Vote for Wolk, to stay Democratic

By
From page A6 | May 15, 2014 |

Two years ago, Dan Wolk won election by doing something I can’t remember anyone else ever doing: He came in first place in every precinct in Davis. Having known Dan for many years, I saw in him a powerful combination of having inculcated the traditional Democratic values that Davis has long supported and natural talent as a campaigner. It was obvious that he should run for higher office.

Sadly, Dan is not the only candidate for the state Assembly who lives in Davis, and as a result of too many local candidates running there is a chance that the local Democrats might split the vote and the top two vote-getters could be a Republican and a Republican who recently became a Democrat. There is a real possibility that, come November, a Democratic district will have two conservative candidates on the ballot.

Either candidate from Davis would be a superior choice for representing us in the Legislature, but only one of our local leaders will advance to the general election. As such, our community needs to rally behind one of our local candidates. As much as I like our current mayor, I feel that Dan Wolk, because of the name recognition associated with his family’s long record of public service, stands a better chance of advancing to the final round and winning in November.

It may seem like a trivial distinction, and I’m sure there are some policy differences that may tip the scales one way or another in the minds of some voters, but in the larger picture I’m supporting Dan in the primary simply because I believe he has a better chance of winning both in June and November and keeping the seat in the Democratic Party column where most of the electorate here is philosophically aligned.

Please join me in trying to keep our representative in Sacramento a true Democrat by voting for Dan Wolk this June.
