Nothing to gain |

Nothing to gain

In the Oct. 19 edition of The Union, my wife Mollie and I were included as dual campaign contributors for Olivia Diaz and Bruce Conklin. We see our total $300 contribution as a necessary expenditure to influence the political process in the community we love.

Olivia and Bruce support political values we believe in and so we exercise our right and obligation as patriotic Americans for responsive government. We have nothing to gain financially from their election. On the other hand, the local developers who intend to double the size of Grass Valley are promoting their self-interest by their substantial political contributions.
