Yup, this month we went political, getting a temperature check on how folks are feeling in advance of November’s general election. Happily, the vibes are pretty positive.
MELINDA BROWN, Verdi
Owner at Mo, Jo & Zoe
Positive because I think people have now woken up and realized their vote counts and they want change. They’re not willing to just sit back and say ‘my vote doesn’t matter’. They want to see something different happen because I think it’s gotten a little bit crazy.

I don’t like to get into it here. I’m miffed. If Trump can get rid of this virus, I’m voting for him. But he already messed that up.
COLEMAN BELARDI, Glenshire
Sales at Sweets
I guess it’s positive because anything would be better than the last four years.
JESS STEINFELD, Truckee
Assistant at Bespoke/Atelier
I have a positive outlook because I’m Australian and I’m a citizen. For the first time I can vote. I’m feeling positive because I can affect a change and at least have some sort of participation.
SUZANNE STEIGER, Sierra Meadows
Shopkeeper at Bespoke
I have a positive outlook on the election this year. I think all the controversy has really stirred up a lot of feelings and making a lot of people take action on those feelings. It’s going to be a great election.
