People have spoken; now for phase two

The people have spoken.

Not only across this great nation, but also in our great county, the people have voted for a return to common sense.



As the dust settles, the signs come down and the newly elected supervisors are sworn in, it is time to address phase two.

I am referring to the many regulations forced on the people during the last four years in the name of social engineering. Rest assured, there are plenty of concerned citizens who would volunteer their time to serve on a review committee.

Thanks to Bruce, Izzy for service to county

I wish to express appreciation to Bruce Conklin and “Izzy” Martin for their outstanding service to the people of Nevada County. They have been two of the finest supervisors I have known. I admire them for their intelligent, thoughtful, fair and ethical dedication to the public good. They have been informed and even-handed in the discharge of their supervisorial responsibilities. They have not resorted to Machiavellian tactics, creating transparently deceiving “issues” for political gain.

Bruce and “Izzy” have appreciated the excellent county administrative staff. I have never seen them publicly and falsely accuse them of malfeasance.

Their conduct, in and out of office, has been exemplary. I wish that all public officials could possess their qualities of dignity and integrity. Thank you, Bruce and “Izzy,” for your stewardship and leadership.

New supervisors may solve housing problem

Now that the dust has settled from the heated debates in the recent election campaigning, it is encouraging to see that the majority of voters have shown their compassion and caring about allowing low-income families to have access to affordable housing.

Affordable housing has always been possible if it weren’t for the county restrictions imposed by the supervisors as a reflection of the selfish attitude of their supporters.

There has been a need for a long time. And there has always been available the necessary land, financing and capable builders.

Now, hopefully with a new, more caring county government, those who need and those who can supply will be allowed to quickly solve this situation without further government interference.

Housing is a basic need for all humans. To deny its availability to low-income families is not just stupid, it is cruel.
