This city has made some progress during the last few years in facing up to its considerable problems — structural budget shortfalls, a backlog of work to maintain road and other city facilities, and a lack of economic vitality to drive the city resources needed to address the prior concerns.
Without grandstanding but with determination, Rochelle Swanson has helped to take each of these issues head-on. We are impressed with how thoroughly she studies the issues and how she makes thoughtful decisions. She truly represents the community as a whole rather than special interests. Moreover, she has helped to restore an atmosphere of civil decision-making in City Council meetings that have been remarkably free of public rancor given the tough issues involved.
We supported Rochelle four years ago, and she has earned our support for a second term on the Davis City Council. We hope you will vote for her, too.
