Conklin traded integrity for money, Jeff Ackerman, Union Publisher, October 26, 2004
“In a 14-month period from April 2003 through June of 2004, Bruce Conklin was paid more than $82,000 by the Nevada County Land Trust from the same money he voted to transfer to the Trust during his last official act as a Nevada County supervisor.”
Jeff does a great job explaining why you should not vote for Bruce Conklin. My choice would be John Spencer. He has worked both sides of the counter at the County, as a service provider and service consumer. He know how the County works. A man of integrity, he will not bend the rules for his own benefit, like Conklin.

The most bothersome aspect of this whole tragedy it that Mr. Wilson gave the money to the community for open space and parks, so future generations of children could have a place to play. Now the money is gone, and the children have no new ball field, picnic areas or hiking trails to use. Only a broken down house, with a new roof, where they cannot even plan in the yard.

Tell me what you think
