Developers Trying to Run El Dorado County - Opinion
WOW, this 'interview' with Josh Woods doesn't go over the other (REAL, in my opinion) purpose of the 'Fix Our Roads' initiative.
If approved, the initiative actually will make DEVELOPERS IMMUNE TO LAW CHANGES made in the future. This will allow developers to run amok in this county, REGARDLESS of Voter resistance, zoning changes or new initiatives.
Josh Wood (aka the "Assassin") is the head of Region Builders, a group deeply interested in building thousands of homes here. Their proposed projects include SAN STINO, Marble Valley & Tilden Park. These 3 alone represent over 5,000 NEW HOMES in our area.
The traffic just from SAN STINO's 1017 homes, is estimated at OVER 4,600 CARS A DAY going in & out on our roads & freeways. *Does anyone out there think THAT will fix our roads?*
I sure hope not! Josh Woods' PAID, imported petitioners tricked people into signing their petitions in many cases. I myself saw a petitioner saying that the initiative was about stopping sex offenders. A woman signed the top section of his document. The petitioner then quickly guided her to sign a 2nd lower area on that petition (while covering most of it with his hand), saying "And sign right here too". He did NOT explain that she was signing to approve Josh Woods initiative about developer immunity.
These dirty methods to get signatures are clearly intended to MISLEAD THE PUBLIC (in my opinion).* NO MATTER WHAT SIDE YOU'RE ON I bet you WOULDN'T approve of developers being IMMUNE to voter opinion & law changes.
Stand up & be counted by signing the 1-2-3 (green yellow purple) petitions to close holes in our laws! TO SIGN, GO TO www.LVC-EDC.ORG. Theres a list of locations where you can sign. WE ONLY HAVE TWO WEEKS LEFT TO GATHER SIGNATURES! If you can help gather signatures call me!! *
A WITHDRAWAL FORM to REMOVE your signature from the developer's 'Fix Our Roads' petition is available there as well.
I've been to a lot of Board of Supervisors. meetings & I can tell you that the ONLY one I'm SURE supports the rural nature of this county, is Ray Nutting. It made him a target for a recent lawsuit that this County spent a fortune on (thanks to dear Joe Harm & DA Vern Pierson). They LOST that case; AND it all went down in flames when EVERY witness they had testified on Ray Nutting's behalf (except one who took the 5th).
Joe Harm, from what I've read, has had a 'tyrannical rule" over his staff & coworkers for a long time. Evidently, those same County employees are banding together and blowing the whistle and his antics.
