Winning trio

I am writing to support three candidates in the upcoming election: John Kerry, Olivia Diaz and Bruce Conklin.

John Kerry has proven himself to be a courageous leader in battle and the U.S. Senate. He has years of experience in government and the courage to subject his views to rational discussion and revise them according to reputable scientific knowledge. Our environment, civil liberties and respect worldwide will be greatly enhanced upon his election. The Iraq war has created more terrorists than it has vanquished.

Olivia Diaz has demonstrated amazing toughness of character by prevailing to date in a personally demanding campaign. She understands that the power of government arises from the families and homes coalesced into neighborhoods. Not some superimposed command and control structure.

A man of great integrity, Bruce Conklin’s understanding of and experience with the issues of growth, traffic and pollution confronting our county is beyond reproach. His accomplishments in preserving our precious heritage have so frightened the PACs, developers and their allies that they have attempted to smear his reputation and denigrate those accomplishments. I for one will enjoy casting my vote against those outside interests and PACs who dream of replicating Roseville in Nevada County.
