Mayor Patterson’s committmentBy Nancy Lund, Benicia
October 7, 2016
Dr. David Schultz wrote on Facebook: “Her (Elizabeth Patterson’s) re-election TRANSCENDS everyday politics. She places the common good above all.”
This election presents an opportunity for you to choose a person who has been steadfast on environmental issues (crude by rail), as well as future development of open spaces (Seeno and Arsenal properties).
These are just two examples of her commitment to preserving the small town feel of Benicia while encouraging diverse development that contributes to our financial stability. She has clearly stated her goals for the next four years, in contrast to her opponent whose goals are woefully missing from public review.
You have my vote, Elizabeth, as I know I can trust your commitment to the welfare of Benicia now, and in the future.Nancy Lund, Benicia
