From MARYLYN MOTHERBEAR SCOTT
Fifth District Mendocino
Everyone wants to enjoy life. That’s one of the reasons we live in Mendocino County. Relatively, we are a small community, nonetheless noticed on a larger map. Why? Simply because we have spoken clearly with our voting voice. We have a strong model of being green, being organic, voting down GMO’s, building up Farmer’s Markets, and caring for our citizenry. We are in a lineage of old time ranchers and farmers, hippies nee neo-pioneers, artists, and small business entrepreneurs. Both the heritage and the promise — a creative individualism that runs deeply and proudly through our county’s esprit de corps and esprit de force.
When I look back to consider why I came here, it was the land pure and simple, the clean water, the clear air, the good earth, the Back to the Land Movement, the neo-pioneering lifestyle that was a part of it. Translation? Do It Yourself — grow your gardens, build your houses, teach your children well. A growing awareness. We are a treasured part of the Garden that is Mendocino County. Our part? We need political leaders who will keep us in good tilth, to help our gardens grow, to support independent means of survival, one that finds the means of support for a vibrant community, one that helps itself and has enough and some to share.
Changes are inevitable. The change we now face is more critical than ever before. In District Five, we have an opportunity to elect an experienced representative to the Supervisor’s Chambers, one who will work toward keeping our county healthy and independent, a reflection of its inhabitants. Dan Hamburg proved himself as a responsible and accessible Supervisor and Congressional representative. We need what Dan has to offer.
Dan Hamburg is not afraid of What Is. He does not hide from the experience of the people who live here. All people. Dan has the unique ability to reach across the Board, to create a political family, one that consents to itself. And he has Family Values, enough for all sides of the political spectrum. Dan Hamburg is smart, kind, dependable, honorable.
Please support Dan Hamburg for Mendocino County Supervisor, District 5. Give Mendocino County the chance to sparkle and shine.
