Is supervisor Lois Wakimoto pro life or pro GMO, pollution, sickness and death?

My email to supervisor Wakimoto:

Dear Supervisor Wakimoto,

I’m fighting for the health and lives of the American people and I was not happy to see you appointed to the BOS as I’m very aware of the Wakimoto GMO farming and pollution of our food supply, drinking water and air with cancer and all sorts of illness causing pesticides and herbicides. I’ve publicly expressed my frustration with your appointment and today Steven Robinson wrote at https://www.facebook.com/groups/640301882835314/permalink/711038822428286/:

> Lois is divorced from the Wakimoto Family Farm. That’s a cheap shot

I would LOVE to apologize to you and call you an ally in my fight for clean food, air and water.

I had read your BOS bio and it looks like you have been very active in farming and lobbying. Which side are you on?

Sincerely,

Christine Baker

County administrator Hendrix supports sales tax increase for ROADS!

Just when I thought I’d seen it all …

According to the Kingman Miner, Hendrix states that the County CAN improve our awful dirt roads, but we don’t have the funds.
https://kdminer.com/news/2017/oct/13/water-critical-issue-kingman/

• A quarter-cent increase in the sales tax is an “extremely powerful tool,” generating about $6 million a year, the county administrator mentioned. It was used to build the county administration office, the county jail and the sheriff’s office. And it would go a long way toward maintaining more than 2,000 miles of county roads, of which about 1,200 miles are unpaved. …

That’s contrary to Supervisor Jean Bishop’s statement right here last year:

8/18/16 Meadview meeting: how to get the dirt roads fixed

FROM SUPERVISOR JEAN BISHOP:

The July floods constituted a historic storm event. The rain measured at our weather station near Diamond Bar Road and Pierce Ferry Road was the highest ever recorded since the station was installed and was actually greater than a 100 year storm (a 100-year storm is a storm that has a one percent chance of occurrence in any given year).

The storms took a terrible toll on the roads. Unfortunately, most of the roads in Lake Mead City are not maintained by the County. And, for the County to accept them for maintenance, they would need to first be brought up to County Standards by those wishing the roads to be maintained. (Not by the County per ARS 28-6705)

28-6705. Public road and street maintenance ….

Who is lying?

I never believed that Mohave County was LEGALLY prevented from providing emergency aide to its rural residents and to clear the roads so that emergency vehicles could transport patients.

I emailed this link to Supervisor Bishop for clarification.

Supervisor Jean Bishop KILLED the funding needed for Sheriff Schuster

The Meadview Morons got their way, once again.

The BOS meeting was riveting – literally.

My nose was almost touching my notebook screen because the volume was so low and I didn’t have external speakers with me.  One budget after the other got voted down as Hildy Angius (Bullhead) refused to vote for the property tax increase proposed by Jean Bishop.

“Our” Supervisor Bishop REFUSED to utilize the many MILLIONS of dollars in EXCESS reserves.

They finally agreed to utilize some of that excess money and to give NO additional funds to the sheriff.

Next time Bishop comes to Meadview, you should RUN HER OUT OF TOWN!

And next time your stuff is stolen, send Jean Bishop a thank you card.
