Clarifying viewpoint

I would like to correct a misrepresentation of my viewpoint on the front page of the Sept. 10 Union newspaper. In no way am I questioning the integrity of the Nevada County Consolidated Fire Department. I have the greatest respect for the professional conduct of our county’s fire departments and appreciate their services. I simply feel the form of voting is not consistent with our heritage of secret ballots. I am very uncomfortable with this voting method. If we accept voting without privacy, we open our political system to greater abuse.
