Handprint

EDITOR:

Once, the supervisors came to the homeowners’ rescue near the casino. There lived an attorney who claimed the group as a non-profit, and the Indians won their hard, expensive lawsuit. We the taxpayers paid the bill, so now the casino is a big asset and contributor to this county.

Now I’m seeing this attorney’s handprint on the lawsuit brought against Ray Nutting; this has nothing to do with a grant. Ron Briggs and Joe Harn are deviant politicians who are drunk with power. Just because Ron Briggs (supervisor) withdrew himself after he was exposed to be involved with the land sale for the courthouse … I say if they plan to use tax money for this unnecessary courthouse, the investors should be known to the taxpayers and how much they contributed personally.

How many businesses and land does this attorney own? He stands to make a lot of money. The step aside doesn’t mean Ron Briggs is not keeping his buddies informed.

I’m sorry this year there is not grant money to assist low income property people with land clearing, now that they found the hidden, illegally collected Cal Fire funds. Brown said he found a lot of money; put this money into grants for forest fires. I’m glad Ray can protect our forest with his grant; it is expensive to clear his acreage every year. I ask how would Ron Briggs and Harn feel if a fire sweeps through Placerville and their properties, ashes in their fingers, too late?

    OMG, Ray will not stop trying to sell us all snake oil and telling us it will cure all that is wrong, when in fact it is Ray. Just like the clothes that don't fit and the taylor just tells you to gather the excess material up and it will look better. We are not buying it Ray and we are fed up, for those who believe in him, we know that the truth will be shown. For now do as you wish and just know that what has been reported is true and all the charges are with merit. We the people have been wronged and soon we will serve as the judges of the facts, we can only hope that Ray sees this and leaves and corrects his behavior.
