Good reasons to elect Robb

By
From page A6 | May 13, 2014 |

There are so many good reasons to elect Robb Davis to the Davis City Council that it is hard to know where to begin. So, I am going to restrain myself and just talk about the two reasons that are closest to my heart. Both are to do with his resolve and special abilities to help solve difficult social problems in a compassionate and intelligent way.
First, Robb is a staff volunteer at 1111 H St., Davis Community Meals’ transitional shelter for the homeless. I was a very active volunteer there for many years from its very beginning, 20 or so years ago, and now, still involved though less active, I am well acquainted with its complexities and the skills necessary to make that wonderful place work well. Robb has all of those qualities.
Secondly, I am now happy to be engaged in the newly begun but flourishing Davis Neighborhood Court restorative justice program for first-time offenders. We “panelists” go through quite a thorough training for this, and a big part of the training I attended was given by Robb, a founder of the program.

He was excellent: clear, encouraging, informative and, importantly, very receptive to any questions and comments; he listens. For me, this program is one of the most hopeful recent developments to try to do something to reform our punitive and tragic system of justice.
So, do what The Davis Enterprise so wisely said last week: “Cast your vote for Robb Davis. You won’t regret it.”!
