Letters to editor

Why Bertani for supervisor role?

If City Councilwoman Pam Bertani really wanted to put her “community first,” she would remain on the Fairfield City Council. That is where she could potentially do the most good. In running for county supervisor, she continually states that the 3rd District has experienced “another shooting.”

Bertani said she ran for City Council for two reasons: to stop crime and revitalize downtown. Crime has risen under her watch and more people are being killed. The only visible improvement in the downtown is a vacant lot that now has a picket fence around it. Her solution to solving crime is to have more town hall meetings. Her solution to revitalizing downtown remains completely unclear.

But she wants to be our supervisor, a position that puts her even further away from solving the problems she believes need solving. Why? Could it be the $90,000 raise she would receive? Or the stepping stone to state office she might gain? She has never mentioned what she would do for Suisun City, which is in the district. Nor has she stated what she would do for the unincorporated county, which is the place a supervisor actually governs and where I live.

Why would we elect a person to higher office who (a) hasn’t even filled out a first term, (b) hasn’t delivered on her promises, (c) has taken no initiative to create a single job and (d) reacts to every issue by holding a meeting and nothing more.

If Pam Bertani wants a promotion, in my opinion, she needs to earn it.

    Alexandra, you nailed it. I wholly believe even if she hadn't kept all of her promises that she made when she ran for city council she would be a better candidate if she could at least finish her term. Maybe she could complete some of those promises if she wasn't so busy running a campaign for a pay raise. Many of those that voted for her really believed her when she made those promises.

    Bertani has two years left on the council to repair her reputation as a do-nothing politician. If this site is representative of a majority voice among voters, she is doomed. She's darn sure going to get destroyed in the Supervisor race.

    I am glad our voters are intelligent enough to see through Bertani's fake promises. She wants to run for Mayor if she loses the supervisory election, what a wanna be. She plays her minority card and theough her husbnd, uses the blck church caucas to get sympathy. Apparantly she has some people fooled, but not the rest of us. I hope her last two years on council are her last in politics. It is no secret she has closed her own downtown business and lost her clientelle, she is no longer getting any work as an attorney. She is looking for a new pay day, on our dime. She says she left Oakland to come to Fairfield to raise her family, and in the same breath she says, she feels Fairfield is so bad she would be safer in Oakland. Really? Go back to Oakland.

    Sal the sad thing is that those of us that comment on the letters to the editor are but a small voice in fairfield and the rest of those that vote i think will believe what they read and see in the campaign advertisement that they see popping up all around the area and what their union tells them. I do hope that people are well informed about her and can see that she is only in this for her self. Let her finish out her last 2 years on the city council and then we can see if she is worthy of another office

    I'm voting for Bertani. She will turn this place into Detroit or Chicagoland quicker then Spering will!

    I am trying to be fair in my decision, trying to read all the facts, but am leaning toward what the rest of you think, and am leaning toward Spering, who has done a lot for Suisun and the county, and has not bailed from local politics, which I am sure is on HER agenda. Plus she is counting on her pretty face being on all her posters to get her the vote, not mine it looks like.

    SK not that looks have anything to do with it, but pretty face? Really? I know beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder but Bertani is my opinion pretty bad looking.

    I agree looks have nothing to do with it, but Bertani is anything but good looking. She needs to spend some of her campaign money on a make over, starting with those teeth!
