Dear Editor, Please consider my letter regarding Property Rights...We all work hard for our paycheck. That paycheck is our money. With the money we earn, we buy property; property in the form of food, clothes, transportation, housing and groceries. What we earn is literally the fruit of our labor. When we purchased our property, it was with an understanding of its responsibilities and its potential. Our Founding Fathers knew that the respect for and protection of the rights to our property were key to maintaining peace in the community and achieving prosperity and they saw to it that the Constitution protected our right to use our property as we please, provided we do not harm the rights of others....

Taxpayers Urge Protecting Property Rights~by Al Segalla

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/26/2010 07:45 AM
"The Calaveras County Taxpayers Association (CCTA) continues to urge support for Alternative D in the General Plan Update process. In addition, the group wants property owners to be notified in writing when the county seeks to change their land use designation, according to Al Segalla, CCTA President. He said his group will continue to seek public support for General Plan property rights protection. He commented on several positive features of taxpayer supported Alternative D: ...

OPEN LETTER TO CALAVERAS BOARD OF SUPERVISORS May 24, 2010

Posted by: thepinetree on 05/24/2010 08:00 AM
Subject: General Plan Update

"Dear Supervisors:

Your choice of the Mintier-Harnish alternative B/C does not appear to reflect the choice of your constituents as claimed by the consultants. The "visioning workshops" that I attended were under represented by voters and property owners and dominated by the consultants, facilitators and outside interest groups who packed the workshops to effect outcomes suiting their purpose, namely UN Agenda 21 smart growth. Conversely, Alternative D was the clear choice of the citizens at the well attended April 20 joint session ....

"Editor, Last week a mean-spirited voter mailer was sent to the residents of Arnold. Clearly, one of the candidates for supervisor of District 3 considers the voters in this county to be moronic rubes with IQs below room temperature. This I find offensive. I'm not concerned about the effect this will have on Merita Callaway's campaign. She has taken the high road and continues to talk about issues of importance to the residents of the county. Meanwhile, Bill McManus and his minions in the Calaveras Business Council are frantically slinging mud with their chicken-little sound bites of paranoid delusions and worn-out conspiracy theories. If profanity is....

Reading the local papers and watching allegations flying around, you’d think we lived in the DC Beltway instead of Calaveras County. What has happened to candidates letting the voters know what they stand for and what they are going to do if elected rather than hurling accusations, half truths and out right lies about their opponents? This is a critical time for voters of Calaveras County. We are going to decide who is going to head four important functions of our local government – the Treasurer-Tax Collector, the Auditor-Controller, the Assessor, and the Clerk-Recorder. In addition, we are going to decide on a new Sheriff and will be voting for Supervisors in districts three and five. ....

"Calaveras County Cannabis Wars...The stage is set... The recession hit Calaveras hard in 2009. Budgets were again slashed, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) suffered. Among other cuts, all extra-hire deputies were released and one full time deputy position was laid off. Cutting from the top, Sheriff Dennis Downum released Gary Kuntz, a 25 year veteran and Lieutenant with the CCSO. Soon afterwards and with the backing of Supervisor Steve Wilensky, a medical marijuana supporter and Downum nemesis, Kuntz soon announced his candidacy for Sheriff. As Kuntz is an affable, well known, and respected, deputy in our county, the race immediately promised to be a serious contest.....

Editor: "I am concerned about the future of Calaveras County. I believe, but am not certain, that Orange is the only County in California to declare bankruptcy. It may surprise some to learn that the Orange County Employees Association (OCEA) provided both guidance and financial support to survive that experience. Calaveras County doesn’t have an OCEA. Orange went under because the spending exceeded income and the economy tanked all at the same time. Sound familiar ? Recently, our economy has been in trouble..., no question ! That leaves the balance between revenue and expenses. It is likely that the costs for providing a decent sheriff’s office, road maintenance, communications, snow removal, etcetera, will be higher in the future. Costs tend to go up.....

Dear Editor,

"As the recently retired County Assessor, I am naturally interested in the upcoming election. During my 30-plus years in the Assessor’s Office, 10 as Assessor, I have gained considerable knowledge as to what type of a person it takes to successfully lead the office. That person is Leslie Davis. I was able to retire last year with peace of mind knowing that my Assistant Assessor Leslie was more than qualified to take the reins....

"The General Plan Town Hall Meeting...The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors went down a dark road Tuesday 4/20 and voted completely against the will of the people. Did they not have enough time to study Alternative D? All the other choices have serious shortcomings. They are embodiments of “Smart Growth” also known as “U.N. Agenda 21” with people stacked up in high-rises (high-density) and animals running free in proposed “open spaces” (vacated homes, ranches and farms?) (Google: Wildlands Project by Dr. Michael Coffman.) Alternative D maintains property rights and would be accepted by most taxpayers. So, why is it not on the table? .....

Dear Taxpayer, The Calaveras County Taxpayers Association has been working to encourage our Calaveras County General Plan and local government to better protect liberty and property rights for several years. It has been a frustrating and thankless job, but a necessary one, if there is to be a return to prosperity in our county. The county is going though a General Plan Update process and the public was given three alternatives to choose from - all hurtful to property rights....
