Paul Boylan, March 2016

Paul Boylan, a Davis attorney, was going to run for Davis City Council this June, then needed to withdraw from the race. This created a chance for me to talk with someone who had done the homework to run for office, and has shown a preference for plain talk in his comments on the Davis Vanguard, but now wouldn’t need to couch his opinions in the usually careful language of a political campaign. We talk about political donations, transparency, putting sin taxes on the ballot, increasing the visibility of police officers on weekend nights downtown, and what he means when he says Davis’ problems derive from its success.
