“This recall petition is unwarranted, is a waste of your government’s time and a waste of your taxpayer dollars,” states Nevada County Supervisor Ed Scofield (a staunch political conservative, by the way) in a statement reprinted in The Union.
Adds Dan Miller (another staunch political conservative): “This recall is an emotional response and desperate effort by a fringe minority who did not get their way. Their allegations lack credibility and do not withstand the test of truth.”
“This recall is divisive, expensive and unnecessary. It will cost District 4 taxpayers up to $250,000, money better spent on fire safety, schools and supporting local businesses,” added Sue Hoek, who represents conservative Penn Valley.
The other two supervisors — Heidi Hall and Hardy Bullock — echoed similar sentiments.
