Nevada County Attorney Sue McGuire is announcing that she is seeking the office of First District Supervisor for Nevada County, currently held by Nate Beason. McGuire has two decades as an attorney in Nevada County. Her family has lived in the county for six generations. McGuire says her first priority is jobs.
“To have a healthy local economy we have to have tax revenues. I’m seeing businesses leave Nevada County. I recall it happening on the current board Mountain People’s Warehouse, when they left. And now they’re a multimillion dollar company. People are seeking their advice and they left Nevada County. We can’t let that happen.”
Supervisor Beason has not declared his candidacy for a 3rd term as supervisor; he ran unopposed in 2008 but says he will make an announcement in 2 to 3 weeks.
