About the candidates in the March 5 elections …
When Article 25 was discussed, Rene (Antonson) promised to support it. But when Rene found “special interests” lurking in the shadows, he voted against it. That is a fine example of why we want this man who doesn’t play favorites as our supervisor for the 4th District. He’s done his homework, he knows more than you think he knows, and that’s why the left-of-center moderates, greens and liberals are growling. As for signs: They all have been vandalized. It’s a fun thing to do when you are a frisky youth in an “old farts” town.

I have worked with the Nevada County Recorder1s Office for the past 19 years, and with Lorraine Jewett-Burdick for the last three years. When Lorraine took office, the recorder1s office was neglected and dysfunctional. Through hard work and tenaciousness, Lorraine turned the Recorder1s Office into the most productive, efficient department in the county.
Much of the history of Nevada County lies in the Recorder1s Office (mining claims; birth, marriage, and death certificates, property transfers, etc.). By voting Lorraine Jewett-Burdick as your clerk-recorder, present and future generations will have reliable access to Nevada County records for years to come.
Citizens are fortunate when their government offices are ably run. Nevada County is fortunate in having Lorraine Jewett-Burdick as clerk recorder. Since being elected, elections and records offices have functioned at a higher level of efficiency than previously known. She instituted changes that have saved taxpayers $15,000 per election.
I have witnessed the learning curve involved when elected officials come to a new position. That time lag is costly in efficiency and function. Nevada County is fortunate in that they can continue to enjoy the benefits of Lorraine Jewett-Burdick1s well run offices by retaining her as clerk recorder.

I urge 3rd District voters to reelect Bruce Conklin. Bruce understands the complex issues unique to Nevada County1s most densely populated district. Sensible and resourceful, Bruce will work to protect the environment while bringing new jobs to the community. He knows property rights are more than just profit rights, and that growth must be balanced against increased pollution, gridlock and crime. We need to keep proven leaders on the job like Bruce Conklin, who makes decisions based on the needs of all citizens, not just a few big contributors. Reelect Bruce Conklin, Supervisor.
I had the pleasure of serving on the Nevada City Planning Commission with Denis Kutch, currently a candidate for the Nevada City Council. Through his leadership as chair, a sense of professionalism and fairness was returned to the commission that had long been missing.
Unfortunately, under the current commission chair, Conley Weaver, also a candidate for the council, rudeness and arrogance have once again returned to the city1s planning process. If you have attended a commission meeting this past year, you know what I mean. Please vote for a proven leader and a true professional, Denis Kutch, for Nevada City Council.
