Olivia Diaz deserves our support in District 1 for a seat on the Nevada County Board of Supervisors. Her platform is “protecting neighborhoods; always has ” always will.”

I have observed Olivia in action. She served as a board member and officer in our neighborhood association. She has served as secretary, treasurer, membership chair, Fire Safety Committee chair, and president of FONA (Federation of Neighborhood Associations). She also helps in preparing our neighborhood association newsletter. Olivia can and has reached across local, state and federal party lines to get results for our neighborhood.

On Oct. 1, the Nevada County Arts Council hosted a reception announcing the opening of Art Matters, a bookstore and gallery at their headquarters on South Auburn Street in Grass Valley. Olivia was there. She was very much at ease among friends, perusing the books and really looking at the art. Oh, and did you know that she belongs to a local writers group?

Olivia knows and appreciates art. If you are an artist (of any discipline), art lover or patron, Olivia Diaz is the one you want in there. If you are not registered to vote, Olivia is your reason. Do it now!
