Choose this social progressive

Davisites, we should support Dan Wolk for Assembly.

My fear is that this election is turning out to be more of a popularity contest than one based on important social issues. This is much greater than a race between Joe Krovoza and Dan Wolk. This is much bigger than relations with UC Davis and environmental issues related to Davis. This is about a progressive social agenda — one that addresses income inequality, development and financing of affordable homes, and a fully funded social safety net.

Wolk believes the growing gap between the rich and everyone else is unfair and bad for California. He has a proven track record in voting for programs/activities that ensure that all working families and our working poor have a safe, decent, affordable place to call home (those in Davis earning around $77,000 per year and below).

He started the Legal Clinic of Yolo County, helping those in need by providing free/reduced legal services to the working poor who struggle daily to meet basic living needs due to cuts in our social safety net programs.

We need Wolk, who understands the struggles of young professional families — he will be 37 when elected to the Assembly (after serving in local elected office and working in local government), following the path of other great young Dems like Vic Fazio, Mike Thompson and even Gov. Jerry Brown.

Make your vote count and vote for Dan, a social progressive Democrat with a vision for strengthening our schools, improving health care and making homes affordable for all income levels. Dan is experienced and ready to lead in our region and our state.
