Tom Ferrer: Hang in there, Reinette

Reinette Senum did nothing wrong. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. It doesn’t matter what position you hold, ditch digger or president.

Reinette hasn’t brought shame on Nevada City. She has voiced what many people think. Innocent people are being killed. If one person supports her in writing, then there are 10 more who do so but do not speak up. Ditto for any petition supporting her.

People who voted for Reinette do not want her to resign. A conservative minority are the only ones who want her out. I do not think we should waste Nevada City’s time and resources with impeachment or recall. There are more important issues that need attention.

Nevada City is great. There is nothing to recover from. Just check out the crowds at the beautiful Wednesday night street fairs and the Saturday farmer’s market. A small element of the population is trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. That element is trying to use this incident as a means to get rid of Reinette.

Reinette, do not resign.
