Joan Trombetta Clendenin: Monteith stands strong for beliefs

May 18, 2014 

In the 20 some years I have known Stanislaus County Supervisor Dick Monteith, we have agreed on most issues; however, where we have not agreed he has been frank and earnest about his actions. That’s the beauty of a man like Dick Monteith – he knows what he believes and is willing to defend those beliefs. He does not put his finger in the air to test the political winds.

Dick Monteith has the breadth of experience, knowledge and force of personality to produce sound economic and fiscal policies for our county. As he has said many times: “We must pursue county policies that preserve and create jobs, jobs and more jobs but at the same time preserve precious farmland for our children and grandchildren.”

I urge you to cast your vote for Dick Monteith, Supervisor District 4.
