This election for Del Norte County supervisor is not about political parties as some would have you believe. It matters not that you are a Democrat, Republican, or no Party preference. This election is about our economy, an unacceptably high un-employment rate, and how we can make better use of our natural resources to provide more employment.
This election is about no growth versus managed healthy growth.
Last week, I was asked why a candidate’s political characterization is important when running for the non partisan position of Supervisor. It needs to be said that Del Norte County is truly a dramatically polarized county.
A huge divide exists between the Left and Right. The Left does everything in its ring of influence to ensure that Del Norte County has zero population growth which results in economic stagnation.
I represent a position of managed, healthy private sector economic growth which, when set free from the reins of over-government will stimulate creation of many new private sector jobs. I define economic growth when someone from outside the economic bubble visits and spends his or her money here. The more outside dollars attracted to Del Norte County, the faster we move toward prosperity
My opponent has been financially and politically supported by the proponents of no-growth, groups which results in a continually depressed economy. By helping the private sector develop, we begin to transition from dependency to self-sufficiency.
A vote for the incumbent is a vote for no growth, rubber stamping the mistakes of the past and a vote for no change in the status quo. We deserve better…
Many of you know me as a fiscal watchdog, a limited government conservative, ,and a patriot. Your vote for me is a vote to turn the County toward a path to prosperity. In coalition with like-minded Supervisors, I hope to be part of the team that fixes Del Norte County.
