Mike Levy
Candidate for City Council
(530) 759-1156
1107 Kennedy Place, Suite 5
Davis, CA 95616

Mike Levy ran for City Council in the Spring Election of 2006. He lost. (See the [WWW]Davis Enterprise article, or the [WWW]Cal Aggie article.) He was the chairman of the Governance Task Force that recommended choice voting to the council.

Mike was a UC Davis student from 1984-1988, and played cymbals and sousaphone for the Cal Aggie Band-uh!. Mike has stayed involved with the University and is currently on the Board of Directors for the Cal Aggie Alumni Association, where he chairs the Development Committee. As part of his chair duties, he is leading a campaign to raise $5 million for the Alumni Scholarship Fund. As an alumnus of the Band-Uh!, Mike continued his service as President of the Cal Aggie Marching Band Association from 1993-1995. After his term as president, he continued to give back by creating an Endowment Fund for the Band-Uh! in 2000 and raising $550,000 for the fund.

He is a Senior Staff Attorney with the California State Water Resources Control Board, a volunteer mediator with the First District Court of Appeal, and a Davis resident. Mike's eldest daughter, Sarah, is 2 1/2 years old. His second daughter, Rachel, was just born in March. Compared with keeping the boys away from Sarah, Mike thinks that running for City Council is a breeze.

Mike also has both a facebook profile and group ("Mike Levy for City Council in 2006!") that he is pretty excited about.

2006-03-29 18:02:10   Mike would be a voice for *carefully* planned growth on the Council, and someone who will listen to his constituents and reach out to the student community. I want to see him on the Council. —PaulZinn

2006-03-30 11:30:01   Where does Mike stand on police oversight? —CaroleDavis

2006-03-30 15:37:58   I talked with Mike last night, especially regarding ACTUAL affordable housing in Davis and smart, green minded planning. Although I still have more research to do, I really felt he would be a good person the Council. I encourage people to seek him out and chat. —JanelleAlvstadMattson

2006-04-02 15:33:08   For those who care, the Yolo County Republicans are backing Mike Levy. —JamesSchwab

A full list of those who endorse Mike is available at his website: [WWW]http://www.mikelevy2006.com. —BeccaMiller

2006-04-03 07:49:37   Mark Champagne sent out an email to all ASUCD officials telling them they cannot use their titles when endorsing candidates. If you look at Levy's site, Darnell Holloway has his title being used on the endorsement list. Hope he knows because that is a lawsuit waiting to happen, as Mark warned.

2006-05-10 12:11:48   Mike has been endorsed by the Davis Police Officers Association. —JamesSchwab

2006-05-23 16:56:44   Last Wednesday I had a chance to talk to Mike Levy for about an hour. We don't agree on everything, but I think he's definitely a professional and respectful candidate who puts a lot of thought into his ideas. I'm always apprhensive of candidates that can declare that they are pro or con something but can't talk in length about why they formed such an opinion. Not so with Mr. Levy, he and Lamar both seem like great candidates so far. —AlvinTsao
