Davis for City Council

By
From page A6 | May 13, 2014 |

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.

Tia Will

    Hey, Anonymous Poster, why should I get angry with Twila Will? After all, it was not she but her candidate, Robb Davis, who posed for a photo-op with Iranian dictator AHMADINEJAD.

    To the unnamed commenter: there are no 'angry' comments, only insightful and concerned ones. I must have somehow made a mistake in my tone. However, I do feel all of the candidates are off-base (except John Munn) in the way they view the water-processing plant and its possibilities: the following scenario should have been envisioned before any of the other candidates chose to support the building of the plant. 1. Drought conditions continue into the far future. 2. Sacramento has superior water rights to Yolo County and gets the water while Davis and Woodland only get the bills. 3. Davis is faced with the choice of A) continuing to pay for the maintenance of a non-producing water treatment plant or B) defaulting on its loan. 4. Defaulting on the loan may be the least expensive of the 2 choices and, if it does default, Davis may either have to declare bankruptcy or massively expand its borders in order to avoid bankruptcy. All the candidates (except Munn) may well be humiliated in the future if the above scenario comes true.
