Ray Nutting’s donation for DA

From page A5 | April 25, 2014 |

EDITOR:

I wonder if the people who donated money for Ray Nutting legal help feel stupid? Here Ray has made a cry for help with his legal and financial burden and yet he can write a $999 check to a DA candidate who was obviously brought in from another county to run against the evil Vern Pierson, who has made poor Ray look bad.

I’m amazed at the how some politicians can get people to believe the line of bull they put out. Ray are you so “high” up on Mount Politician that you think no one can touch you if you are corrupt? Not even the DA and Grand Jury?

In 2011, my father passed away and at his funeral good old Ray shows up as usual at any opportunity to show his face. He proceeded to tell me how poor he is and look at this little car he now is forced to drive. I looked at the car and to me it looked like an economy car that you would buy to save money, but to old Ray it was a disgrace that he was so poor he is now forced to drive it. At the same funeral, he approached me about some small pine logs he wanted to sell off his property in Happy Valley. I told him I like cedar mostly and I can’t afford to buy logs and figure the cost into my products. Then I was asked, “What can you make from these logs that I can sell?” I had no answer. Then I heard about his land clearing grant and told old Ray, “It is against the law to sell logs and wood from the area you received grant money from the state to clear for fire hazard.” Which I was told immediately that these logs were from another part of his property and not from the area he was paid to clear with taxpayers money.

I wondered how is it you can clear small trees and brush from one part of your property with no taxpayers money and yet you need $70,000 from hard-working Californians to clear other parts of your property?

I read some statements in some local paper from old Ray saying his ranch is a money pit and he was being forced to pay Cal Fire for putting out his out of control controlled burns. Yet writing a check for $999 to Mr. Henry is no problem.

Ray has known my family and relatives all his life. I am alone on this as I am alone on many fronts I do battle on. I know old Ray has lots of friends who will not like reading this letter, but I have had a belly full of Ray and his arrogant ways. He has said he’s a logger and even donated money using Nutting Logging as his identification, but there is no Nutting Logging listed in the business licenses for El Dorado County. Nor could I find a contractors license for Nutting Logging.

Just because you can run a chain saw does not make you a professional logger, Ray. I’m a fourth-generation woodsman and did work for 15 years as a professional logger and not once did I ever see you out there.

Cut the crap Ray and step down now before you step in more of what you’re spreading.
