During the time we were privileged to have her in county government and I was serving as Land Use Committee chair of the South County Advisory Council, I got to know her well and learned to respect and admire her. She was that anomaly, a true public servant: intelligent, accessible, responsive, evenhanded and an articulate spokesperson for the people she represented, those without a voice or “friends in high places.”
She worked with her fellow supervisors to get things done and is sorely missed to this day.
I do not live in the city of Arroyo Grande, so I cannot vote for her myself, but I urge those of you who can vote in this election to not, through apathy or inattention, miss the opportunity to put this good public servant back in a position to serve you.
Get out and vote for Caren Ray for Arroyo Grande City Council!
