What do you like most about Colusa County? It’s small towns, I’m not a fan of big city traffic, and the fact that everyone knows everyone builds a sort of sense of security, let’s you know people will help you if you need it

What would you like to change about Colusa County? I’d like to see there be more things for young people to do. The youth always have to go to Yuba if they want to socialize, if we had more activities here, it could save them the drive, and bring the local kids closer together and make more friends. Also keep them out of trouble.

If you could write a biography about someone local, who would it be and why? Probably Mike West, he’s a very popular member of our community and I’m sure he’d have an amazing story to tell

Where do you get your news? Usually via KCRA 3, though, I will pick up the newspaper If I wish to catch up on local news.
