I am pleased to write to offer my 100% support to Yolo County Supervisor Jim Provenza’s re-election to the Board of Supervisors. Jim has been a friend and mentor to me over these past two decades in his role as Davis Joint Unified Schools Trustee and county supervisor.
I was closely affiliated with Jim as I moved through my community activities as Davis High School social sciences teacher, where he never failed to provide the professional support and guidance from his spot on the board of education. In my roles on the Yolo County Grand Jury and planning commission, I could always count on Supervisor Provenza to provide an honest appraisal of the political landscape in the county.
Jim has proven himself to be one of the finest representatives of the regional interests of the Davis community while serving on the Board of Supervisors, at the same time taking a global view of the needs of our entire county. He follows in the footsteps of some very capable Davis-based county leaders, such as Betsy Marchand, Helen Thomson, Lois Wolk, David Rosenberg and Mariko Yamada. I would place Jim Provenza in the same category of dedicated and knowledgeable leadership we have come to appreciate in our homegrown leaders.
I will be supporting Supervisor Jim Provenza in the fast approaching election, and I encourage your readers to do the same.
