I keep hearing that the 1st District Supervisor incumbent is a good neighbor: he picks up discarded needles, helps selected charities with fundraising.
Cliff Berkowitz is also a good neighbor. He also has helped numerous charities as an MC, an auctioneer, and through the power of radio. Cliff started the national Stop the Violence, Start the Healing campaign, and has helped local organizations ranging from the Discovery Museum and Food for People, to the Kinetic race and Stand Down. (Speaking of Stand Down, when a disabled veteran risked being homeless, Cliff invited him to live in his own home.)
But being a good neighbor is not a supervisor’s job, nor is being a good neighbor dependent upon being supervisor. A supervisor’s job is to make well-researched policy decisions that benefit the entire county.
It is time we replace the incumbent with a supervisor committed to respect, transparency, and informed decisions that will protect our forests, clean water, ag lands, and unique character.
Let’s free the incumbent to play ball with his grandkids and be a good neighbor. Let’s vote for Cliff Berkowitz on March 3rd.
