Outside interests?

Wake up Nevada County! Has anyone really looked into who is behind the anti-NH 2020 campaign? Are your property rights really at jeopardy or is the brainwashing by big business, large landowners and logging companies causing this fear among the small landowners? Who are the ones funding the campaign against this ecologically sound measure and supporting the candidates for supervisor that are against it? California is to be treasured and protected. It is one of the most ecologically diverse areas in the world and without sound measures to protect it there will be nothing left for anyone, even the big business that fights so ardently against it. Remember what you do on your own property affects your neighbors, and ultimately, us all. We, as small landowners, need to stand up to those “good ol’ boys” that still believe “what’s mine is mine, what’s yours is mine.” We must see beyond the propaganda they so viscously spew and do what is right for our future.
