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!

    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.

We like to find plots for sale in ruiru today. However, sometimes we also need to have roofing tiles kenya. That's pretty good for business. While some people is trying hard to get health insurance in kenya, they also struggle for house for sale in kitengela. After that, they used to find any services like cctv installers kenya directly. While the others, try to purchase container kenya in the web cars for sale in kenya. The last one, borehole drilling in kenya is a good option.
