A parody page of Todd Juvinall shows up as he ponders run for Supe

Former County Supervisor and CABPRO founder Todd Juvinall’s statement that he might run again for District 1 Supervisor has led to a parody Facebook page “Draft Todd Juvinall for Supervisor” that is drawing attention in the community.

“Todd Juvinall has a vision for Nevada County,” the Facebook page reads. “It will be a place where people who think alike can come together to raise families. It’s a place where what people once thought the Constitution meant still means something. It will be a place where a guy can still build a subdivision in a forest or a shopping center at an exit ramp or open a mine if he wants too.”

I had nothing to do with the page except to point it out. I have no idea who created it, but it is the kind of NC Scooper-like humor that we have come to know. The link to the “Draft Todd Juvinall for Supervisor” Facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/Draft-Todd-Juvinall-for-Supervisor-161826800844252/

Todd has gone on a rant about the page on his blog in his typical bombastic style. (Among other things, Todd informs us that he “named” the Rood Center; I did not know that). The page even has drawn the attention of Todd’s daughter.  At least someone is commenting on the page with the handle “Tracy Juvinall.”

“How about trying to make a difference in someone’s life instead of trying to tear someone down?” the person “Tracy Juvinall” writes.

“Golly Tracy Juvinall, I guess you just can’t face the fact that Todd is saying he wants to run for Supervisor and is the best choice for Nevada County,” the Facebook page’s administrator writes. “Todd sets such a good example of doing good in the community and going out of his way not to ‘tear someone down’ that we just can’t think of a better candidate. Expect to see much more from the grassroots Draft Todd Juvinall for Supervisor effort in the future.”

The administrator points to Todd’s own blog as an example of nasty, boorish, bullying, lying, insulting behavior. Internet trolls run rampant; people do not sign their names. I do not know if his daughter reads her dad’s blog.

My only observation is that Todd Juvinall reaps what he sows. Longtimers tell me he has a history of this type of behavior. One example is here.

I hope Todd decides to run for District 1 Supervisor — if only to confirm his gross misunderstanding of his popularity in our community.

I’d like to see how many people wind up voting for Todd and how much money he can raise. Todd is a retired contractor. Will the Nevada County Contractors Association endorse him? Will the Nevada County Republican Central Committee endorse him? Will current Board of Supervisor members endorse him? Will Nevada County natives such as Russ Steele or right-wing political activists such as George Rebane endorse him?

I’d also like to see people sign their names in support of him — not anonymous internet trolls who run rampant on his blog.

    The comments are rolling in on the Facebook page about Todd. Here’s the latest:
    “Mark Treadwell
    Time for Todd to pay off those back taxes before he decides to run for Supervisor!”

  2. Annie Fox says:

    Golly, gee Jeff. You didn’t start the facebook page? I thought everybody loved him except you. LOL! Now that there is some Scooper stuff/

    • jeffpelline says:

      No I am not alone. Even the longtime locals are embarrassed about him. Todd is a whiner. He kicks this whole thing off with a comment that he might run for Supe, inviting scrutiny, allows internet trolls to attack people on his site with “fat jokes,” lies and innuendo, his grown daughter comments on the Facebook page (a public site), he wrote an article about her in 2011, and he whines like this is writing about a minor. I think the problem is that no one has stood up to Todd in the past. Run Todd run for Supe! Show us all the endorsements! Show us the $$$. ROFLOL.

    • jeffpelline says:

      I’m getting a bunch of emails about Todd. Here’s an example: “Who IS this guy??!?!?!” Run, Todd run for Supe! LOL.

  3. jeffpelline says:

    Here’s another classic exchange on Todd’s blog:
    “Anonymous December 28, 2015 at 10:17 PM
    Nice to see you tonight Todd. Glad this are gong well. (sic) Barry.”

    “Todd Juvinall December 29, 2015 at 7:37 AM
    How did you like Star Wars? It was OK. Princess Leia has not aged well though.”

    “Princiss Leia has not aged well though.” What a sexist.

    He who dwells in his own fantasy blog on the Internet, shall come in a distant 2nd in the polls, In Real Life. Polls and Trolls, don’t mix well.

  5. jeffpelline says:

    Gee, do you think! LOL.

  6. jeffpelline says:

    On Todd’s blog: “Anonymous December 29, 2015 at 11:29 AM
    I nominate Paul Emery, Frisch, Ruinit and of course the FUE as the page managers. Look at the language, seen it all before from them.”

    These internet trolls just don’t get it. Todd and his trolls repulse a whole bunch of people, not just a few. And this includes the local GOP leaders. Run, Todd, run for Supe! LOL.

  7. jeffpelline says:

    Here’s another email I got: “Creep is a nice word for what this guy is. I just blocked him on Facebook.”

  8. Tony Loro says:

    I think when TODD and his troll army sabotaged the the Quaker anti-war meetings and had emails traced back to him that the local RNC guys washed their hands of this crypto-fascist.

  9. stevefrisch says:

    Tony, if you think the local Republicans washed their hands of him I’m afraid you are mistaken. Todd is right in there buddy-buddy with all the local Republican talkers and leaders. The Party has shifted so far to the right that it sometimes makes Todd looks like a RINO. The Facebook page is funny though….a perfect representation of the big idiots thought process.

  10. jeffpelline says:

    Here’s Todd’s latest contribution to the community! https://sierrafoothillsreport.com/2015/11/16/locals-dis-proposed-subdivision-on-todd-juvinalls-land-in-gv/ (For once, he had nothing to say!)

  11. jeffpelline says:

    Poor Todd. He still thinks I am the author of the parody page about him. He can’t seem to understand that many people think he is a cretin, not just me. My parody page of Todd would be much more blunt. Has anyone ever interviewed one of his ex-wives? His place gives new meaning to the term “gated community.” Or publishing his court proceedings online. Things like that. LOL.

  12. jeffpelline says:

    More brilliance from Todd Juvinall! He writes on his blog: “Cause and affect (sic)…” I think he means “Cause and effect.” ROFLOL.

  13. jeffpelline says:

    Todd’s response: “Pelline is spell checking again. The guy is a sad sack.” No Todd. Yourejustacountrybumpkin.com.
