What is a true POLI-TIC???

The only way to stop a POLI-TIC from sucking
us dry is to throw him out of office!!
   We have had some people ask what we mean by a POLI-TIC!    Well, a TIC sucks the blood out of whatever it latches onto and a POLI is a politician who lies and hurts many residents.

    So a true Calaveras  POLI-TIC is a politician who does nothing but suck the blood out of residents in his area or district!!

Guy Meyers denied zoning change in Valley Springs (memories of 07-242)

   At the May 19, 2016 Calaveras Planning Commission meeting Guy Meyers was denied his request to change the zoning of one of his buildings.

   Even ValleySprings.com was asking the commissioners to be more flexible. Meyers reminded the commission that our economy died in '07 when the Calaveras Supervisors ended development. (Resolution 07-242 now requires 40 acre minimums to build a home).
