Angie Lux: Hall has my vote

Why will I vote to elect Heidi Hall to the board of supervisors? Because I believe we need more balanced leadership!

Our current board of supervisors, which seems a bit strident to me, is made up of “old white men” making all the decision for the county that is, in fact, over 50 percent women. Women are under represented. In most of our family homes there is balance with two decision makers, one male and one female.

Business researchers have published studies that show correlation between having more women decision makers in a corporation and better financial returns. It also has been pointed out by the Women’s Leadership Initiative that women in political leadership bring a different temperament to public policy discussions, with more listening, more collaboration, and less “gotcha” competition.

I want that kind of temperament on the board of supervisors. Heidi Hall is very intelligent, caring, conscientious, and hard working resident of Nevada County that will represent us well. Heidi Hall has my vote.
