Refreshing change

The District 1 contest among Olivia Diaz, Nate Beason, and Josh Ramey is such a refreshing change from recent county elections. None of the candidates is at all like Drew Bedwell, an extremist, one-issue candidate who drew attention away from the real issues we face. But even though all the candidates are reasonable and sincere, it does make a difference who voters choose. I’m supporting Olivia Diaz because she has the best record of community involvement, and has proven her skill at building consensus and understanding the views of different segments of the community.
