It's not about commercial grows. It's about democracy and our rights 
to voice our opinions and be heard. Not to have a public official in 
office who by past reports doesn't know how to interact with the 
community as displayed. You are not the voice of District 1 - we are.

I urge everyone I know to sign any form to recall Yuba County 
Supervisor Andy Vasquez. Illegal grows will not stop due to a 
ordinance passed in bad faith. It will just make you, a patient, a 
criminal like the illegal cartels in their eyes if you do grow.

Things go deeper than the marijuana ordinance.

Why not use our tax dollars for things needed: education, drug 
education, roadwork, parks, schools  maybe use it to hire more 
teachers, reducing crowding in classrooms like California did in prisons.

Our county is in debt. They seek debt relief by selling our water, 
but yet our water is why the marijuana ordinance was placed as an 
urgency ordinance. Bad faith if I ever saw it.

So say goodbye to Vasquez and the rest of the board of supervisors. 
Put someone in office who truly cares.
