Letter: A breath of fresh air

This is in reference to the forthcoming election on Nov. 3, and not the change of climate caused by regional fires. I mean the election of Colin Walsh to District 2 of the City Council.

For the past four years, the incumbent has reigned over the following events in Davis, each of which has contributed to a deterioration of public services:

  • Increased crime with particular reference to bike theft.
  • Chronic degradation of road conditions.
  • The Council approval of the U-Mall development despite a 7-to-0 opposition by the Planning Commission.
  • The BrightNight project, in which the city made a bad deal on valuable city-owned land.

Each of the above suggests a changing of the guard is needed at City Hall to encourage greater public participation and transparency over important decisions that affect our City and lifestyle.

Colin Walsh offers a ray of light in addressing these issues and more as we strive to re-engage our citizens with improved decision making and public services.
