Our wonderful City of Winters is at an important crossroad: The city is wrestling with major issues including drought, managing growth, planning for fire and flood control, funding local municipal operations and improving housing security.
Having someone with experience and a history of effective leadership on the City Council is so critical at this time. That is why I strongly support Lisa Baker for one of the three open seats in the upcoming election.
Ms. Baker knows Winters and understands its issues, having served the community in a variety of professional and volunteer capacities. As a volunteer she was always involved in Youth Day, Fourth Friday, Earthquake Street Festival, Friends of the Library and more. She has been on the Winters Planning Commission since 2013 and is currently the Vice Chairperson.
Ms. Baker has worked as both a consultant and a corporate officer serving local governments and national associations on affordable housing and community access to government services. She has frequently been recognized for her work including being named a 2019 Woman of the Year by Congressman Garamendi, being a recipient of a 2019 Woman of Persistence from the League of California Cities Women’s Caucus, and was recognized in 2020 by the California Legislature for her work in Yolo County.
In summary, Ms. Baker would be an outstanding City Council member bringing heart, experience and an open ear to the council. She will work to be faithful to the things that are important to Winters — its volunteerism, neighborly environment, small town “can do” spirit — while helping the City navigate the issues before it. For our town, please support Lisa Baker by voting for her on Nov. 8.
