I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mr. Willie Turner. I reside in Cordelia. I have worked as a construction supervisor in San Fransisco for many years. Currently I am retired. I am a family man who supported my family and earned the respect to be a good provider. I also had respect from my crew because I gave my crew respect. There were occasions I worked with them to accomplish the task.
I at this time like to point out that Pam Bertani does not have the respect or the best interest of this community nor city government.
Pam Bertani’s fellow council members and Mayor Harry Price endorse incumbent Supervisor Jim Spering in District 3. They do not have confidence in her as a candidate.
When Pam Bertani was a candidate for City Council, I spoke highly of her, trusted her and voted for her. During a meeting last year, I spoke against having to pay taxes on maintenance to the city that I believe is not being done. I spoke to her in a decent manner and she replied, “Who are you?” in a condescending manner. I think elected officials should respect citizens because it demonstrates politeness.
Pam Bertani has not lived up to her duty to the city of Fairfield. She wishes to seek county government and does not have the inclination for the Board or Supervisors. She does not care about any citizen except herself.
I will not vote for Jim Spering because I do not live in his district. I have friends who are ranchers, farmers and business people who say he is responsive. Pam Bertani is politically immature.
I wish you well, Jim Spering. Pam Bertani requires growing up as an elected official. I regret that I voted for her. I won’t make that mistake again.
