Support Diaz

Patricia Montijo

As a longtime resident of Nevada City, I have watched the leaders in our community struggle with the balance between growth and maintenance of our rural lifestyle. I believe most residents live here because they want to live in a small town environment as I do.

In the upcoming election, I support Olivia Diaz because she has clearly stated that she wants to see our quality of life protected from development such as the Deer Creek Park II Project. She stands for preservation of the Wild and Scenic status of our precious Yuba River.

From the time I left the Bay Area in the late ’70s to now, our community has changed drastically. We now deal with traffic jams on the local roads that rival those in larger cities. We see more and more large corporations pushing our small business people out. There are housing developments that look like they belong in Los Angeles, not the Sierra foothills.

Yes, the times they are a changin’. But let’s put the brakes on, let’s think carefully about each new proposed development and let’s protect our way of life by voting for Olivia Diaz for supervisor.
