Analysis: Impasse on City Manager?

Sep 30, 2014

Since then, the Council met...

The Opportunity is Ours

By Doby Fleeman Even as a relatively new member of a family with 100-plus-year-old roots in the Davis business community, I tend to take the long view.

Sunday Commentary: City Budget Could Become Greatest Threat to Open Space, Environment

For the past several weeks, I have been reading about concerns that people have regarding city greenbelts and whether the development on Paso Fino will set a precedent for the city – which currently lacks a police on the sale of greenbelts – to sell off greenbelts for development.

Commentary:  The Choices Ahead For Davis

On Saturday, Rob White and I wrote what were really inadvertent companion pieces – even though we had not discussed what each other was writing. My piece, Time to Reengage the Public, focused on the city’s short-term need to pass a parcel tax and attempted to lay out the need for the city to...
