In support of Wendy Root Askew
I urge voters in Marina, Seaside, and South Salinas to vote for Wendy Root Askew for County Supervisor. Even though I don’t live in Wendy’s District 4, I have worked with her for over 10 years on reducing the teenager use of tobacco products in Monterey County. She has helped me get Tobacco Retail License Ordinances adopted throughout 75% of the tobacco retailers in Monterey County, keeping kids safe and holding businesses accountable. She is well-respected by her colleagues and was skillful at guiding me through the diplomatic process of various city and county committees to get things done. Wendy knows how to work collaboratively to deliver results and always share the credit for success. A vote for Wendy Askew will allow her to continue working to keep all Monterey County residents healthy and safe.
