Urges vote for Diaz

As a 24-year resident of Nevada County, I support Olivia Diaz for District 1 supervisor. Her opponent had a career in the military, but this requires an entirely different set of skills from the administrative capabilities needed for public office. Diaz has invaluable experience serving in a local neighborhood, as homeowner and with fire safety organizations. As a longtime home owner, I value the need for reasonable growth, but also want to preserve the rural quality of life the drew me here. Olivia Diaz shares these values, and I urge readers to vote for her in the upcoming election.
