I’m supporting Izzy Martin

I’m supporting Izzy Martin for supervisor because she puts protecting our quality of life ahead of developers’ profits.

That’s a big difference from the old days, when developers and pro-growth special interests dominated the Board of Supervisors. We see the results of developers controlling growth in places like Auburn and Roseville: strip malls, sprawl and tacky subdivisions.

Supervisor Martin has sent a strong message to developers: sprawl stops at the Nevada County line. So I’m sending Izzy a strong message: I support you Supervisor Martin, and thanks for protecting our quality of life. You get my vote.
