I am supporting Jim Spering for supervisor. He is a problem-solver and a voice of reason. He has a great ability to listen, bring diverse groups together and produce results that benefit our communities. He is not afraid to tackle challenges and debate issues that are important to the future of Solano County.

As supervisor, he has worked tirelessly with the Sheriff’s Office to deal with the release of state prisoners into our county. He has the support of law enforcement and their endorsement due to his efforts in fighting crime and protecting our citizens.

He is a leader in transportation. No one has delivered more projects for our county than Jim Spering. He has attended many meetings on a regional basis so Solano County is included in past and future transportation spending. He has spearheaded improvements to Interstate 80 because he understands how many dollars the highway improvements bring to our community for local business and local jobs.

He works long hours to improve the stability of the county budget and provide safe neighborhoods for our families. Most importantly, I have found Jim to be honest, hardworking and fair.

I will not vote for Pam Bertani and can only support the right person for the job, which is Jim Spering, who has a proven track record and the experience to make our community strong and safe.

    "Vote for Jim Spering – the best choice"... the best choice for Jim Spering... but not the best choice for the people of Solano County.

    Jim Spering has always done a good job with our Tax money if it were not for Jim we would of been in the Red as most other countys when the housing market fell. Yes I can find faults and he does not vote as I would wish 100% of the time but he is my choice and if you are thinking he should be yours.

    If you want to see inprovment here in Solano county Vote for Jim Spering, If you want your Tax Money watched over vote for Jim Spearing. If you think Midnight Basketball will solve our crime here in Solano than I guess Pam is your candidate.

    You don't live in Suisun City and aren't living with his cronies and results of crapy roads that have big pot holes, crackled side walks car wrecks, and weeds at abandoned houses Not to mention the redevelopment area he extended to all of Suisun but didn't include repairing all off Suisun JUST the part where HE owned property, just like the new rail station So when I'm having to pay off the redevelopment funds that Pothole Pete spent because Big Jim said he should keep and spend the money is Bull GET RID OF ALL OF THEM!

    The Mister and Bob are correct that Spering and his cronies need to go! I live in Suisun and am active in two taxpayer groups and know well that Spering and his cronies help themselves, not the public. For real improvement, vote for Oman. And BTW Glen Faison, the editor, I put in a letter for Oman over two weeks ago and I have seen multiple letters for Spering, but not one for Oman. Is this balanced journalism, Solano County style? Please publish my letter and any others for Michael Oman too!
