Beason charge untrue

Unfortunately, Mr. Beason has gotten it wrong again. At a recent debate he accused Olivia Diaz of taking contributions from developers, inaccurately singling out a local couple as developers. This misinformation prompted a recent letter to the editor.

Nate Beason incorrectly stated, “…she fails to mention that she got $999 from a consultant for Carville Sierra Inc. Carville Sierra Inc. is the developer of Loma Rica Ranch. She also got $995 from this person’s wife.”

I have studied Olivia’s contributions. One phone call to these retired county residents of 57 years confirmed they have never served as consultants to the Loma Rica Ranch project nor have they worked on any other land development projects in Nevada County.

Meanwhile, Mr. Beason contends he has not taken money from developers, yet his filings indicate a generous contribution from the Nevada County Contractors Association. This organization definitely supports local build-out and are vocal advocates for relaxing development management rules.

Mr. Beason’s literature on honest campaigning needs polishing. Perhaps the first step would be to put out accurate information to our residents.
