Show support for Allen, Swanson

By
From page A9 | May 21, 2014 |

After careful consideration and numerous opportunities to observe, listen to, and interact with the candidates, the best choices for Davis City Council have become clear. I am voting for Sheila Allen and Rochelle Swanson.

Sheila offers so much as a future council member: significant budget experience; success in working with other members of a board; and a community-wide approach to policy-making. She is a nurse, a public health professional and a Davis mom, having raised a family here in Davis with her husband Mitch for the past 20 years. Everyone I know who knows Sheila says she is a fine person, kind, smart, thoughtful and full of integrity.

Rochelle offers experience and maturity in office, a lawyer’s familiarity with the legal implications of decisions as well as a business owner’s understanding of what is needed by Davis business owners to operate successfully in this town. She, too, has lived in Davis for many years, raising a family here and contributing in numerous ways to the betterment of Davis.

In order to have a balanced City Council going forward, I am voting for both of these female candidates … who will continue a long tradition of female leadership in and from our community/region.

Please vote for Sheila and Rochelle!

John Troidl

    Shelia Allen is not to be trusted. She is a puppet of the unions that are bankrupting the city through their pension plans. Her votes on the school board come after she sniffs the winds first to make sure she makes the least number of potential voters upset. Yes, all the teams Mom's love her because she is so fake on the sidelines. They don't know the real, manipulative back room politico that Shelia really is. She didn't spend money on upgrading the DHS softball facility until her daughter was close to playing in the program. Her time is up.

    "Her votes on the school board come after she sniffs the winds first to make sure she makes the least number of potential voters upset." Is that a negative way to frame that she talks to constituents and stakeholders?

    You got it half right John. Vote for Rochelle. Of course you failed to put anything in your letter about how you are still chapped about fluoride not getting into the water as the reason you are supporting Sheila. Still I wonder why you support Rochelle when she voted against Fluoride?

    These two are supported by the very people that got us into our current mess... and they both espouse the same way of thinking. For example, Rochelle's Innovation Officer costs a ton of money without generating a single dollar of revenue. How is that fiscally responsible??? If it is an "investment" what is the investment plan? How and when will the City see a return on this "investment?"

    I was not impressed with Shelia Allen's part in the recent DHS Board fiasco. However, Rochelle gets my vote for opposing adding chemicals to my drinking water, & soil....fluoride!!

    Who are these people coming out in support of Sheila Allen? As I make my way around town, I find no one that supports her! Her performance on the school board was bad enough, let's not compound that mistake by electing her again!! Let Sheila return to being a nurse, maybe that is something she is actually competent to do.

    Vote NO on Sheila Allen, don't let machine politics control the election. The people of Davis can judge Sheila Allen based on her record on the school board...she was a FAILURE!! Don't let her union backers or whoever else is funding her campaign win, the people of Davis should choose who they want. My main issue is that she has had a chance at elected office and we have seen where that got us, ELECT Anyone else BUT Sheila Allen.
