Looking for solutions in District 1

Russ Steele

Thursday evening a group of dedicated conservative sat down with Sue McGuire for a couple of hours to ask her some probing question on her positions relative to the coming District 1 election.

Sue has a long history in Nevada County, being a 6th generation member of the our community.  She is a very charming person who was very open about the need for changes in Nevada County District 1.  She shared multiple examples of a “failure to communicate” by the current Captain from the Bridge of District One.

Sue is a lawyer in private practice, but was once a member of the County legal staff, giving her some insight into how the County operates. This experience will be valuable after the election.

It appears that Sue has broad support in the business community, with multiple volunteers working on her campaign.  That said, she still has some organizational issues that need to be resolved, having recently lost her Campaign Manager due to an illness. If you know of a potential replacement, please contact Sue at sueforsupervisor@gmail.com or by phone at 530-263-2060.

It is getting late in the election season to be doing detailed planning. However, all the participants were more than willing to share their thoughts with Sue. She took out her note book and scribbled down some of the ideas, and some of the challenges that she needs to be working on sooner, rather than later.

To learn more about Sue and her campaign, go to www.sueforsupervisor.com or www.facebook.com/sueforsupervisor. If you like what you see, forward the link to all your Facebook friends.

    Sue is very committed to Nevada County. As you likely saw last week at the Tea Party luncheon, she loves her home county in a deep and emotional way.

    A feww weeks ago, I spoke with a former supervisor about this election. The comment from the supervisor is that after two terms, you become “institutionalized” and “part of the team” at the county. You tend not to look beyond the staff reports and actually supervise.

    This assessment is evident when analyzing how Beason failed to review staff in connection with AtPac. I was at one of his townhalls, and he actually said that he never read Diaz’ deposition. In seven years, I have never had a client not read all of the depositions in a lawsuit…never. Such negligent supervision is not leadership.

    Change every so often is a good thing. The assembly and state senate have term limits for this very reason.
