I strongly urge you re-elect Izzy

I strongly urge you re-elect Izzy Martin.

Many of her attributes are well-known. Less well known is that she and Mike have owned a 33-acre organic farm since 1986. They set up a weekly booth at the growers market at the fairgrounds – one of Nevada County’s pleasantest events. Izzy is usually able to talk to constituents like me while Mike weighs the tomatoes.

She is a modest treasure. Let’s vote her back.
