In support of Tina Vernon

I am writing as one of a number of Democrats, and also a 25-year resident of Nevada County, who is supporting Tina Vernon in the non-partisan race for Nevada County Treasurer/Tax Collector.

Tina worked under and was trained by former Treasurer-Tax Collector Chris Dabis, who for so many years did a great job of investing and protecting county funds and seeing that taxes were handled in a fair and timely manner.

Her opponent, Dai Meagher, was able to obtain an endorsement from the Nevada County Democratic Central Committee, an endorsement which I, as a member of that Committee, did not support and consider an error, done without adequate research and investigation of some, in this Democrat’s opinion, extremist hard Right connections of that candidate. I am supporting, and plan to vote for, Tina, whom I consider a political moderate, and believe to be the best qualified for the office by training, experience and character, and as the TV ad for Jerry Brown says, character matters, and I urge other Democrats to do the same.
