Put sanity back into government; elect Roberts

I think we all are fed up with the partisan bickering that is tying Congress in knots. Fortunately, we have a candidate for District 3 of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors who eschews such petty gamesmanship and works diligently to bring people together for real solutions.

Dave Roberts has a proven record of bipartisan accomplishment, be it on the Solana Beach City Council, where he brought disparate groups together to achieve pension reform, on the San Diego County Consolidated Transportation Services Agency, of which he chairs the board of directors, where he has helped launch public/private transit opportunities for seniors, persons with disabilities and social service recipients in San Diego County to meet their transportation needs — or any of the many civic, volunteer or business organizations with which he works.

He even successfully chaired the board of directors for the San Dieguito River Valley Joint Powers Authority in 2008, during which time renovation efforts began after 62 percent of the park and its infrastructure burned in the 2007 fires.

Let’s put sanity back into government. Let’s elect Dave to the County Board of Supervisors. We all benefit greatly when the focus is on solutions, not ideological stubbornness.
