,” Goh told hosts Scott Cox and Michael Hopper.

Goh also discussed the challenges the city faces when it comes homelessness, especially in downtown.

“I’m very passionate about our downtown and some of those challenges. Not only do we want to revaltizle downtown, the beauty, physical part, the business, but we want to revitalize the people, and that requires connecting them to the right places, where they can get services.,” Goh said. “You know we can throw it on law enforcement but that is not the answer to all of them. Homelessness, and the people who frequent downtown, there is great complexity and there is not one size fits all. There are some who are challenged because of substance abuse problems. Many of them have mental health issues.”
