Diaz to represent all

I support Olivia Diaz for District 1 supervisor because she is the only candidate who will both protect the environment from unrestricted growth and represent the interests of small businesses in Nevada County. Her opponent talks about moderation, but his published statements as a The Union columnist show clearly that he is a property rights zealot who lacks perspective of the larger picture regarding growth, zoning and property rights issues.

Recent letters attacking Ms. Diaz also show that his supporters have abandoned the notion of a clean election, and are seeking to discredit her by false statements. In my experience, there has never been any policy about signs being posted before Labor Day. Nor is it true that Ms. Diaz has ever shown anything but the utmost respect and support of our fine law enforcement agencies.

Let’s get this campaign back on track, and elect a supervisor who will represent all of Nevada County, and not just a few special interests.  Olivia Diaz is that person.
