A man is only as good as his words.

A man is only as good as his words. A few words out of the venerable Drew Bedwell’s mouth.

1. If you’re not a “property rights” person in Nevada County, you’re a “greenie,” “pinko,” or “treehugger.”

2. Bedwell compares Nevada County community service programs to Hitler Youth Corps.

3. Drew says there is a U.N. Conspiracy trying to take over the minds of Nevada County schoolchildren.

4. Bedwell compared NH 2020 supporters to Sept. 11 terrorists.

Do you want this man for one of your supervisors?

Can anyone figure out why the Sheriff’s Association is backing this man?
