I remember the bad old days

I remember the bad old days when a few large landowners and developers controlled growth in Nevada County. Their rubber-stamp Board of Supervisors approved projects like the Pine Creek Center and Brunswick Basin. Izzy Martin has been fighting this kind of bad development, and that’s why she’s getting my vote on Nov. 5.

Nevada County will grow another 40,000 residents in the next 20 years. I don’t want to go back to the old days of a few wealthy special interests controlling growth. Keep the community in control of future growth – keep Izzy Martin as our supervisor.
