Barbara Archer, parent and schools volunteer

"Sheila's positive attitude and can-do spirit infuse all her important community work. The City of Davis would benefit greatly from her sense of fairness, her vast community knowledge and her boundless energy to chart its course for the future."

Delaine Eastin, California SuperIntendent of Public Instruction (ret.)*

"I am so proud of Sheila for her excellent work on our school board. Bravo. I am thrilled she has decided to run for the city council. She is not aftraid to ask hard questions. She has an amazing work ethic, a brass backbone, brains and common sense. I know she will foster a closer working relationship between our city and our schools. Sheila Allen has my full support as a candidate for city council."

Susan Lovenburg, Davis Schools Trustee*

"I have served with Sheila on the Davis School Board for the past six years. I have witnessed firsthand how she governs with a level-head and steady hand, helping to shepherd the district through several years of state budget cuts. That knowledge and experience will now benefit the City of Davis. I wholeheartedly support Sheila for City Council."

Karolyn Ragsdale, parent and neighbor

"Sheila has boundless energy and a willingness to get things done. She is a true community organizer and would make an excellent addition to the city council."

Rick Gonzales, Jr., President, Yolo County Mexican American Concilio*

"Sheila Allen has been a school board member for nine years and has had to navigate deficit spending in balancing the budget every year while keeping core programs and all students, including our most at-risk, in mind. This will help her with the City Council budget as it goes through its version of fixing a budget with insufficient funding for needs. It will be tough to balance this budget but Sheila has the most experience in accomplishing this difficult task."

Shelly Bailes and Ellen Pontac, Marriage Equity leaders

"We are supporting Sheila Allen for Davis City Council"

"... We support Allen for the second seat, which was left open when Councilman Joe Krovoza decided not to run for a second term and jumped into the race for state Assembly District 4. A public health nurse and the executive director of the Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance, Allen has served as a Davis school trustee for nine years, guiding the district through the worst economic downturn in recent history.

She has experience coping with budget constraints while maintaining core services, which will be invaluable when the council deals with an estimated $1.5 million shortfall next fiscal year. She supports smart infill growth that would include affordable housing in the downtown core.

Allen has support from a long list of local and state political leaders, which shows that she understands that an effective legislator must be willing to collaborate with others to get things done. ..."
