In the meantime with regards to Roberts Creek, for now I’ll be following my own advice when asked the other day by the Coast Reporter about whether I was endorsing a particular candidate:
“It’s great to have five candidates running in Roberts Creek, and will make for a healthy discussion of the issues. Two of those candidates are known well to the community, having run in 2011 and 2014. I would encourage Roberts Creekers to learn about the platforms and approaches of the three new candidates during the campaign, and make an informed voting decision accordingly.”
