I want to congratulate Fred Keeley for his support for Bruce McPherson and Bruce for earning Fred’s support that transcended party lines. Fred and Bruce worked together to find funds for Junction Park in Boulder Creek, the Felton Covered Bridge, the Tannery Arts Center, and the Marine Sanctuary Exploration Center in Santa Cruz. Bruce and Fred worked tirelessly to raise funds to protect and preserve for future generations the 6,800 acres of our north coast lands with its ecological diversity and viewsheds. Fred and Bruce supported development of Long Marine Lab that is a major community resource in marine public education, and a leader in research on coastal and marine issues.
Bruce has done excellent work on our behalf and has a history of significant accomplishments that cross party lines. Bruce will bring this proven record to the Board of Supervisors. We need this kind of reflective problem-solving leadership.
