The first in a series of League of Women Voters of western Nevada County Candidates Forums was held last night at the Rood Center, and 4 of the 5 candidates for State Assembly District One attended. Rick Bosetti Republican, a former mayor and current city council member of Redding California was the only one not to make it to the forum as he was spending the day campaigning in another region of the district. The Question was asked, of the other 4 candidates, “Isn’t it time that California take the lead nationally for the legalization and taxing of marijuana?” Robert Meacher Democrat from Plumas County responds this way.
