It is with great pleasure that I endorse Josh Chapman for Davis City Council in District 5. Although I don’t live in District 5, and therefore cannot vote for Josh, I do work in District 5, and I know first-hand what a strong and committed advocate Josh will be for South Davis. As the librarian at Montgomery Elementary School, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Josh and his wonderful family.
Josh volunteers at our school and works hard to support our entire school community. He understands the diversity of South Davis and has the experience we need on the City Council to be a voice for our marginalized families and community members. His background shows that he knows how to work toward inclusivity. Developing a stronger partnership between the city and the school district is more important now than ever. Josh will help build that partnership through vision and collaboration. He will also keep the idea of a County Library in South Davis alive and work to make it a reality.
Now is the time for new, strong leadership for South Davis. Vote Josh Chapman for City Council, District 5.
