Law clinic is a great example

Dan Wolk is a doer and visionary. I worked with him for many years at the Legal Clinic of Yolo County, a free clinic he created and led to serve the legal needs of the poor and elderly in Yolo County. Dan chose the location of the clinic, a senior center in West Sacramento, to […]

Wolk’s ready for the next step

We hear a lot about reaching across the aisle and consensus-building being the most effective way to make real change in government. Dan Wolk has been endorsed by all three of his fellow City Council members. This says a lot about how he manages relationships, governance and conflict on complex issues. Clearly, his council colleagues […]

Krovoza is a creative leader

My vote goes to Joe Krovoza for Assembly based upon his extraordinary track record — beginning as a youthful volunteer in public service and his continuing dedicated leadership in our city and region. Joe brings us a mountain of experience as an innovative and co-creative leader. He has clearly performed with integrity and eagerness to […]

Look who’s funding the mailers

One has to wonder when you see the flurry of campaign mailers for our Assembly race, what interests are at stake? Where is the money coming from? The mailers attacking Dan Wolk are funded by “FairPAC” with money from big oil, big pharma and the insurance industry. The mailers supporting Dan Wolk are funded by […]

Elect Krovoza to the Assembly

Upon moving to Davis in 2004, we took a while to get our bearings, conducted a little post-retirement, values-clarifying self-assessment, then did what Davisites do. We got to work contributing where we could to issues that matter to us. With our values as our guide, it is no surprise that we believe electing Joe Krovoza […]

Dan has all the right stuff

I enthusiastically support Dan Wolk for state Assembly. Dan has all the right stuff to represent our interests in the Assembly. He is smart, well-educated at Stanford and UC Berkeley Law School and experienced as a volunteer on several Davis commissions, as a Davis City Council member and as a Solano County attorney. He follows […]

Fight back with your vote

How I miss Herb Bauer when we most need his wit and insight during this campaign. It is a shame that he isn’t here to put pen to paper to express how many of us are disgusted in the unsupported attacks that are being aimed at Dan Wolk. Dan has shown an infinite amount of […]

Dan Wolk for Assembly

I wanted to write you a letter to express my steadfast support for Dan Wolk for Assembly. All of my life I have worked for environmental causes from clean air and water to protecting our wild places. I believe Dan is the best candidate in the race to work for meaningful progress on these issues. […]

Little Oedipus won’t budge

Dear Annie: You’ve printed letters about grandchildren sleeping with the grandparents. What do you think about a 7-year-old boy who sleeps with his mother in her queen-sized bed, displacing his father? Dad sleeps in his daughter’s room (in twin beds). This young boy is very strong-willed, as is his mother. She’s quite proud of this […]

Davis is a gifted mediator

I have known Robb Davis for more than 10 years as a friend and also as a spiritual adviser, fount of wisdom and source of inspiration. Robb addresses issues with his feet firmly planted in core values of compassion, which allows him to ask unexpected but important questions. He is a gifted mediator who respects […]

It’s an honor to support Munn

You learn a lot about people from working closely with them in good situations and bad. When John Munn joined the Davis school board, all I knew about him was that he was a Republican. I was quite frankly worried that he would bring his political affiliation and party beliefs, frequently contrary to my own, […]

Robb Davis is the real deal

Please join me in electing Robb Davis for City Council. I have known Robb for many years as our paths have crisscrossed through our international development work. I cannot begin to tell you how fortunate we are to have a person of Robb’s caliber as a candidate for City Council. Robb’s character exemplifies the unique […]

Allen, Swanson, Krovoza

I attended several forums and spoke with several candidates for different offices in the coming election. Finally, I am settled on the Sheila Allen and Rochelle Swanson for City Council. But for a long time, I have not been able to decide between both Joe Krovoza and Dan Wolk for Assembly. Both of them are […]

Swanson merits our support

I met Rochelle Swanson when I was a student at UC Davis, working at KDVS. Even though we disagreed on the issue that catalyzed my involvement in local politics, it was immediately apparent that I was speaking with a compassionate, knowledgeable and hard-working public servant. She is respectful of all people and never forms an […]
