I am writing in support of Colin Walsh for Davis City Council, District 2. He is a staunch advocate for transparency, accountability, and well-planned responsible city growth. These are all qualities I believe to be paramount in a city council member.
Colin supports farmland preservation and has long supported putting peripheral growth and green field development to a popular vote even before it was on the ballot in 2000 as Measure J. He has and is currently working to prevent further sprawl and to encourage infill without stifling economic growth.
Your vote for Colin as a council member will elect an official who will listen with respect to differing points of view, research the issues, carefully analyze and vote responsibly.
As council member for the City of Winters, I believe these are essential qualities necessary for effective and representative city leadership. I have known Colin for many years and observed his development from the time he worked as a para educator at Holmes Junior High, where I worked for more than 30 years. He demonstrated competence and initiative at Holmes and has continued building these qualities.
I strongly encourage your vote for Colin Walsh for Davis City Council.
