I am writing in response to Linda Colombo’s letter regarding Chuck Holland. She accuses Mr. Holland of intimidating DA Pierson’s potential challengers.
Does Mr. Holland not have the right to question someone running for public office? DA Pierson’s opponent was not even a resident of this county. If it was not for Mr. Holland researching this, the voters of El Dorado County may have been presented with a candidate that was not legally qualified for public office. DA Pierson’s opponent has since dropped out and endorsed him for re-election.
Ms. Colombo also describes Supervisor Nutting’s situation as a series of abhorrent tactics. If it is not OK to hold an elected official responsible for their actions, then America has truly changed.
To hold Mr. Holland in a negative light, while justifying Supervisor Nutting’s actions is not right. Instead of taking responsibility for his actions, Mr. Nutting has decided to accuse others of causing his current problems. Mr. Nutting has a problem with DA Pierson because DA Pierson is doing the job he was elected to do.
Mr. Nutting recruited and financed an unqualified opponent to run against DA Pierson.
Ms. Colombo is right, this county needs a good cleaning, starting with the Board of Supervisors. If truth is the objective, Mr. Holland is not the problem.
