Sutherland won’t take a stand on Measure D

On two occasions recently, Robin Sutherland was asked to state her position on Measure D.

Both of those times she clearly dodged the question, stating that she “wouldn’t know until she entered the voting booth” and that she needed to “go back and read the actual language.”

District 4, vote Izzy or Rene!
