CERF Governance Council Elections: Shaping the Future of Eastern Kern

The upcoming Governance Council Elections by the Community Economic Resilience Fund (CERF) are a crucial event for Eastern Kern residents. CERF, dedicated to fostering economic resilience, plays a pivotal role in shaping the community’s future.

Over the next few years, the Kern Coalition will have a lot of important decisions to make regarding how to allocate CERF funds to projects around Kern County. In order to ensure representation for our community in the governance council that will be making these decisions, we need our community to come out and vote in the governance council elections.
