Too often people get locked into political argument about government, taxes, etc.. This agenda is one small example of what government does, how taxes are spent, and how important it is to the county, the state and the nation. Good reading for anyone.

      Thank you for offering this CAR, but it would have been more helpful if you held TWO debates, one in each of District 3 and District 5. Do you really think enough people from Rancho/Jenny Lind are going to drive up to Angels Camp? Or from Dorrington? You would have truly been serving the community if you presented it in locations where the voters live rather than in the prettiest hall.

      In the end, the candidates will be happy, since the crowd will be minimal, especially from District 5 voters.

        The location is in the Center of the County for convenience. If, you are interested in knowing the candidates! If not, there are other Candidate nights that you can attend. Hope you find the time to educate yourself before voting either way!

          The center of the county is roughly San Andreas, not Angels. Look at a map. Look at the populations. It is the county seat where Government Center is for a reason.

          Once again, Highway 4 mentality takes over.

    True, yet you must realize how vague and limited agendas are. Notice especially the closed sessions... This is not much information. I still don't understand what's going on with our tax dollars- I don't know about you!

Quit your belly aching, the government for the people and by the people has the gas over $4 again, so the only ones that will show up are the ones that can walk to the auditorium.

    Bellyache? You got it all wrong. I'm pleased that our Supervisors are working and doing things for the county. And I will point out again it is the people who say government doesn't do anything that are the "bellyachers".

    We are fortunate to have Supervisor Callaway's experience. She is the only BOS member who fully understands how county government works, and has successfully resolved many issues over the years. I'm confident District 3 voters will reelect her for another term.
