Fifth District Supervisor Jill Duffy today announced her support for Ryan Sundberg in the race to succeed her in office. Duffy, who is not seeking re-election, told the Journal that based on her conversations with Sundberg, she believes he has the temperament and listening skills required for the job.
"An important element is being a critical listener, being open to various viewpoints," Duffy said. "It requires a lot of work, and in my conversations with Ryan I observed that he's very thoughtful and diligent, and I know he is talking with a lot of people in the Fifth District."
She added that as a lifelong local, Sundberg appreciates the distinct personalities of each community in the district.
