I will be voting for Robb Davis for City Council. I would like to share some reasons for my support of Robb.
First, as a health care provider with major interests in public health and safety, I naturally gravitated toward Robb as an individual who has an awareness of the importance of health and well-being of individuals to the healthy functioning of the entire community.
Robb gained this understanding through years of work in public health abroad. At the same time, he developed the understanding that for a policy to be effective, there must be clear communication, and understanding of and support for the policy on the part of the public.
As we worked together on the Vanguard editorial board, Robb consistently impressed me with his ability to listen, compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of various ideas and come up with creative solutions that frequently gained the backing of the entire board even if we were initially in disagreement.
Finally, perhaps more than anyone I have ever known, Robb truly lives his beliefs. When he states that he is interested in improving this community and has no higher political aspirations, you can bank on it. Robb loves our community, believes in local solutions, and will serve our city to the utmost of his ability without the distractions of future personal goals beyond Davis.
For all of these reasons, and many more, I urge you to join me in supporting Robb Davis for Davis City Council.
