I am a Democrat who did not know Bruce McPherson until after I withdrew as a candidate for 5th District supervisor last winter. I have since come to know Bruce personally, and I now fully support him as the only viable candidate in the race for this county’s 5th District supervisor seat. Bruce combines a deep understanding of the challenges facing our local communities with a unique ability to always find effective solutions to difficult issues. He is highly respected for his collaborative leadership approach, his skill as a negotiator, and his long history of bipartisan accomplishments as a former California legislator and secretary of state. Eric Hammer can take credit for his focus on local issues, but he remains unproven in the larger arena. Bruce’s competence as a leader has been repeatedly proven over the years, and his experience spans a far broader, deeper, and more complex landscape. We are in very difficult times currently, and we desperately need capable, proven, and ethical leadership going forward. Please join me as a Democrat voting for Bruce McPherson for supervisor, 5th District, Santa Cruz County.
