Former supervisor Spencer becomes CABPRO board member

John Spencer, former District 3 supervisor in a supposedly “nonpartisan” post for years, announced he is the newest CABPRO board member at a dinner for the group last night.

The new board is here: Kimberly Janousek, Kirk Pharis, Tina Marshall and Spencer. Chuck Shea is no longer listed as a board member.

“Excellent!” was Todd Junivall’s response. “We have similar views of government and the cause of our state’s and country’s problems. Liberals.”

At the dinner honoring Dan Logue, Logue “recognized (the blog of Russ Steele’s) contribution to the Prop. 23 battle,” according to Russ’ blog.

  1. Spencer does have a lot of free time now after the voters fired him in the last election… this gives him something to do with his time… a hobby is always good to have.

  2. ” … the cause of our state’s and country’s problems. Liberals.”

    It must be nice to have such a simplistic explanation for everything. It saves a lot of time that would otherwise be wasted thinking.

    The sad thing is that — even though I’ve been a liberal myself for more than 50 years — I could well imagine working with many conservatives on issues of common concern.

    But I don’t get the feeling that these CABPRO-type of conservatives would be as welcoming to me as I would be to them.

    Sad and pathetic.

  3. Better John Spencer sitting on the BOD of CABRO than on the BOS of Nevada County, and since that organization hasn’t been doing too well getting political candidates they sponsor elected to non-partisan offices in Nevada County, they probably need a man with some political espertise, that is, more recent espertise than former Supervisoe Juvenall, to give them some advice and guidance, perhaps put in a day once a week at CABRO HQ and provide more open days for the office, which is closed most of the time.
