Davis has skills, thoughtfulness

By
From page A8 | May 20, 2014 |

This coming election, I’ll be voting for Robb Davis because I’ve gotten to know his abilities and character while serving with him on the board of the Dos Pinos Housing Cooperative.

We are 60 families (more than 100 individuals) who own the colorful condos on the corner of Sycamore Lane and Antelope Avenue, and while we’re a “cooperative,” the truth is we’re a diverse set of people with competing and often conflicting needs and interests. And that means that getting to “cooperation” is often a long and arduous process. It’s easy and reassuring for me to imagine how Robb is going to improve the way that the City Council operates because I’ve seen how he acts as president of our cooperative.

Over the past two years, we’ve handled major projects like painting, re-fencing and re-roofing — all major multi-month projects and serious money for our scale. Anyone here will tell you it took at least a dozen members serving on the board and committees to research options, gather and analyze member opinions, and hold votes to complete these projects. But anyone here will also tell you that Robb’s analytical and facilitating skills, combined with his leadership, has made the process work better for the community than it would have without him.

As I’ve followed what other supporters have to say about Robb, I’ve noticed that in whatever project Robb applies himself, he impresses the people he works with. You see it in letters from fellow employees at the Davis Food Co-op, restorative justice and bicycling advocates, and public health colleagues — the people he works with say the same things about him, and we’re not using a script.

These endorsements should give those of you who don’t know him personally the confidence to know that he will apply the same skills and thoughtfulness in City Council that he’s already demonstrated.
