Porter has experience
I support Bruce Porter in the June election for 3rd District county supervisor because he has performed duties and worked with organizations that make our lives safer and healthier.
While working for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the largest federal environment management organization, Bruce was on projects to provide safe drinking water, balance development with environmental protections, and embed environmental protection into domestic and global American operations. He was personally involved, on the ground, in fighting wildfires and responding to the world’s largest oil spills in Iraq and Kuwait.
In our community after he left the Corps, Bruce has been deeply involved in programs to improve our youth and schools, and safeguard our families from fire, flood and other disasters.
With drought, wildfires, landslides and oil spills in our own region, gas leaks in southern California, and unsafe drinking water in Michigan, I intend to vote for someone who has decades of history of successfully working to protect public health and safety.
Bruce Porter for Supervisor.

Let growers build houses
I have to agree with a recent letter writer. There is a very high level of unemployment in this area.
How about 20-30 percent? Since growers feel a need to import more workers, why doesn't the grower build near his own house? Because he doesn't want to turn his neighborhood into a slum.
If you bring a couple hundred either illegal or legal, unskilled, single guys in, it will become a slum.
