Response to Supervisor Nutting

EDITOR:

County Supervisor Nutting recently contacted me regarding my letter to you on Aug. 16. This letter asked him to recuse himself from voting at county Board of Supervisors meetings until his legal troubles are resolved.

He encouraged me to read the recent 995 Motion to Dismiss that his attorney filed with the court. He stated that as a “college educated man” I would clearly understand what was going on after reading the motion.

Supervisor Nutting, I did read the Motion to Dismiss. The information in the document further cements my opinion that you should recuse yourself from voting as a member of the Board of Supervisors. A large portion of the document deals with the technicalities of what is considered a false document and what isn’t. The document reveals that you knew something was wrong ethically and morally, and you utilized as many legal avenues as possible to hopefully make things legal technically. This is the kind of behavior by elected officials that has enraged hardworking taxpayers.

I firmly believe the best and proudest days for El Dorado County are ahead. In order for this belief to become reality, behavior exhibited by yourself needs to disappear from the political landscape. The rule of constitutional law cannot exist when our elected officials pervert the law to benefit their own financial well-being. We need  elected officials who believe in constitutional law with their whole being. They need to believe it in terms of ethics and morals. They need to believe in constitutional law with the same level of enthusiasm that the founders of this great nation did.

In concluding this letter, I would like to ask Supervisor Nutting a question: What does the term “public servant” mean to you?

A public servant is supposed to have integrity. Integrity cannot be bought or traded, and it certainly cannot be ensured through debating technicalities. Integrity has to be earned by doing what’s right, just, and fair for the people he has been elected to represent.
