Brown for Su­per­vi­sor

Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - OPINION -

As a for­mer Beni­cia City Coun­cil mem­ber and Mayor for the City of Beni­cia, as well as a board mem­ber and Chair­man of the Solano Trans­porta­tion Au­thor­ity, I have had the op­por­tu­nity to work with my fel­low elected col­leagues. Some were ex­tremely talented and hard-work­ing, while oth­ers were not.

We here in Solano County have been for­tu­nate to have had one of those talented and hard-work­ing types serv­ing on our Board of Su­per­vi­sors for the past four years, which is why I am de­lighted to en­dorse and vote for the re-elec­tion of Su­per­vi­sor Mon­ica Brown.

Two years ago, when Re­gional Mea­sure Three, a bridge toll tax in­crease was on the bal­lot, I was asked by our Beni­cia

League of Women Vot­ers to serve on a panel dis­cus­sion of the pros and cons of this mea­sure at our Public Li­brary. Su­per­vi­sor Brown, who cast a “no” vote when our board of su­per­vi­sors voted to sup­port plac­ing this pro­posal on the bal­lot, at­tended this fo­rum and pre­sented a strong and well-pre­pared op­po­si­tion to this ad­di­tional tax on Solano County vot­ers and tax­pay­ers.

I have con­tin­ued to be im­pressed with how Su­per­vi­sor Brown has fought to en­sure that our District 2 tax dol­lars come back to the district rather than dis­pro­por­tion­ately go­ing up county.

Mon­ica Brown is a fighter and an in­tense ad­vo­cate for her district and her con­stituents.

Please join me in vot­ing for Mon­ica Brown as our District 2 Su­per­vi­sor.

— Jerry Hayes/For­mer Mayor,

City of Beni­cia
