Swanson merits our support

By
From page A6 | May 27, 2014 |

I met Rochelle Swanson when I was a student at UC Davis, working at KDVS. Even though we disagreed on the issue that catalyzed my involvement in local politics, it was immediately apparent that I was speaking with a compassionate, knowledgeable and hard-working public servant. She is respectful of all people and never forms an opinion without meeting a high threshold of knowledge on the matter at hand.

Rochelle plays a role in our community that is irreplaceable. She is fervently dedicated to maintaining our quality of life and doing things the Davis way. She has helped reduce expenditures, pave the way for new revenues, protected the environment, and has done it entirely through the lens of Davis values.

For her, community is about sustainability — fiscal, environmental, and cultural. She loves everything we each cherish in our community, from the arts to open space.

However, as I talk to people about Rochelle, so many are quick to call her a “shoe-in” or a “sure bet” in this election and I believe those sentiments are a luxury we cannot afford. Every vote counts, and the work that she does on City Council doesn’t end at the dais.

I encourage you not only to vote for her, but to support her efforts to stay on the council and continue the work that she started four years ago by augmenting her efforts through talking to your neighbors or joining us at the Farmers Market this Saturday. She has a comprehensive, first-hand understanding of every aspect of our community and we all deserve to have her on City Council.

    I voted for Rochelle Swanson last election but will only be voting for John Munn this time around. I think Rochelle is a fine woman but she (and the other council people) got us into a lot of ongoing trouble through pushing (and getting) our albatross, the water treatment plant. With this drought, only Sacramento will be getting Sacramento River water. We will only be getting the bill. And the bill will be huge. The question is, "Will the bill be large enough to force Davis to have to choose between bankruptcy and expanding the boundaries of the city in order to pay its bills"? Save the water treatment plant fiasco, Rochelle would be my second vote. Sadly, there will be no second vote for me this time around.
