A Winters Express Letter to the Editor

I agree with Planning Commissioner Nancy Northrop’s assessment in her Sept. 14 “Letter” to the Winters Express asserting, “the city is wrestling with major issues…”

As someone who has followed the Winters City Council, both as a concerned resident and as one who covered council meetings for the Winters Express, the city seems to be at a crossroad where intelligent leadership is now more important than ever.

This is why I am voting for Richard Casavecchia for one of the three opening city council seats.

Major problems need major problem solvers and Richard possesses the attributes and record of accomplishments to serve this community as a member of the Winters City Council.

A military veteran, Richard served in leadership positions as a commissioned officer in the California National Guard and deployed to Ukraine as part of a training team to provide combat training to Ukrainian forces.

Richard holds an MBA from UC Davis and a degree in criminal justice from CSU Sacramento. For community service, he sits on the Winters Healthcare Board of Directors and is a member of Winters Rotary.

Richard’s background and professional skillset are steeped in complex financial and data analysis, strategic planning, accounting, project development and personnel management – all areas where Winters is grappling with challenges.

Vested in Winters, Richard is married to Winters High School teacher Courtney Casavecchia and they have a four-year-old daughter.

Richard will add intelligence, management experience and a dimension to the city council much needed to contend with our major issues.
