Stevens sensible

I’ve been assiduously reading The Union roundtable interviews with candidates for Board of Supervisors, also the many letters that have been printed in this paper.

I found the interview with Linda Stevens to be the most easily understood, down to earth and sensible of all the candidates. It’s refreshing, and encouraging, to find a person who does not wish to be associated with partisan politics, but who wants to work for the good of the people of Nevada County, and who happens to be familiar with the workings and problems at the city level as well.

When we moved to this county 18 years ago, one didn’t have to be endorsed by a political party to run for these offices. It is my understanding that city and county officers were never meant to be elected on party lines. Seems to me that it would be better for the citizens to be served by persons who worked for them not for the Democrats or the Republicans. Goodness knows, the issues facing us are neither Democratic nor Republican (though they might have caused some of the problems we face).
