    I understand the frustration that many in Siskiyou County and other North State communities feel with the state government not paying enough attention to our needs. But the solution is to send better legislators to Sacramento with the skills necessary to provide responsible solutions. Doug LaMalfa wasn't that sort of state senator, and he hasn't been that sort of Congressman. We deserve better, and that's why I'm in this race.

    Thanks for reading, and for your support!

      I live near Grass Valley and was really frustrated that my choice for representative in the last election was between 2 conservative repubs. Of the two, I thought LaMalfa seemed the craziest, so I voted for the other guy. Apparently I was right.

      I wish you luck bringing sanity to the next race.

      or particularly in being heard, as far as I can tell.

      There certainly are plenty of times when those of us in the hinterlands feel some frustration with people in Sacramento and possibly Washington about some assumption or failure to understand the nuances of life outside the major metro areas. The problem is that no one who needs to hear is going to listen to LaMalfa about anything.

      Of course, these districts are remarkably large, with the needs of Grass Valley quite different from Siskiyou as well.

      Water issues are a big one. Obviously people are worried about supply. Currently there are new regulations proposed for water runoff from ag lands that are supposed to cover a huge set of diverse watersheds. The fundamental question that our people are asking is, "How will you decide what counts as uncontaminated?" particularly given that one of the contaminants is sediment. No one can answer that so far, nor do they accept that some of the contaminants could be coming from wildlands or idle land as well.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
