Measure A: Chance to turn around economy

I’m saddened to see the current economic situation of Del Norte.

Moore seems to be taking both sides on downsizing

“Clarifications about Sutter Coast issues” published on April 14 by Del Norte Healthcare District Board Director Clark Moore appear to fail to do that for they only lead into a blind alley since the resolution he quoted (Feb. 25, 2014) is apparently non-existent. My inquiry of the district (of which he is director) indicates that no such resolution was passed on Feb. 25.

Doehle is honest and fair in her decisions 

It is so important to vote in the upcoming election. It is important to know the candidates and their qualifications. Many of these offices are non-partisan, and gender should not be an issue. We should vote for the candidate who will do the best job for that office.

Jefferson would hurt health care, education

In the Deep South, some people dress up every year to re-enact the Civil War … like this time it will turn out differently. It appears that Del Norte has joined a similar theatrical event in which some folks wish to re-enact the Wild Wild West. 

I don’t think people understand that a State of Jefferson in Del Norte County would have no health care and no education. All of the health care professionals, including doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists and ophthalmologists would flee before the state was ever enacted. These professionals rely on state licensure and insurance to perform their jobs. In addition, they rely on a paycheck, health insurance and some form of retirement. I doubt anyone would forgo these basic accommodations in order to be paid with berries, wood or weed in the State of Jefferson.

Rep. Huffman appears unconcerned about us

On March 29 Congressman Huffman held a controlled town hall meeting. It was controlled because the congressman wanted questions only on two subjects: Social Security and Medicare; questions on other subjects were discouraged. All questions had to be submitted in writing. 

When he read my question he stated he would call me; he did three weeks later. My question had to do with not receiving replies to 13 of my letters. (On his e-mail page he states if a reply is wanted to check a box next to the request. I always check the box.) On the telephone he told me his staff is too busy to respond to correspondence.

Exercise your right to say no to rate increase

Do you want to pay for developer expansion?

California law says you don’t have to.

The City Council is pursuing another rate hike. Our right to protest this was given to us in Proposition 218. It spells out that ratepayers like us are only obligated to pay for operations and maintenance, not for developer expansion! Developers are legally obligated to pay for expansion. Not the ratepayers.

Trigg shows attention to domestic violence issues

Domestic violence is a hot topic and a substantial concern for our community today. The California Department of Justice (DOJ) reported domestic violence-related calls for assistance to law enforcement in 2012 with Del Norte County holding the highest rates of the entire state. Consider that is compared to Los Angeles County; Alameda County, where the City of Oakland resides; San Diego County; Humboldt County and rural counties similar to Del Norte County as well.

Team of candidates good for Del Norte

It takes a team to win. Though individual effort is highly appreciated and valued, it is the team concept that ultimately prevails and effectuates real change. The Del North County team I am voting for in June, the one I endorse is:

Dean Wilson for sheriff

Drossel’s experience shows he’s right for DA

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to elect Bob Drossel as our next district attorney. I have known Bob Drossel since I moved to Northern California over two years ago. We have worked on various committees together, and I fund his decision-making skills second to none. He faces the facts and uses his solid judicial background to make wise decisions; no nonsense, just solid decision-making and leadership.
