New Solano County board members set to take office

A new year in Solano County means a change up of sorts at the county government level.

Tuesday, a swearing in will be held for three to take their posts on the Solano County Board of Supervisors. Supervisor Linda Seifert, who represents District 2, was re-elected to another four-year term and will be sworn in by state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Solano.

Recently elected District 1 Supervisor Erin Hannigan also will be sworn in along with Skip Thomson who beat incumbent Mike Reagan for the post to represent District 5. Hannigan, a former Vallejo city council member, will succeed Barbara Kondylis.

Thomson will return to the board after serving from 1992 to 2002. He chose not to finish his third term.

As he was cleaning out the rest of his office last week, Reagan said he gladly served the public for his two terms, and believes the county has a bright future.

"We're really well positioned," Reagan said. "We've been doing the ground work to be able to take advantage of the opportunities in the better economy."

He said the housing and business markets, although still not fully recovered, are on the right path.

Reagan said he has plans as a consultant after leaving the board, but will keep an eye on county issues.

"I'll stay engaged," Reagan said. "The county has tremendously talented staff that do very important work. It's a good crew that does nice collaborative work."

Thomson said the more than eight years it's been since he's served on the board has done him well to listen to the public and hear their concerns.

Now, he's looking forward to building relationships with the new board, the staff and the public.

"I believe we'll start off on the right foot," Thomson said. "I'm hoping this board can work together. We won't agree on everything, but we can respectfully disagree."

recent board mambers are aidding/abetting HSUS TERRORISM policy!
Rice and beans anyone

According to a new report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the livestock sector generates more greenhouse gas emissions as measured in CO2 equivalent --18 percent--than transport. It is also a major source of land and water degradation."

That statement got a tremendous amount of traction until Frank Mitloehner, Ph.D., from the University of California, Davis said, "These statements are not accurate, yet their wide distribution through news media have put us on the wrong path toward solutions."

He looked the model created by the United Nations and clearly demonstrated that their researchers presented false information. Within hours of Mitloehner's announcement, Pierre Gerber, a policy officer with the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization and one of the primary investigators, told the BBC that he accepted Mitloehner's criticism.

"I must say honestly that he has a point--we factored in everything for meat emissions, and we didn't do the same thing with transport."

So I clearly see now that we not only have a plethora of individuals stacked all throughout the Obama administration with ties to HSUS but it goes much farther than that. The UN's environmental initiatives, led by Maurice Strong and Jan Hartke, are guiding the ship for HSUS and have been attempting to move people away from the consumption of milk, meat and eggs.

Incidentally, Strong resigned from the UN and moved to China while under scrutiny for a suspicious $1 million payment that appeared to be tied to UN's corrupt "oil for food" program.

Strong now serves as chairman of the China Carbon Corporation and vice-chairman of the Chicago Climate Exchange. He states that his colleague, the president of China Carbon Corporation, "pioneered the development of emissions trading by the United Nations."

So back to my original statement that HSUS is a bunch of "human haters." Think of it this way: If you always target food and energy production in the name of animal welfare or preserving endangered species or protecting the environment, who is it that will suffer if this group wins globally? Yes, it is mankind because HSUS is working to make it harder and more expensive than ever for human beings to be able to secure the essentials of life--food, fiber, fuel and pharmaceuticals.

Or perhaps HSUS is simply in cahoots with the Chinese government to finally cripple the United States at the core and return to their position as the world power! Rice and beans anyone?
