A great loss, this. Supervisor Valle was a kind and gentle being, as was his recently-deceased colleague, Supervisor Wilma Chan. Both were also great advocates for the welfare of animals, leading the recent successful battles to outlaw the rodeo's cruel "mutton busting" event (2019) and the "wild cow milking contest" (2022).
Sincere condolences to the Valle family and friends, and the members of the Board of Supervisors, R.I.P.
