Protect the Yuba

I’m really looking forward to being able to cast my ballot for Olivia Diaz. It feels really important to have someone of her capabilities on the Board of Supervisors. We need someone whose focus has been on working together in neighborhoods in our community. She knows how to facilitate sharing of viewpoints, finding commonalities, and creating solutions that work for people. I am also supporting her because the Yuba River is very precious to me.
