One in District 5 down, one to go!! Tunno QUITS in Calaveras County!!

Rats can sense a
sinking ship!!
   Since David Tunno, controversial Tea Party appointment to the Calaveras Planning Commission quit in protest to the Board of Supervisors approving cannabis farming, that's a BIG one down, and one more District 5 Tea Party ASS-Phalt Kearney to go!!

   The WRITING IS ON THE WALL!  Kearney is under recall and it looks likely that Tunno sees that he will lose his seat anyway.  One of the other commissioners called
him a 'quitter'.  Extremism never wins!!

Vote NO on Resource Conservation District - Edsons' FOLLY

  The reasons we have to stop Edson's Resource Conservation District or RCD are many.

Calaveras has way too many SPECIAL DISTRICTs now!! 35????

 UPDATE:  We were just sent a list of all of the Special Districts in Calaveras County, of which there are currently 35. All of which have elections and need legal advice, in which our County Counsel and other departments get involved. 

    Therefore, the taxpayers PAYS, and Supervisor Edson lied AGAIN!! He stated there could NEVER be a cost to the taxpayers for his Special RCD or Resource Conservation District to destroy our property rights.

   Why can't Edson just tell the truth???

Criminal "Neighbors from Hell" should be arrested # 21

This camera is set up just across
the property line, aimed at our
land, apparently for their
criminal purposes, Behm's and
his drunkard friends. We often
