I served Curry County as a Commissioner from 2009 through 2013. Controlling spending was my biggest responsibility, as well as seeking additional revenue sources to keep the county solvent.  I am very disappointed and puzzled to hear current Commissioner Gold, up for re-election, continually state, "I am a fiscal conservative."  Actions speak louder than words, as the exact opposite is true.  I encourage voters to do their research, as there has been incredible waste and enormous ill-advised spending that Sue Gold has directly participated in the four years she has been in office.  Also, she is receiving a full salary, while working part time. Didn't she say in 2016, she would accept a salary of $10,000 per year?  In my view this is an example of hypocrisy and poor judgement, not good attributes of an elected official.  Please vote for John Herzog, a community leader, who has demonstrated honesty and integrity and will work for our interests as County Commissioner.
