Regrets on Ray Nutting Fundraiser
An open letter from John Neumann
I'm sorry I can't be at the Christmas party on Thursday, but I would still like to contribute $--- to your defense fund, simply because I have great respect for you as a person and how diligently you take care of people around you.
I hear people speak highly of you all the time, Ray.
Just a month ago I had a pest control guy come up to Stephanie Court, some 20 year old kid, and he had heard that Ray Nutting lives "up here somewhere".
When I told him you were less than a mile away, he talked about meeting you once while you were out campaigning. He got all excited sharing the story, like he had met a rock star! That led to a conversation about him considering running for office someday. Apparently you left a great impression on the guy.
I suspect that there are a thousand stories just like that one circulating around El Dorado County.
