Letters to the editor: ‘Dual’ commissioner can’t keep facts straight

‘Dual’ commissioner can’t keep facts straight While seeking support from the county commission for the Clovis Affordable Housing Plan, Mayor Gayla Brumfield and county/city commissioner Bobby Sandoval were able to clear up several misconceptions about the plan.

Letters to the editor: Brumfield’s behavior tyrannical

Brumfield’s behavior tyrannical Gayla Brumfield’s comments in the May 11 edition of the CNJ regarding the petition filed for a vote on the affordable housing ordinance were, at the very least, despicable.
