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, […]

She stood up for South Davis

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 […]

Brett Lee seeks solutions

Let me see? Why do I support Brett Lee for City Council? First, it is because he has ideas on how to solve to our serious budget crisis. Second, because he will work for a plan to bring us quality and affordable water. Brett does not accept contributions from special interests or developers. Not because […]

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 […]

My friend Lucas Frerichs

As a life-long Davisite, I love the city of Davis — our community, my extended family. I am voting for Lucas Frerichs because we share the same values and commitment to keep Davis uniquely lovable and financially stable. We’ve known each other since he graduated from Davis High School and started working at the Davis Food […]

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 […]

Greenwald understands money

Sue Greenwald’s questioning of City Council decisions should be acknowledged as her way of fighting for the citizens of Davis. She should be commended for this. Being outnumbered in the political decision process is difficult, if not demoralizing, but when you look back on her record, Sue’s objections were in the best financial interest of […]

She demands straight answers

As a relative newcomer to Davis, I am both amused and surprised by the apparent lack of maturity and civility surrounding the race for City Council. I find it very distracting, especially as it pertains to Councilwoman Sue Greenwald. Although her style of governing has sometimes been controversial (she is not a traditional politician), I […]

Maguire has good judgment

Upon realizing that Superior Court Judge Dan Maguire was up for re-election, I resolved to write The Enterprise encouraging readers to vote for Dan, whom I met in 2005. A touch of procrastination set in, but recent events reminded me why I wanted to write a letter: Dan Maguire is ideally qualified to serve our […]

Let’s put a new face on council

I am supporting the election of Brett Lee to the Davis City Council. His intelligence, integrity and willingness to listen to all sides of an issue before arriving at a decision will serve us well. He worked actively to support the water rate referendum to stop the council’s water rate increase, believing that the people […]
