Examine records side by side

Matt Biers-Ariel wrote an open letter to Dan Wolk, suggesting he drop out of the Assembly election. Why? Because he believes Wolk and Krovoza will split the vote in the June primary, thus neither advancing, and we will end up with Napa’s Bill Dodd, a Republican turned Democrat with deep pockets, running against a Republican in the November election.

We need an experienced, independent voice representing the 4th Assembly and for one of them to bow out. Joe will have completed his term as mayor while Dan is scheduled to begin his mayoral duties. It makes sense for Dan to keep his commitments and run when he has completed his duties. And in two years, Sen. Lois Wolk will be termed out and Dan could run then.

While I generally agree with Biers-Ariel, there have been real differences between Dan and Joe that show the latter’s impressive work for communitywide benefit.

Joe pushed hard for the consolidation of city and UC Davis Fire Department management to save us more than $200,000 annually, but Dan voted for separation, which only reduces coordination and service efficiency. Joe led reorganization of the Davis Fire Department, taking staffing from 12 firefighters to 11 for a reasonable 8.3 percent reduction, while other city staff took a 23 percent cut and the studies showed our fire safety would remain strong.

Dan Wolk was then invited and attended the firefighters’ party to celebrate the city manager leaving Davis. Dan said he did not know it was a celebration but didn’t express annoyance that the firefighters didn’t tell him that. Joe wasn’t invited.

Joe passionately supported the Mace Curve open space 400 acres purchased with our precious Measure O dollars, to surround a possible 200-acre business park (big enough for six new companies). That was a good balance of environment and business. But Dan was looking for ways to convert the 400 acres with the 200 acres for a 600-acre park.

Examine their professional and volunteer experiences side by side.

I enthusiastically support Joe Krovoza for 4th Assembly and trust him to work for the common good.
