Frerichs is a thoughtful leader

I am impressed with candidate Lucas Frerichs, who chairs the Planning Commission. Over the last four months of 2011, 30-plus community members and I spoke before the commission in an effort to protect our city’s telecommunications ordinance. Throughout the three meetings when the issue was deliberated, it was clear he had done his homework. He […]

The Dan Wolk I know

I have been a resident of Davis since birth. For the record, I currently volunteer as campaign manager for Dan Wolk. I met Dan nearly 20 years ago while we were students at Emerson, but it was at Davis High School that I really got to know him. While his long list of service endeavors […]

No friend of senior citizens

Sue Greenwald is no friend of senior citizens. She has attempted to block many efforts to pursue better housing options for seniors. As one example, Greenwald tried to block 15 very low-income seniors each from getting their rents reduced by $303 a month at Eleanor Roosevelt Circle. To seniors earning $8,000 to $15,000 a year, […]

Sue Greenwald deserves another term on the City Council. She has a proven record of being independent and dedicated to our city. Last year, many citizens of South Davis voiced concern about a high-density housing complex to be built at the corner of Drummond and Chiles. Since the project’s inception, Greenwald was the only council […]

Sue works to protect downtown

Recently our downtown has felt a swath of store closings, including some of its largest and most established retailers. The hat trick of recession, increased Internet commerce and competition from Target has been too much for several shops, and these factors are not lessening. Anyone who misses those stores, fears the next closings or is […]

Yes on Prop. 29, Measure D

The expensive and shiny certificates we receive in the mail every day against Prop. 29 urge us to read the “fine print.” The fine print in the very bottom sentence of the flier, after all the endorsements, reveals “Major funding by Philip Morris USA and R.J.Reynolds Tobacco Company.” These are the tobacco companies whose $120 […]

Lots of reasons to support Sue

We are voting for Sue Greenwald. Why? She has consistently worked to create a vibrant, diverse downtown appealing to both Davisites and visitors. She has consistently supported good infill development rather than expensive fringe sprawl, and plans for Hunt-Wesson that would provide significant mixed-use opportunities for economic development and job creation. She took the time […]
