Bertani mum on possible county supervisor run

By
January 22, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — City Councilwoman Pam Bertani will announce Jan. 29 at the Solano County Government Center whether she’ll run for the supervisor post now held by Jim Spering.

“I can say it once. I can say it definitively. I can say it publicly to all,” she said Tuesday.

Bertani had spoken Jan. 11 in Vallejo about a county supervisor campaign and later said she was “strongly, seriously considering” running for the 3rd District that covers a large part of Fairfield and parts of Suisun City.

Spering has said Bertani phoned him before the holidays and asked to meet. At the Starbucks across from the Solano County Government Center in Fairfield, she spoke about running for supervisor, said Spering, who has since announced he’ll seek re-election.

Suisun City Mayor Pete Sanchez, who said in November that he would run for the county supervisor post if Spering decided not to seek re-election, said whatever Bertani does won’t matter to him.

“Nothing will change on my part,” Sanchez said.

He said he’ll support Spering and concentrate on his own re-election effort in Suisun City.

Candidates can take out forms to gather signatures in place of a filing fee to run for the county supervisor seat. The county elections office said Fairfield resident Alvina Sheeley, who ran for the Fairfield-Suisun School District board of trustees in 2011 but did not win, had taken out forms. Sheeley said in a later voicemail that she will not run for county supervisor.

    Well as someone said in another article related to this, what has she accomplished yet???? Will she have served at least one entire term by then, or be another inexperienced political, as Barack turns out to be, even though I really like him and did vote for him both times, but now regret that decision. And if she becomes un-mum, we ought to know where she stands on the mess others have allowed us to get into concerning the Bay Area Air Resources Board, and is she willing to do something to separate us from that???? We, many of us want to know???!!! I will not vote for anyone that does not address this, and will pass the word as much as I can.

    If she finished her commitments to the City and made good on her promises, like bringing business to downtown and cleaning up Parkway Gardens, then I could see it. So far, she got a picket fence put up on a vacant lot and we all can see how Parkway Gardens is turning out. I would assume her opponent might highlight this in the campaign. Also, Fairfield is going through some important issues, including replacing its City Manager. Seems like jumping ship right now would look selfish and opportunistic.
