Valentine’s Vow

Decrying a “disappointingly negative” race for 2nd District Supervisor and attacks on his supporters, City Councilmember and supervisorial candidate Das Williams vowed to engage in “civil dialogue” about the contentious issues affecting the 2nd District. Flanked by Mayor Marty Blum and council colleagues Roger Horton and Grant House, Williams addressed a sparse gathering of supporters at the Courthouse on Tuesday, distributing Valentine’s candy and a “Clean Campaign Pledge,” in which he promised to remain focused on issues and refrain from the kind of personal criticism that he said has been directed at him during his political career.
