Barry Pruett and Sue McGuire websites get facelift, thanks to same web designer

The internet is changing how we communicate. And the long dormant website, — once the URL for his unsuccessful race for clerk-recorder — has been spruced up, along with one for Sue McGuire, the tea party candidate for the District 1 Supervisor race. It’s all thanks to Designs by Dwight.

Barry’s new website is here. Sue’s is here. Sue’s Facebook page has 18 likes, at least so far. Barry’s legal expertise is wide-ranging, according to his website: from estate law all the way to election law.

“I redid Sue’s political campaign site:,” according to Dwight. “Her previous site was just a basic WordPress template placeholder site that didn’t look unique or custom to her needs. I took the same colors and theme I used on her flyer to create the look and feel for the site. Check it out!”

“So an earlier post showed Barry’s new website but now it is actually live and a little more professional looking. I made it with Mobile viewing in mind as well,” Dwight writes.

The images of Barry Pruett’s unsuccessful campaign website (“It’s time for a change,” etc.) by Dwight are here.

What do you think of the new websites? Should we start tracking them on Alexa or Quantcast? Or just ignore them?

  1. I don’t know why, but Nate Beason has been somewhat unresponsive to two matters of importance in my district.
    The proposed development of the HEW site and acknowledgment of the Nevada City Rancheria.
    I would like to know Ms. McGuire’s position on these issues, and many others, on the run-up to election day.

    1. I would too! BTW, Nate attended the inauguration of the Nisenan exhibit at the Firehouse Museum, I recall. Though I couldn’t make it on time, I saw him walking from the event (in a coat and tie). I hope both Sue and Nate contact you.

      1. Yes Jeff,

        Nate did attend the early part of our Inaugural Nisenan Presentation in 2009 and then had to move on to the other commitments on his busy schedule. We commend his effort for that appearance, but have not heard from him since.
        The Nevada County Board of supervisors have shown little evidence of having any grasp of the Nisenan Culture, the Nevada City Rancheria, or any of the threats to the well being and preservation of Nevada County’s own Tribal Peoples.
        I respectfully hold Supervisor Beason accountable for the BOS’s void of information about the Nisenan and the NCR, and call upon him to respond.
        I also call upon Sue McGuire to state her positions on these very important issues.

  2. I believe Mr. Beason is busy with his war on pot grows in residential areas. They are pushing for an ordinance, though the County Council is writing it –

  3. Isn’t this, in Mr. Pruett’s case, like having a 1985 Yugo, but it has a nice new paint job…..

    It’s still something that I would not want to have parked in my garage no matter how shinny!
