I am a local Davis resident, a researcher and teacher, and a regenerative design practitioner. I am running for Yolo County Supervisor on the platform of a community-driven Local Green New Deal to address the climate crisis and most pressing community issues.

You can read more about my vision for a Local Green New Deal and learn more about me on my website: davidabramsonforyolo.com.

All the best,
David
