Smith’s record is good

I feel I must respond to your editorial column of May 20 regarding the county clerk-recorder race.

You stated that Kathleen “Smith’s three-year performance has been marked by controversy and failure.”

Yet the record shows that she has managed four successful elections in her three-year tenure and is well on the way to a fifth one.

Your litany of glitches seems petty and minor to me. As you also stated, “the proof is in the pudding” and the pudding is working well. Nevada County elections run under Smith’s watch have been successful, due in large measure to Smith’s and her staff’s competence and hard work.

Perhaps your time would be better spent reporting the news, rather than in a heavy-handed attempt to create controversy where none exists.
