Political resolutions

Recently, the Nevada City council voted against the passage of political resolutions reflecting the ideologies of a small group of our citizens. Whether, individually, any one of us shares these views or not is irrelevant.

Our vibrant, politically well-informed community consists of people with varying and contrasting points of view. The correctness of any one position over others, I feel, is not for the City Council or Board of Supervisors to judge and certainly not officially endorse. Healthy, lively and even passionate political discourses are some of the many reasons why this town is special to all of us.

I feel that open-mindedness and tolerance for all are hallmarks we continue to strive for in our community and that includes our elected officials. In the meantime, I suggest the community allow the City Council to use the majority of its time to deal with the issues of problem resolution. These are the duties I feel they were elected by the citizens to perform in a nonpartisan and neutral capacity.
