Sample Ballot for June 5, 2018 Election

MEMBER, CITY COUNCIL, CITY OF DAVIS

GLORIA PARTIDA


GLORIA PARTIDA Age: 55

Occupation: Scientist

I am a mom, scientist, small business owner, founder of a nonprofit, and committed community member. I’m running for City Council because I believe in providing a high quality of life for all residents.

In 1989 as a single mother of three, one with disabilities, I moved to Davis to better our opportunities. I attended UC Davis and as I studied and worked to support my family, I advocated for all students through, school site councils and other groups. I improved education for special- needs students, helped establish a community program for people with disabilities and founded a nonprofit to prevent hate crimes.

As a small business owner, I understand the demanding task of reconciling bottom lines with the need to preserve quality. We need analytical, compassionate people to maintain a sustainable fiscal system. As a UC Davis Neuroscientist, I’ve learned critical thinking, evidence-based decision making as well as efficiency.

In the years ahead, the city must navigate a recalcitrant housing crisis and fiscal deficit and challenging landscape for economic development. These challenges require a steadfast and courageous advocate for public service.

I am committed to bring out the best in Davis. I ask for your vote on June 5.
