Local democrats reconsider endorsement of Dai Meagher

The Nevada County Democratic Central Committee (NCDCC) is reconsidering their endorsement of Dai Meagher for Treasurer/Tax Collector since they realized that Meagher signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge of ultra-right winger Grover Nordquist.

Their meeting to reconsider their endorsement is Oct. 21, six days after The Union’s deadline for election letters. Therefore, I must write now without knowing their ultimate decision. I personally pleaded with them to do the right thing and rescind their endorsement.

I want all progressive Nevada County voters to realize that the NCDCC is not solidly supporting Meagher, and in fact many active local democrats can be found on Tina Vernon’s list of endorsers.

Personally, I am offended by the many shamrocks on Meagher signs. I’m Irish. too. and therefore I should vote for him? No way!
