Assemblyman Dan Logue, a very conservative Republican who lives over in Linda in Yuba County, has endorsed Barry Pruett for clerk-recorder in our county.
“Barry has the skills, experience, and necessary judgment needed to administer secure and fair elections in Nevada County,” Logue said in a statement. “Barry will make sure taxpayer dollars are spent wisely while protecting the integrity of the electoral process in Nevada County.”
Pruett’s campaign treasurer, Fran Freedle this week has written an article for CABPRO’s website titled “Corruption with a capital ‘C.’” She is referring to health care reform.
“Who would ever have thought that a candidate for President who promised transparency would bring such corruption to our nation?” Freedle, a former supervisor, wrote.
Fran also is an active Republican who was bumped from the clerk-recorder’s post six years ago after supervisors felt she was appointed more in a case of “not what you know but who you know” — an ongoing problem here. The late Supervisor Drew Bedwell, a GOP along with his successor John Spencer, had added Fran’s name to the list.
Supervisor Nate Beason, a moderate Republican, has endorsed incumbent Greg Diaz for clerk-recorder. “Greg has done an exemplary job in bringing stability, order and transparency to an office left in confusion and disarray after the abandonment of it by his predecessor.”
Long-time clerk-recorder Bruce Bolinger also has endorsed Diaz.
