There are important elections coming up that impact our Napa County towns. In the past, we have enjoyed the security of having local people fill our political needs. This election year is different. In the state Assembly race, all the candidates are from Yolo County. Quite a change for us.
I am supporting Don Saylor, a Davis resident, for state Assembly. He has a depth of experience way beyond those of any of his opponents and, I believe, is the best person to represent us in the Legislature. He has held a steady stream of elective offices beginning with the Davis School Board on to the City Council of Davis, becoming mayor and then was elected Yolo County Supervisor. During that term, he was appointed chairman of the Sacramento Area of Council of Governments.
I mention these achievements because they show his dedication to public service, which I believe is important in anyone seeking public office.
Don recognizes the needs of our county, and has spent countless hours here listening to the people and giving important information and innovative ideas on how to make Napa County more effective and efficient.
As our Assemblyman, he would give attention to the expressions voiced by our community leaders. Like all public servants, he has a list of things that are of great interest to him. His non-exhaustive list includes pubic education, universal health overage, support of working families, agricultural economy, the environment and transportation.
To find out more about him, you can view his website DonSaylor.org. Please join me in supporting Don Saylor for state Assembly.
