Let freedom ring

As a 46-year resident of Nevada County, there are few things that my family and I take more seriously than voting for our county supervisors. In order for me to make an educated decision, I have researched and reviewed the delegates for supervisor of District IV. In this process, I have come to the conclusion that I will be supporting Robin Sutherland as supervisor of District IV. I decided to choose Robin after having spent the past several months closely observing and interacting with her.

I became interested in Robin when I learned she was a local grass-roots candidate, not tied to outside interest groups. There was so much misinformation about candidates that I decided to call Robin and ask her to come and talk to a group of citizens about important community issues.

I found Robin to be extremely candid and honest in her responses to all of our questions and concerns. She also told us of her job experiences in dealing with county, state and federal land issues. Her background in this area will be especially valuable regarding vital issues facing our community.

Overall, I have had the opportunity to watch a positive, highly organized, thorough, hard-working candidate in a variety of different circumstances consistently react in an honest, forthcoming manner to all issues presented to her. Robin is not controlled by outside interest groups who are trying to decide the destiny of our community without us, as opposed to incumbents.

Last spring in the primary election, Robin received the largest number of votes among all the new candidates for supervisor of District IV. This indicates to me that Robin Sutherland is the people’s choice for supervisor in District IV in the November 2002 election.

So, I will be voting for Robin Sutherland to represent me as supervisor for District IV. I would also encourage people to vote for Drew Bedwell in District III. “Let Freedom Ring” by voting on Tuesday, Nov. 5. Together we will do our best to protect, strengthen, and care for Nevada County.
