April 8, 2018 - I am honored to join other residents of District 3, Mariposa County, who are planning to vote for Heather Bernikoff for Supervisor.
There are many reasons to vote for Bernikoff, including her superb leadership and unwavering commitment to community. She has made many substantive contributions to Mariposa County over the years, especially when it comes to land use, fire safety, health, and education. As a leader, Bernikoff is high energy, trustworthy, attentive, hard working, and fair. A team player, she works well with individuals from all backgrounds.
Effective communication is another reason to support Bernikoff. She has outstanding communication skills. As Founding Faculty and Professor of Cognitive Science at UC Merced, I publish articles and teach courses on communication and the impact it can have. I believe our county would benefit from a supervisor who is a clear, open communicator, someone who is able to speak to and on behalf of ALL District 3 residents, female and male, young and old, fortunate and less fortunate.
Yet another reason to support Bernikoff is that she has a deep respect for small town traditions and an interest in reasonable opportunities for change. This balance will be invaluable.
Heather Bernikoff has my vote. She will do outstanding work as Supervisor, District 3.
