The proposed fees and regulations being submitted by the Butte County 
government are a total breach of our rights that we have fought so 
hard for. As a Vietnam veteran, I am astounded at the gall of the 
county government trying to receive income from the sick and poorest 
group of people in the county, who are already trying to deal with 
lack of work, decreased benefits, sky-high health-care costs, just to 
name a few.

I am calling on all Butte County residents to come together and help 
your fellow man and woman to fight this action. We are a 
free-to-speak public and should not be treated like cattle only to 
produce income for our leaders.

If the budget situation in Butte County is so dire, then some should 
take a pay cut if they are so concerned.
