He will get the much needed fire pre-planning, with firebreaks and water pipes, accomplished.
• In the wake of 2017, we learned that we are not adequately pre-planning for our future. We are not preventing these fires. David was a firefighter in Glen Ellen and Kenwood. He felt the heat. He breathed the smoke. He was trained and educated in fire fighting, and fire pre-planning. For David, fire pre-planning is not an imaginary exercise. He will get the much needed fire pre-planning, with firebreaks and water pipes, accomplished.
• David has a general contractor’s license. He has paved roads. For him, this is not an academic activity. He knows how to get the pavement to the pot hole. He will fix the roads in Sonoma.
• As a Farm Management Consultant, at heart David loves the land. He consults on Sustainable Farming, and Environmentally Friendly land use practices. And, he understands that the land needs to serve the people. The Sonoma Development Center in Glen Ellen is being transferred to the county for disposition. This is over 800 acres. David wants to make this into a balanced use people oriented park.
David Cook is the kind of hard working representative we want on the Board of Supervisors.
