Tassone takes a stand

A recent meeting of the Grass Valley City Council about Measure D included factions of our community that are fighting each other.

I was impressed with the leadership skills Gerard Tassone displayed at that meeting. He was not afraid to take a stand on this controversial ballot measure, and he showed genuine respect for those who disagreed with his position.
