Glenn McGourty is an educator, scientist, and farmer dedicated to a prosperous and sustainable Mendocino County. As teachers, parents, and community members, we’ve known Glenn for a combined 20-plus years, and trust that his proven character, consistent leadership, and remarkable ingenuity are right for the 1st District and right for Mendocino County.
Glenn has the intellect and education (Masters of Science) to quickly understand complex problems and offer working solutions. In his previous service as a member of Ukiah Unified School District’s Board of Trustees during the Great Recession, Glenn proved his facility with the tough decisions needed to guide a large organization through a difficult time, but do so with tremendous care for all of the people his decisions effected.
Professionally, Glenn served as the UC Cooperative Extension Winegrowing and Plant Science Advisor for Mendocino County since 1987, providing education and research to support farmers, winemakers, horticulturalists, and gardeners throughout the county, he is by far the candidate with the deepest understanding of how to sustainably manage our Natural Resources.
For these reasons and more, we urge you to vote for Glenn McGourty on (or before!) November 3rd
