Recommending Davis, Swanson for City Council

By
From page A6 | May 15, 2014 |

I am writing today to recommend that you vote for Robb Davis and Rochelle Swanson for the Davis City Council.

In my two years on the Davis City Council, I have found Rochelle to be a good advocate for the people of Davis. I feel that the current council has done a good job to build consensus and make reasonable, positive decisions. Rochelle has been a strong and important partner to work with especially when the council had to make hard choices on staffing changes and contract negotiations. I hope that she is re-elected so we can continue to work together.

Mayor Joe Krovoza’s decision to not seek re-election leaves a vacancy on the council that will be difficult to fill. Joe is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and tough on the issues. To fill the gap that Joe will leave on the council, I fully support Robb Davis. Robb has focused the past few years on community service to Davis and has clearly shown the type of intellect and toughness that we will need to handle the big challenges the city faces.

I have observed Robb first hand on the Bicycle Advisory Commission and the City’s Parking Task Force. I have observed a person that uses information and objective facts to determine the best policy directions.

I believe that when electing individuals to the council it is important to judge them not based upon their views on single issues, but on how they evaluate information to come up with their views on a variety of issues. I also believe that it is equally important that we have people that are willing to stand by their views in spite of the sometimes contentious special interest pressures we face.

I look forward to serving with Rochelle and Robb. I believe that with them on the council team, we will continue to make progress on the very real challenges the city faces.
