Support Spering for supervisor

As chairman of the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce, I am supporting Supervisor Jim Spering for re-election.

This is why: His track record for effectively getting projects done in Solano County, based on his hard-earned relationships and reputation with regional boards as well as local elected officials and administrators has produced jobs and economic progress for our district and all of Solano County.

Some of the boards and agencies Spering participates on are:

  • Metropolitan Transportation Commission
  • Association of Bay Area Governments, executive committee
  • Capitol Corridor Committee, chairman of the board
  • Bay Conservation and Development Commission
  • Bay Area Air Quality Management District
  • Solano Transportation Authority
  • SolTrans – a Vallejo/Benicia cooperative effort public transit system

Spering has a hard-earned reputation with these agencies for delivering projects after he has secured the funding. Because of that, he receives support from other board members throughout the Bay Area for new projects and we benefit with money, delivered projects and new jobs created, more than 4,000 since he has taken office. These have been for Solano County residents!

Some projects delivered with his support are the new Clay Bank Jail, a new clinic in Vacaville, the Highway 12/Jameson Canyon reconstruction and the new Interstate 80 truck scales. These are only a few examples.

I am a practical business person who recognizes success through hard work and earned respect. Spering has produced and I recognize the time it has taken him to earn the reputation he has throughout the Bay Area. I do not want to throw that away and to start all over again.

Please vote with me and re-elect Supervisor Jim Spering for the 3rd District Solano County Board of Supervisors seat.

Steve Lessler

President, The Lessler Group

Chairman, Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce

    Mr. Mister. What about Mr Lessker's letter is not correct? If you think you can do better, please step out and show us.

    Some of the major contribution Jim Spering has made that was not mention in this article. He voted to give the Solano Transportation Authority full imminent domain powers, in which the STA does not answer to anyone, As working county workers wages were reduce, he stated that he works hard for his money and does not believe his salary should be reduce. Is this the team player that I want to vote for. For the 3rd District Solano County Board of Supervisors seat I will leave it as it is presented -blank.

    Would you rather eminent domain power remain with Caltrans? I don't know about you but if I were a property owner in this situation I would rather make my case to a local elected Board than a faceless tool in Sacramento. What about you?

    The Mister made the same comment to another letter supporting Jim Spering. I guess he doesn't have anything else to say. I already voted by mail for Spering and am glad I did!

    Both Spering and Lessler love to live off the taxpayer's dime. No wonder they speak well of one another. Make Spering and Lessler get real jobs by voting for Oman! The voters didn't even want Lessler on the FF City Council, need I say more?

    Riverboat Jim Spering is the Government-Media complex approved Agenda 21 Common Core Gluten Free Carbon Neutral Organic Sustainable Undocumented Worker Alternative Lifestyle Diversity candidate. Spering is the face and poster boy of broken State and Local Government along with his equally loathsome pals.
