Centenarian for Diaz

I have lived in Nevada County for over 50 years. I am happy to say that at 100 years old, I am still able to live in my own home. When my husband and I first moved here, we never had to lock our doors or worry about crime. With our county’s elder population at double the state’s average, we stand to be more vulnerable to abuse and crime. On Jan. 16, Olivia Diaz provided our citizens with an educational forum on issues concerning seniors and the disabled. She has reached out to me. I’m reaching out to her with my vote on March 2.
