Un-Professional poll conducted

I find The Union’s Reader’s Choice awards ballot confusing and unclear.

Under the heading of Professional, I don’t know whether I’m voting for the best individual house painter or the house painting contractor. Maybe the best house painter works for the best house painting contractor?

The same could apply to the best roofer or best landscaper.

What is “best” water? NID or Calistoga?

What is “best” contractor? There are 31 kinds of contractors in the Pac Bell directory.

Why didn’t you include barbers, pharmacists, pet groomers or window cleaners, of which there are 28 listed in the Gold Country directory?

And last but not least, what the hell is a gutter guy?

In summary, I think the professionals at The Union did an un-Professional job.
