Wolk is a community-builder

I have only known Dan Wolk for a short time compared to many Davisites. Even though I only met Dan five years ago, I am sure that I hold him in the same esteem and admiration as people who have known him his whole life. We instantly became friends and have had many great conversations […]

Choose ‘can do’ public servants

In a campaign dominated by sleazy political tactics and cowardly consultants, I look forward to casting my vote for three candidates dedicated to open, transparent and honorable public service. For Yolo County Superior Court judge, I’ll be voting for Dan Maguire. Dan exemplifies the kind of judicial philosophy that we should want in all of […]

We know Sue, and support her

The most important issue facing the future City Council is the city budget, and for that reason it is vital to re-elect Sue Greenwald. In her 12 years of service, Sue has proved to be the only person on the council who fully understands city finances. If the previous council majorities of three had followed […]

He’ll have to govern by laws

City Council candidate Brett Lee should worry about that letter of support from Brian Johnson (“Take Luther’s advice from 1520,” May 15) which features a long quote from Martin Luther and then concludes by urging us to vote for Lee because Lee conforms to Luther’s idea of a good ruler — or something. Luther said […]

My choices in the June 5 election

The primary election is just around the corner on June 5. Dianne Feinstein and John Garamendi have proved themselves. I hope they will be elected to represent us in Congress. State Sen. Lois Wolk’s and Supervisor Jim Provenza’s leadership are well recognized and no one is challenging them. Mariko Yamada has been always committed to […]

The tobacco wars, continued

By Lance Armstrong On May 31, the World Health Organization marks World No Tobacco Day. This year’s theme: tobacco industry interference. For evidence of that interference, we need look no further than our own back yard. On June 5, the California Cancer Research Act — Proposition 29 — will be voted up or down by […]

Not exactly farewell to Afghanistan, but close to it

The issue: U.S. plans a noncombat presence for another 10 years but NATO already has a foot out the door As much as any event, this weekend’s NATO summit in Chicago will mark a formal beginning of the end of the war in Afghanistan. The foreign forces, now numbering about 130,000, are to be out […]

I’ll vote for Greenwald, Maguire

Letter writers amaze me with the ways they dress up their message that, “I’m voting for this candidate, and you should, too.” I’ll be direct: I’m voting for Sue Greenwald for council, and Dan Maguire for judge. I agree with Sue on a lot of issues, and I feel she always brings her intelligence, analytical […]

Frerichs has a record of service

I think The Enterprise missed the boat on its recommendations for the City Council. I can agree with the recommendations for current Council members Dan Wolk and Sue Greenwald, but I totally disagree with your third choice. You missed out by not recommending Lucas Frerichs, who currently chairs the Davis Planning Commission, where he has […]

We enthusiastically support Brett Lee for City Council. We have been impressed that Brett really listens to the concerns of citizens. He looks you in the eye and does not interrupt. He is willing to look anew at any problem if the questioner has a different view. The City Council needs less ego and more […]
