I'm responding to Guy Houston's position on Windmill Farms. It's frustrating to see a candidate spending time grandstanding on issues they can only control through their vote in Sacramento. Guy, step back from the cameras and reporters, shaking hands asking for signatures on a petition that will not see the light of day. Mr. Houston, you know full well this issue will be decided by state laws that you were elected to pass and the County Environmental Health Department is responsible for the enforcement and implementation of such. I encourage you to go back to work at the State Assembly for which you are currently being paid and change the laws if you feel the State and Environmental Laws are inadequate.

Judy, thank you for protection our Windmill Farms. BUT, Guy Houston did what was needed to be done to get local voice and commitment behind his efforts at the state and county level to resolve this, actually, very silly issue. Unless local voice is LOUD, little government action will happen because nobody will be listening.
Guy has done city level activities and understands the local voice needed to make changes. Sure Guy had campaign interests, but the result was earnest and important to all of us. Windmill Farms is ours to protect and preserve.
