Senior Sleuth: Reflecting on positive changes

Bob Black is a very busy local attorney, but he found time to talk to me last week about the positive things he sees happening in Del Norte County. If you were to pick one man who stands out as the most prominent leader in town, I would say it’s Bob Black. 

Bob was the youngest mayor that Davis ever had. Later he was brought into a law firm as a partner right out of law school. Following that, he served two terms on the Board of Supervisors in Yolo County. He next served as county counsel for the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors for a number of years. Afterward he formed a very busy private practice on H Street, but he also works for the city on certain things and for the harbor. 

Bob said he wasn’t especially interested in talking about the legal aspect of things, but more about the dramatic transformations we see going on in Crescent City and Del Norte County right now:
