What’s with this obvious letter-writing campaign insinuating Bruce McPherson “doesn’t know the valley”? Bruce McPherson has been in Santa Cruz County all his life, which means, I bet, that he’s been here longer than anyone who was asked to pen those letters. From the time that he was a county reporter for the Santa Cruz Sentinel, which included writing articles about the San Lorenzo Valley, McPherson has shown a better understanding of the valley than any of the other people who have indicated they may run for 5th District county supervisor.
Furthermore, voters of the San Lorenzo Valley and Scotts Valley have supported him every time he has run for election, and he’s served us very well as a state senator, an assembly member and California’s secretary of state. Bruce has stood up for us when we needed financial assistance for our fire districts, when he co-authored the bond for funds we received to build the park in Boulder Creek, and when he signed the ballot agreement for Measure R to provide some financial security for our libraries in Boulder Creek, Felton and Scotts Valley. He consistently supported measures for our public schools, and more.
Bruce McPherson knows the needs of the valley very well, and we are fortunate that, with his experience, he wants to serve the people of the 5th District on the county board of supervisors.
