County Supervisor Harriett Wieder cries out that "few average citizens arrange a house rental by personally calling a building company president," as supervisor Bruce Nestande did. "That's blatant, and I would not touch what he did with a 10-foot pole," she said.
Supervisor Ralph B. Clark said he "would never mix his personal life with the people he has got to do business with."
Supervisor Thomas F. Riley says about the Nestande affair: "I am always conscious of this type of thing. I try to be careful who I do business with, because this 'Nestande' thing could happen to anyone in politics, if they are not careful."
I do not condone his actions, someone should have wised him up on possible repercussions, but I do not believe the general public is going to think any less of Bruce Nestande after all of this attention.
