Planner the best choice

I was out of town between Christmas and New Year. I was in San Jose, the town I moved from to Grass Valley in 1989.

I am always so happy to return to this wonderful community. It is a shame what has happened to the entire Bay Area – the traffic, the crowding and the lack of planning.

Well, it was like getting the best Christmas present when I caught up on the local news and read in The Union that Sharon Boivin had been appointed to the Nevada County Planning Commission.

I have known Sharon for many years, and I am always amazed at her knowledge and intelligence. She has in the past and will continue in the future to serve the citizens of Nevada County with forward-looking, well-thought-out planning.

Thanks to Bruce Conklin for finding and appointing the very best person for the job of planning commissioner for District 3.

And thank you, Sharon, for serving the residents of Nevada County.
