Water Conservation!
While some current council members prefer expensive and wasteful surf parks, Gregg Akkerman knows the best path to protecting our property values is to lead by example and conserve our precious resources.

Alternative Transportation!
Gregg has explored alternative transportation in Palm Desert since 1971 when he visited with Andy the Donkey Man where the Target shopping center is today. He'll keep investigating new options to get around town that are affordable and eco-friendly.
city districts
No Gerrymandering!
Only after intense public pressure and threat of lawsuit did the current council finally agree to embrace the 5-district model required by the California Voting Rights Act and I will ensure these districts are compliant and fair to the voters of Palm Desert.
Public Safety
Public Safety
Keeping Palm Desert residents, business owners, and tourists feeling safe is my priority. I will focus on consistent and transparent communication with first responders and citizens to promote a sense of safety throughout our city.
