As long as all Supervisors can vote on matters "outside" their district; we will loose to the sand miners. El Monte Valley Sand Mining has majority opposition to the "County" notification process, by "property owners" within the Sphere of Influence, yet the Supervisors will go against us, as well as Cottonwood; in favor of money and power. If only the Supervisor for the project and district could vote on it, we could hold them accountable as "Representative", one and only; of their constituents.
