Jerry Johnson for District 5

I was undecided about who to vote for in the District 5 Placer County supervisor race until I saw Harriet White?s letter in your May 16 edition (?District 5 job can?t be bought.?) Ms. White said that candidate Jerry Johnson had injected $20,000 of his own money into his campaign. That is important to me because it shows Jerry Johnson wants to reach out to Auburn voters and isn?t sitting around waiting for other people to pay his campaign bills. Too many elected officials and candidates for local offices don?t believe in themselves enough to put their own money where their mouth is. They always come nagging the voters to pay the bills for them. If a candidate doesn?t believe in themselves enough to dig into their own pocket first, why should we vote for them? My thanks to Ms. White for bringing that fact to my attention. I will be voting for Jerry Johnson for supervisor. Aillene Cole, Weimar
