Robert Nye, Jr.
For the past 35 years I have worked in northern California as a senior advertising and marketing executive; representing commercial clients as well as numerous local, national, and international non-profit organizations. I am presently a practicing Fine Artist, specializing in the registered discipline of Extractionist Painting:
“The thing I really like about Bill is his long history of representing the individual and collective rights of people; both locally, nationally, and internationally. Something I truly know is this: Bill has incredible integrity. He is a guy who had tremendous Character in High School, and who has just naturally carried this trait all through his long history of public service. And the guy's exceptionally bright as well!
I really believe that Bill Monning is the type of consensus builder and pragmatic thinker that our State Senate - and California - sorely needs to move ahead and get "We The People" back on track; fiscally, responsibly, and truly... with no time to lose!
No matter what side of politics you fall on, get to know Bill Monning. Anywhere he travels, he "bridges-the-gap" and builds upon integrity.
This is my take on Bill!”
