As I am winding down this series (last show airs April 27), I wanted to circle back with someone at the county level, and I chose Don Saylor, whom I last interviewed in June 2020.
Supervisor Saylor represents District 2, including the cities of Davis and Winters, the campus of the University of California at Davis, and the farm land of southwestern Yolo County. His public service career spans over 45 years and includes 25 years elected in office, administrative, planning and analytical positions in local government and both the legislative and executive branches of California state government.
We’ve spoken a couple of times over the course of the pandemic, but it had been a while, and much has happened. Join us for conversation spanning his key takewaways from the pandemic; how the American Rescue Act funds wil be used; and how the county is grappling with a mandated overhaul of the juvenile justice system, envisoning new approaches and new purpose for the Juvenile Justice Facility.
