Letter: A Conscientious Communicator for Supervisor

Linda Deos

By Jean Jackman

I happily endorse Linda Deos for Yolo County Supervisor and here’s why.

I have never, ever received an email from my current county supervisor, Jim Provenza. I get wonderfully informative emails from Don Saylor, who is not my supervisor. Most recently, I learned about the UC Davis Ready Plan, how the students are expected to conduct themselves. He provides a link to a recording of the Board of Supervisors meetings, reminds us of ways to conserve electricity and we learn of emergency alert tests in the greater Winters area. Linda Deos pledges to be a good communicator and send emails to her constituents.

For nearly a decade, we have been represented by five male supervisors. It’s time for diversity on our board and Linda is an energetic, informed person to start that happening and restore some balance. Her priorities include affordable housing for seniors, families and young people and more affordable childcare for all income levels. She will create a local green new deal to address climate change which is increasingly serious. Linda believes Yolo County can become a rural innovation hub.

Linda has even rolled up her sleeves to work on open space restoration doing the hard, physical jobs like weeding and planting.

Please join me in voting for Linda Deos to represent District 4 on the Yolo County Board of Supervisors.  We can use her lawyerly skills and her demonstrated commitment to children’s issues, social justice and healthcare.

    I have never, ever received an email from my current county supervisor, Jim Provenza.

    That’s funny, I get tons of email from Provenza, and I can’t remember if he’s my supervisor or not.  Is being on someone’s email list some sort of standard for electability?  If so, ask to be on his email list, and vote Provenza!

    I also receive numerous emails from Jim Provenza, keeping me informed about things that he is doing as a Supervisor.  He also calls me to follow up when I have attended meetings and spoken about issues that are important to me.  When he reaches out, it is often to clarify something I said or to find out more.  It is a conversation, rather than him trying to convince me of a particular stance on issues.   Don’s emails are different and he never asks my opinion.  He is not my representative, so I don’t know if that is a real issue.  If you want to talk to Jim Provenza, you should just email him or call him.  It’s not hard to reach him.

    I emailed Jim Provenza about the DA’s budget today. He wrote me back in less than two hours with a clear explanation of what happened. By the way, Jim seconded Don’s motion to move several hundred thousand dollars from the DA’s special funds to the general fund. The motion lost on a 3-2 vote.
