I am writing to endorse Albert Vallecillo for Winters City Council. My support is based on several factors relevant to the citizenry and our shared future.
First, Albert offers a unique blend of city-related policy experience and decision-making combined with deep connections to civic life in Winters (i.e., Hispanic Advisory Committee, Planning Commission, Keep Winters). These leadership experiences, and others, make him especially well qualified to serve on the city council.
Second, Albert and I worked together on the Keep Winters Winters Steering Committee for almost two years during which time I observed how he engaged with fellow committee members. Without question, Albert is a clear and rational thinker who is consistently willing to listen and consider alternative perspectives. At the same time, Albert is not reticent to express his views nor does he “go with the flow” without being clear and explicit about his perspectives. Albert was an engaged and thoughtful KWW colleague. I am confident he would bring these same qualities to the City Council.
Finally, Albert is a worker. He has the mental and physical energy to serve on the Winters City Council and to do what it takes to serve our community well. I encourage you to join me in voting for Albert Vallecillo for Winters City Council on or before Nov. 8.
