You learn a lot about people from working closely with them in good situations and bad. When John Munn joined the Davis school board, all I knew about him was that he was a Republican. I was quite frankly worried that he would bring his political affiliation and party beliefs, frequently contrary to my own, to bear on his decisions in what should be a nonpartisan office.
During the four years John served on the school board, I never once felt that his decisions were based on anything other than what was best for students. He listened to all perspectives and points of view respectfully, weighed them carefully, and voted thoughtfully. I think he will do the same on the City Council.
His character is unimpeachable and he will bring a maturity, balance and interest in financial stability to the council that will be appreciated by the community, city staff and his council colleagues.
When he asked if I would sign his nomination papers, I told him it would be an honor to do so. Casting a vote for him will be the same. Please vote for John Munn on June 3.
