Making a difference

I know as a Democrat that when 12 Democrats are in the same room there may well be 12 different priorities, 12 different opinions and 12 different solutions to any given topic or problem.

The election this November will offer Democrats their best opportunity in decades to come together as a unit, and combined with the vast number of moderate and progressive independents who are also fed up with the obstruction caused by Republicans, we can move our county, state and country forward. This can and will happen when we vote.

There are roughly 7,553,109 Democrats and 3,423,750 Independents in California. There are roughly 20,787 Democrats and 11,967 independent voters in Nevada County. Historically, when we all of vote, positive change takes place, and we advance as a community.

I urge Nevada County voters to support the Democratic Party candidates and positions on the propositions. Together, 11 million people in California and 32,000 of us in Nevada County will make a difference.
