Attacks on Horne disgusting

I read with disgust the attacks on the Board of Supervisors Chairman Sue Horne’s action on adjusting the size of the Sewage Disposal Technical Advisory Group.

The agenda of any BOS meeting is set by the chairman of the board and can be revised in an opening meeting by a majority of the board members. To adjust the agenda when one board member says, “By the way, I have a letter from someone who would like. . .” is ludicrous. Chairman Horne’s action shows her understanding and knowledge of proper procedures – something that often was not evident in the past with the majority of our four in power.

In one of the last letters published in The Union ,the writer made the following statement, “Civic concerns should override private gain.” What playbook did this come from – the old “no growth” group?

Nevada County should get used to being governed by a board of elected officials who will do what is best for all the people all the time.
