Scofield had been named in a Fair Political Practice Commission complaint alleging county officials had inappropriately used county reources to publicly oppose Measure S. The complaint was dismissed by the FPPC Monday. The Supervisor says he is pleased with that decison and believes that the web site is an appropriate way to communicate with his constituents.

Measure S would have replaced the current Marijuana Cultivation Ordinance with what supporters say would bring Nevada County inline with state law and allow medicinal marijuana cultivators to grow enough marijuana to meet the needs of patients. Measure S failed with a 69 -31 percent vote.
