  • Letter: Richard Thomas | Heidi Hall a refreshing alternative

    The Union newspaper logo

    I can give both Heidi Hall and her opponent credit for their up front honesty, but LaMalfa’s position on climate change (among others) leaves me baffled.

    In Nevada City’s debate, he first stated that human activities had nothing to do with any climate change. He later qualified it to say, “Maybe just a little bit.” In attempting to minimize human contributions to CO2 releases, he stated that a single volcanic eruption spewed more CO2 than 10 years worth of L.A.’s auto emissions.

    I’d heard variations of this ‘volcano’ argument before, often stated that volcanoes emit more CO2 than human activities, but I had not looked it up. The U.S. Geological Survey’s answer to either assertion is a resounding “false!”

  • Heidi Hall or Doug LaMalfa? Nevada County voters decide

    The Union newspaper logo

    There are less than two weeks to go before Election Day, and vote-by-mail ballots have already gone out. Most of the races decided on Nov. 4 will by hyper-local, but Nevada County residents will also have a say in deciding who represents this region in Congress – Republican incumbent Doug LaMalfa or challenger Heidi Hall.

    ...

    Hall, the Democratic challenger, has been critical of that work. As the parent of a veteran, she has called LaMalfa’s votes on veterans issues “deeply disappointing.”

    “He has again allied himself with extremists in Congress who are choosing an ideological position that no government is the best government,” Hall said during the primary. “That has meant he’s voted against additional help, additional money, and additional training for veterans and for the VA.”

  • Op-Ed: Heidi Hall | Fiscal Responsibility in the North State: Who is the Actual Fiscal Conservative in this Congressional Race?

    aNewsCafe.com news site logo

    As a woman who has managed a family budget for over 30 years, and as a former manager with responsibility over million-dollar budgets, I am deeply concerned about the fiscal irresponsibility shown by our current Congress, especially in the House of Representatives, and in the group my opponent has chosen to ally himself with for the past two years.

    The House writes the budget for the government. It begins there, gets negotiated with members of the Senate to reflect their wishes, and a compromise budget goes to the President to sign. With this budget, we taxpayers fund things like roads, bridges and schools; social services that we all use; social services that benefit specific groups like veterans, the short-term unemployed, and those living below the poverty line; it funds research and development into better and cheaper energy and better disease prevention. We also fund the military, our post offices, and clean air and water. All of our state and local budgets depend to some degree upon this largesse from the Federal budget.

    The 2012-3 House of Representatives is, by all accounts, the least productive and least fiscally conservative in the history of our country. Programs are left languishing, solutions to real, nationwide programs are left unaddressed, and the House even shut down the government.

    Worst of all, Tea Party extremists, including our own Congressman Doug LaMalfa, who successfully bully their more moderate Republican colleagues into compliance, are wasting vast amounts of our tax dollars on political gambling with virtually no payoffs. Do you know how your Representative voted on these wasteful bills, resolutions and programs?
