Krovoza will serve our district well

From page A6 | May 15, 2014 |

I first met Joe Krovoza at a Putah Creek Council meeting more than 20 years ago and our work on the council’s steering committee overlapped by a few years. Joe, then a young natural resource attorney specializing in water law, quickly became the driving force behind the council’s successful effort to secure adequate stream flows in Putah Creek and restore the creek’s native fishery and salmon runs.

He led Putah Creek Council for seven years and was our lead negotiator for the historic litigation settlement that established new flows in Putah Creek. The settlement also established a permanent streamkeeper for the creek, resulted in a restoration program that has attracted more than $12 million and created a permanent endowment for the council.

Several years ago, I had the pleasure of working with Joe again. This time we collaborated on the time-consuming yet necessary task of drawing up articles of incorporation, bylaws and other documents to establish Davis Bicycles! as a nonprofit biking advocacy organization — something Davis sorely needed. No one else wanted to tackle the paperwork, but Joe had the enthusiasm and energy. We worked closely with others in the biking community and made it happen.

My take-home message is this: Joe Krovoza is your candidate if you want things to happen in the 4th Assembly District. He’s a down-to-earth, “let’s get it done” guy and the hardest-working person I know. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable on issues, he knows how to leverage that knowledge into forward-thinking ideas and action.

Joe’s a master at keeping a team of people motivated on an issue and leading by example. And he’s not above rolling up his sleeves and doing the hard work necessary to see a job done successfully.
