ELECTION 2007: Dunbar wants Farrace as replacement

I endorse Robert Farrace for Chair 1 on the Modesto City Council. I have known Robert for more than 10 years. He is bright, articulate and steady. As an attorney, he will fill a professional gap that is not represented by any other council member. Most of his legal practice is with real estate and contract law. The city approves hundreds of contracts each year. Robert's expertise will add needed legal oversight to those contracts.

Robert has been active in the community through the Chamber of Commerce and Modesto East Rotary Club and Modesto Teen Baseball. Although a newcomer to Modesto politics, his qualifications far outweigh those of any other candidate for Chair 1. I believe he will continue the work the current council has begun to improve the city's infrastructure. He has also expressed genuine concern about improving the city's forestry efforts. Public safety, Modesto streets and roads, along with fiscal integrity, are all parts of his platform.


City Council member, Chair 1
