Nevada County Supervisor Ed Scofield should be recalled because he has repeatedly failed to represent Nevada County citizens & businesses.
- Failed to uphold his oath of office to defend Constitution of the United States and the State of California.
- Failed to protect the citizens of Nevada County or demand review of 30-day emergency orders that enforced a shutdown of local schools and businesses for 455 days.
- Failed to protect students and families by seeking out against school shutdowns, despite overwhelming scientific evidence and medical recommendations that closing schools was not only unnecessary, but harmful to children.
- Voted against the Healthy Community Resolution, which asked the Governor consider local conditions to justify shut-down orders of schools, restaurants, parks, and private businesses.
- Ignored lawful demands from citizens to release public informationon Coronavirus relief fund spending as required by the California Public Records Act.
- Misspent millions of Coronavirus relief funds (CARES Act) on county staff rather than providing environmental relief, paying off unfunded pension liabilities, or providing support for small businesses and those hardest hit by the pandemic shutdown.
- Mismanaged County Public Employee Pension Fund, leaving a unfunded liability of more than $222 Million that could result in cuts to environmental programs in the county.
