I hope all Penn Valleyites reading this

I hope all Penn Valleyites reading this will join me in voting to keep Izzy Martin in office.

I have been so impressed by her organizational abilities, common sense and community service, for example, with the Penn Valley Community Association she helped launch. She has plenty of the experience we need, from her years guiding statewide agricultural organizations and her five years as planning commissioner.

She knows the capitol halls in Sacramento and has been an effective lobbyist for our local needs (e.g., the $400,000 she secured for county mental health).

She has saved us $20 million by restructuring the county’s long-term debt and improving the county’s credit rating. I don’t see anything approaching this in her opponents.
