Stopping polarization

In the election letters section on Sept. 23, a writer comments on that Olivia Diaz believes the Board of Supervisors is supposed to be a nonpartisan forum. Then why did Olivia march in the Fourth of July parade with the Democrats, speak at the Democrat barbecue and had her literature available at the Democrat booth at the fair? She wasn’t visible at the Republican gatherings.

She says Barbara Boxer is her “role model and inspiration.” The latter was a quote by Olivia in The Union after Barbara Boxer visited our area. What about the huge monthly sewer service charge in Cascade Shores, of which Olivia is on their board? I don’t know what political affiliation Nate Beason is, as to date he’s nonpartisan, as it should be.
