Cheers and Jeers: Thanks, Joe, for your leadership

We offer our cheers and jeers for local newsmakers as we look back over the previous week:

CHEERS to departing Mayor Joe Krovoza, who served this city with distinction during his four years on the Davis City Council. Under his leadership, our city took positive steps in tackling our biggest budgetary challenge — affording the pensions and medical benefits that will be paid over the coming years to retiring public workers.

Krovoza also led the effort to partner with the city of Woodland on a joint surface water project, ensuring a stable and high-quality source of drinking water for succeeding generations. And he helped bring to Davis a very capable city manager, Steve Pinkerton, who ably handled municipal affairs during the Great Recession.

Joe, we’ll miss you.

And CHEERS to newly sworn-in Mayor Dan Wolk and Mayor Pro Tem Robb Davis, both of whom are brimming over with enthusiasm and confidence as they tackle their new duties. Forge ahead!

JEERS to the shameful behavior of a St. James Catholic Church priest, who pleaded guilty last week to one felony count of unlawful sex with a minor. The Rev. Hector Coria Gonzalez, 45, engaged in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl who told authorities she did not want him prosecuted.

But a criminal complaint against Coria alleged that the illegal behavior occurred in a home, a car and in the rectory of the church on B Street. He has been placed on leave by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento, will serve three years of probation as well as 90 days in county jail and must register as a sex offender.

CHEERS to world-class athlete Kim Conley, a UC Davis graduate who continues to excel on the track. A 2012 U.S. Olympian, she won the women’s 10,000 meters at the U.S. Track and Field Outdoor Championships last week at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium.

Conley, 28, needed to chase down one other runner in the final stretch and said the support of the hometown crowd was a key to her victory.

She is focusing on the 10,000 meters instead of the 5,000 to keep her options open for the 2016 Olympics. Kim, your Davis fans are behind you all the way!
