Interrogate, Acknowledge, and Celebrate Three Powerful, Respected Republican Women Serving Nevada County’s Citizens will make up our panel of speakers.

     Should women make the big decisions?  Are women capable of analyzing complex matters?  Should women control the purse strings?  Are women more “in touch” with local issues?  Should you trust a woman with your vote?  

     The answer is yes.  On October 20th we welcome to our new venue, The Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City, three highly competent women holding important county positions, a Supervisor, an Assessor, and a Planning Commissioner. We have asked each to highlight the issues in their official arena that have the greatest effect on our county and require citizen input.  We also want to know about anything coming up from Sacramento, potential or actual issues which should be concerning to county residents.

     Sue Hoek, Supervisor District 4, follows in the footsteps of her grandfather and great grandfather, active in community and agricultural affairs.  A 5th generation Nevada County native, Sue manages the family’s cow/calf operation in Penn Valley.  Her community involvement stretches from President of the Nevada County Farm Bureau, Director of the California Farm Bureau Federation District 15, Chair of the Nevada County Agricultural Advisory Commission, President of the County Resource Conservation District, to many other service and educational organizations.  Supervisor Hoek says. ”I have seen many changes and not all for the good. We need economic growth while still maintaining that small county atmosphere. Fire safety and wildfire preparedness, homelessness along with mental health, and affordable housing have been and will continue to be critical issues for the community.”

     Sue Horne, our elected County Assessor took office in January 2011 and has served continuously in that capacity.  Sue is a Board of Equalization Certified Advanced Property Tax Appraiser and has served as Vice President of the Northern California Assessors Association.  Sue is dedicated to serving the public and ensuring that Nevada County tax payers receive a fair and accurate assessment of their taxable property in accordance with California tax law.  Conservative politics runs through Sue’s resume.  She served two State Assemblymen before being elected to represent the south county as Supervisor, District 2, the position she held for 2 terms, 2001-2008.  Sue and her family have made Nevada County home since 1980.  Sue and her husband live in Alta Sierra.    

     Patti Ingram Spencer recently tendered her resignation from the County Planning Commission in order to run for Supervisor, District 3.  It will be hard to find anyone with more knowledge of Grass Valley’s history and propensities.  Her great-grandfather, grandfather, and father each, in turn ran The Union newspaper.  Patti was elected to the Grass Valley City Council in 1996.  She served two 4 years terms and represented the City as Vice Mayor and Mayor and later as planning commissioner.  Patti says, “I am proud to say during those years of service with the City, one of our major accomplishments was working with the Nevada County Transportation Commission to build the Dorsey Drive Interchange providing much needed access to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, Sierra College and Nevada Union High School.”  Patti is retired from a 43 year career as a title and escrow officer.  She and her husband live in Grass Valley.
