Lets keep Elizabeth Patterson as our mayor.
Because of Elizabeths hard work, she has provided us with a vision and
leadership for how we see Benicias future.
Elizabeth has lived in Benicia for over 30 years and has been hard working on
the Planning Commission, the City Council and as mayor.
She has provided leadership with the General Plan and insists that the plan be
followed. (Its the law.)
She has a good balance with both the business community and her love for the
environment. She knows the businesses and understands the needs of the community.
She has provided leadership with assuring a safe and reliable water supply,
protecting open space and her efforts to inform Benicians of the Crude-By-Rail
project, which would have added not only more pollution but would have affected
every town and river the tracks crossed on the way to the refinery. She was
attacked by her opponent for bringing it to the attention of the public.
Elizabeth has shown a balance and loving concern for our Benicia, our businesses
and our environment.
We can make a difference by supporting her as mayor, so she can continue along
with us, to make a difference.
Genevieve Giblin, Benicia
