The long and winding road taken by advocate Yossi Havilio has brought him from the position of municipal legal adviser into conflicting situations with then-mayor Uri Lupolianski, and through a period of shared support between him and Mayor Nir Barkat – which didn’t last too long.

Today, Havilio, a very active lawyer with a private practice in the city, has become the leading opponent to Barkat and unofficially a candidate for mayor in the next election. He created a non-profit called Tzahor (“flawless white”), which represents on a pro bono basis residents and local associations in cases against municipal policies they perceive as unfair or contradicting their interests.
