A recent letter

A recent letter alleges that Lorraine spends her work time interviewing people for Channel 11. In early 1999 then-CAO David Brennan asked Lorraine to interview county employees on a show called “Nevada County Government Update.” Lorraine was a natural choice because of her experience in broadcast journalism.

The program continues today because of her willingness to assume that assigned responsibility three years ago. These days, we still talk about going beyond traditional job duties in order to benefit the taxpayers.

I have produced this show for three years as a no-cost service to the county.
