As I’ve grown older and, I hope, a bit wiser, I’ve realized that you don’t often have the opportunity to know exceptional people. About a year ago, I was presented such an opportunity, and I’m honored to have the chance, now, to share some of my experiences with Robb Davis.
When I first met Robb, I was immediately drawn to his quiet confidence and sincerity. He inspired me to have confidence in my own ability to build consensus and coalitions through careful listening and patient hard work. Robb’s example has shown me how to consider my thoughts carefully, to develop them fully, to deliver them gently, and to listen quietly before I act.
As I’ve come to know him better, I’ve admired his commitment to improving as many lives as he can touch in his professional, public or personal life. Over the past few months, I’ve watched Robb master the difficult details of city budgeting and management and I’ve admired his willingness to stand before the council and deliver difficult messages with conviction, but kindness, to the people of Davis.
I strongly believe that Robb keeps the interests of the citizens of Davis firmly in his heart and that he is absolutely the best person to help the people of Davis realize a better city. I encourage you to learn about Robb and to vote for him for City Council!
