Oakley City Council Candidate Dave Hansen has launched his campaign website which should give voters some much needed information about who he is and what he stands for.
Having sat down with him, I can say he is a great person and I truly enjoyed our conversation as he is a principled individual. He really appears to be doing this for the right reasons which is to improve Oakley which I like. His platform is solid as his top three priorities if elected would be business, police, and infrastructure.
- Dave has served as a Volunteer Police Chaplain for the past 10 years with the Contra Costa Sherriff’s Office. He was named Chaplain of the Year for Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office in 2006
- Recognize Dave’s voice? You may have heard him announcing the football games for Freedom High School Freshman and JV. He also runs the scoreboard during the Varsity game.
- Dave has also been a referee for several of the local sports at the Middle School level
- Served as a Youth and Senior Pastor for over 25 years
While I may not agree 100% with him, he is clearly the best candidate by far after Kevin Romick and Diane Burgis which is good enough to earn a seat at the table which is all that matters at the end of the day. I thought going into this Doug Hardcastle would be the clear favorite for a seat, but after my research on Ironhouse Sanitary District, anyone who raises rates every year since 1999/2000 gets no political support from me even if he is a nice guy.
