Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, May 26, 2010 13B LETTERS, from page 12B candidate who will not use the "duck and cover" technique and does not consider public input a rather bothersome in- terfering quirk. He will be ob- jective, critical of actions on the margin, and is fully capa- ble of communicating clearly and directly. It&apos;s time to be optimistic again. Paul Bianco Graeagle Good-hearted Every time I call Jan Kennedy's cell phone, I know who will be on the other line: a genuine, sincere, good- hearted guy. I've called him numerous times for both financial and life advice, and he doesn't just listen, he truly hears my con- cerns and sincerely wants to find a solution. He always seems to have the right an- swer even though he never gives the answer he thinks you want to hear. In other words, Jan is frank and to the point. No fluffy, make-you-feel- good finswers like so many other politicians, just the truth. I've known Jan Kennedy for well over eight years, so I feel like I know him pretty well. Jan is a man of many talents, so I was not surprised to hear he was running for supervi- sor. Everythrng Jan attempts, he does well because he gives everything 100 percent and leaves nothing undone. The bottom line is this: Jan Kennedy is a tell-it-like-it is, everyday kind of guy whose intelligence and authenticity can carry Plumas County for- ward. I am proud to call Jan Kennedy my friend, and would be even prouder to call him my supervisor. Joey Fowler Clio Won't wilt I am writing in support of Jan Kennedy's bid for supervisor of District 5. Mr. Kennedy is the rare individual who has the skills to lead, the passion for service and the personality and drive to get things done. I am a resident of Sonoma County not wilt in the face of a crisis. With respect to the issues that face Plumas County and its residents, I am certain that Mr. Kennedy has done his homework. He has shown me he will be well informed on lo- cal topics that demand a sense of urgency. These include the local economy, jobs, education and the county's infrastruc- ture. He will meet challenges head on and his unique ability to listen will insure that all voices be heard and addressed. Mr. Kennedy is also a terrific mediator; his problem-solving talent is impressive. Should it come to pass that Mr. Kennedy becomes "Mr. Supervisor," District 5 will benefit enormously. He is for real and he will do a great job. Maria Pometta Petaluma Strong voice I met Jan Kennedy several years ago while I was a stu- dent at Portola High School. He has continuously motivat- ed me to pursue a higher edu- cation, and played a big role in my decision to attend college. Because of his constant sup- port and emphasis on educa- tion, I pursued a B.A. and will graduate in December, and will attend a graduate pro- gram later in the year. I understand that a county supervisor does not have ju- risdiction over public educa- tion, but Jan Kennedy is not your typical supervisor. He plans to step outside the role of an average supervisor and work with the community to further education. During these tough economic times, a strong voice for our schools should be heard. I think edu- cation is a topic oftentimes ne- glected by government offi- cials, but I know that in elect- ing Jan Kennedy, the educa- tion of our future leaders will not be overlooked. Although I don't have kids of my own yet, I would feel confident raising them under a supervisor who has the po- tential to influence their edu- cation as much as Jan Kennedy has influenced mine. Jenny Miller Davis End incompetence Our district is currently rep- resented by a politician who, and have Jon for more since he graduated college, th 20 yethat time, he : has been strictly a career has shown a great sense of politician. TO make matters professionalism and maturity. I can also state without hesita- tion that he is one of the most determined, dedicated, intelligent and caring individ- uals I have had the pleasure of being associated with. He is both approachable and acces- sible. I know that his deep and insatiable motivation to en- sure the best for his children and family will make him a successful supervisor. Fur- thermore, the man simply will worse ... he doesn't even live in our district. His name: Tom McClintock, and he doesn't seem to care much about the needs of the people in the Fourth District. In the June 8 primaries, we have an opportunity to vote for someone who lives in the district and has a lifetime ot experience working in many areas of the private sector. Michael Babich, who current- ly resides in Auburn, is chal: lenging Tom McClintock in the upcoming Republican pri- mary elections for U.S. Con- gress. Babich is an Army colonel (ret.), businessman, educator and Ph.D. medical re- searcher with years of real- world experience and awards. That is what it will take to truly understand the problems America faces and to develop new ideas to address them. In- stead of going to Washington and just voting yes or no on legislation, like our current congressman does, Babich plans to introduce real pieces of legislation for our district. He would also attend commit- tee meetings and hearings in areas he has real:world experi- ence to make real change in- side Washington. Unfortunately, people get comfortable with an incum- bent. It is time we the people take a stand and put an end to the incompetence in Congress by voting out the career politi- cians and replacing,them with citizen legislators ... that is clearly what our constitution- al framers intended. I encour- age you all to take a stand and help start this trend by voting for Michael Babich on June 8.

As a 27-year resident of Plumas County I am embar- rassed to say I'm from Plumas County. The way the supervisors railroaded this fine young deputy is inexcusable and shameful. They could do it again to any of our dedicated deputy sheriffs who put their lives on the line every day. If character counts in Plumas County, then I say vote them all out of office. Brian G. Hudson Portola Just another blind mice IfI have a brain that pays at- tention to our politic and fi- nancial lying and thieving and how our presidency just print- ed up money to save the thieves and how there ain't an American breathing that un- derstands what the hell our voted are doing, I really think it's time for "investigating and prosecuting" the people who just keep smiling and thieving or smiling and caring not for us, Americans, vofers, taxpay- ers.., blind mice. It ain't a movie we're watch- ing ... it's all of our lives. We just change the channel Or turn the damn movie off. Years now homes been lost and it's been a full month that the gulf is getting lost. Noth- ing's been done. Just excuses, excuses, and oh hell, let's change the subject, what a nice day, a little cloudy but plug my ears and cover my eyes and ahh it's dark and qui- et; how nice.
