Supervisor Ray Nutting

By From page A7 | August 23, 2013

EDITOR:

I have been keeping track of the situation involving Supervisor Ray Nutting. I will admit that I don’t have or know all of the details.

However, from what I have read, given my background in business, it appears to me that Supervisor Nutting did what every good businessman does. He has taken advantage of every opportunity to make a profit. He has seized every chance to increase his return on the investments he has made. As an entrepreneur and businessman, why shouldn’t he do everything to increase his return?

The purpose of being in business and investing is to make money. If what Supervisor Nutting did was take advantage of legal programs that are available to any business person then he is doing what he should as a businessman. The only question in my mind is did he use his influence as a supervisor to make his profit? If he used his status as an elected official to further his business interests in anything other than a legal manner, that will be adjudicated; if he didn’t, then all of this noise about Supervisor Nutting will be, to paraphrase William Shakespeare, “a tale full sound and fury signifying nothing.”
