Rhoades: Endorsing Pyska for supervisor

For the first time in 20 years, as Supervisor Rob Brown retires, District 5 voters will have the opportunity to pick a new leader to serve as county supervisor.

As a long-term Kelseyville resident, I want to emphasize the importance of picking the right candidate – one that will set the direction for the future.

This county is at a tipping point – our financial position is dire and we still face high risk from multiple disasters. Our new supervisor must be able to act decisively on both of those top priorities and more.

How can we judge the candidates' abilities?

I would suggest you take the time to view the District 5 candidates' forum held by the Lake County News on Feb. 19.

The only candidate who has a true mastery of the facts is Jessica Pyska. She also has a strong track record of accomplishments to prove that she not only has the knowledge but she also knows how to form alliances – locally, statewide and at the federal level, inspire communities and utilize innovative solutions that work.

Please vote for Jessica Pyska on March 3.

Nancy Rhoades lives in Kelseyville, California.
