Community values to be addressed at candidates’ forum

By
From page A5 | April 29, 2014 |

Davis Community Church will host a community values forum for candidates for the Davis City Council at 6 p.m. Monday, May 12, in the church sanctuary, 412 C St.

Questions will focus on the candidates’ understanding of the values held by the greater Davis community as well as personal characteristics the candidates possess for leading the city. The forum will focus less on specific issues and more on underlying values and priorities that guide the candidates’ decision-making.

Topics may include social justice, conflict management, communication, social ethics and leadership style.

All five candidates — Sheila Allen, Robb Davis, John Munn, Daniel Parrella and Rochelle Swanson — have agreed to participate.

Questions will be pre-selected. Community members may submit questions on the church website at dccpres.org/community-values-forum.

    Question: As a City Councilmember, how would you prevent a recurrence of the Crown Castle "debacle" that occurred during the first six months of 2012? Back then, an extensive cell-phone Distributed Antenna System (DAS) of 25 cell-phone antennae was backed into the City proper over the strong objections of a majority of Davis Citizens. Under threat of a lawsuit from Crown Castle staff (including Attorney Jonathan L. Kramer) and Federal Communication Commission (FCC) dictates, the existing City Council "crumbled"! As a result, the following Principles of Community were violated: (1) neighbors were pitted against neighbors concerning the siting of the antennae throughout the City; (2) Davis citizens were forbidden to comment about the adverse health aspects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) pursuant to the installation of the antennae adjacent to or near individual residences; and, (3) the long-standing Telecommunications Ordinance of the City (requiring a 500 foot setback of cell phone antennae from homes) was summarily "dismissed." The tyrannical process just described reflects negatively on the past Davis City Council and shows a total lack of respect for the rights and values of the citizens of Davis,

    1) The "no EMF discussion" rule is due to Federal law, not the City. Allowing discussion of EMF would have guaranteed any City decision would have been tossed in court. 2) It was very funny how many of the "EMF dooms us all" speakers were carrying cellphones.
