Letter: Join us in supporting Cottrell | Opinion

The next few years will be critical to the health of our Napa Valley. Water, fire, agriculture, land use and housing issues need to be addressed. We need a supervisor who is balanced, independent, experienced and knowledgeable in California and local law. That person is Anne Cottrell.

Anne was born and raised in Upper Napa Valley. As a child, she rode the Ferris wheel at the Calistoga Fair and cheered on the Fourth of July parade. She was an honor student in the schools of Saint Helena. Plus, she knows this county like only a runner can. She has traveled our parks and miles of natural landscapes in Angwin and Calistoga.

With the complexity of laws governing water, land use and housing, we need a supervisor who is knowledgeable in law and has local experience in these matters. Anne holds an undergraduate degree from Yale and a law degree from UC Berkeley. She served seven and a half years on the Napa County Planning Commission and is a member of the Watershed Information and Conservation Council. She co-chaired the St. Helena committee responsible for updating the general plan and served on the board of the Napa County Land Trust.
