Curtis Byrd for Santa Rosa City Council

Many of us were Cardinal Newman classmates and are lifelong friends of Curtis Byrd. We know and trust Curtis’ judgment, work ethic and commitment to Santa Rosa.

CURTIS BYRD – A Fresh Vision of Leaderhip

vote w checkmark

 Curtis Byrd

for

Santa Rosa City Council

We need less conflict, and greater cooperation on the Santa Rosa City Council. Our community needs a peacemaker, and problem solver.

The life-long lessons learned from Little League, Cub and Boy scouts, my high school and college education, competing on a National Track and Field team, business experience with small and large companies and serving on the Santa Rosa Planning Commission apply to my qualifications for serving on the Santa Rosa City Council.

As a native Santa Rosan those intentions encompass preparation, practice, and performance.

Preparation means study the rules and understand the culture of the community in its historical and institutional framework.

Practice means individually, and as a team member, through continued development of my skills, with belief in the highest values and intent to serve.

Performance means to perform to the best and highest within me and to make a meaningful difference for the team (community).

Along the way, the most important lessons were learned within family, particularly Grandpa Gilbert Gray who took us to Sunday school and taught us about giving, sharing, service, and excellence.

Join with neighborhood leaders, clergy, seniors, Santa Rosa teachers, Sonoma County Democratic Party, friends, family and numerous elected officials, in supporting an experienced leader with A Fresh Vision of Leadership!

Together we can Make a Difference!
