CHARLIE BROWN
RETURNS TO PLACER COUNTY


Two-time Congressional Candidate Charlie Brown is BACK in Placer County. Charlie ran in both 2006 and 2008 against Congressman John Doolittle and Tom McClintock respectively. He was within a few hundred votes from winning the 2008 race. In 2009 Charlie and his wife moved to Washington DC where he received a job with the Department of Homeland Security. Placer County Democratic Central Committee member Glenda Wertenberger interviewed Charlie back on January 19th, 2015. The following are excerpts from the interview. When asked about being back in Placer County, Charlie responded with, “I'm looking forward to talking to some more people now.  We're starting to get out and about a little more.  I was disappointed in the way the redistricting went, the way they split up the county.  Being in Washington DC, the politics in the District of Columbia are a disaster.  I feel overall relatively good about the City of Roseville, the City Council members, the Placer County Supervisors.  It's just good to be back here. (laughing).”
 
When asked about some of the major problems going on in our country, Charlie Brown had this to say about the treatment of our Veterans, “It’s this whole crazy thing of, there’s always plenty of money to fight a war, but not enough money to take care of the Veterans when they come home.  You know, they want to offset it somehow or something…And the amputees get a lot of the publicity, and they deserve a lot of help.  But people need to realize that the amputees are actually a very, very small percentage. That the majority of the Veterans that need medical care and psychiatric care for PTSD and other injuries, most of the injuries don’t show.  So it’s very easy with the amputees to say, oh there’s a veteran, they need help.  And yet, for the vast majority their wounds aren’t visible.  And they aren’t getting the help they need.  You know, the VA has certainly been in the newspaper enough.  Now I’ve gotten very good medical care through the VA.  I went up to the VA clinic in Auburn, and got excellent care there.  But, you know, there are so many people that haven’t gotten the care they need.  The system’s overwhelmed, they didn’t plan ahead to be ready for this.”

Openly LGBT Politician, One of the Longest Serving
 
November 2014 marked the 25th year that local Democrat, Gary Miller has been serving as an elected official in the Placer County area. Gary not only of the longest serving elected officials in Placer County, but he is also, one of the longest serving openly LGBT elected official in the United States. According to Gary Miller's calculations, he is the second longest serving, after Congressman Barney Frank. With Congressman Frank's retirement in 2013, Gary may be the longest serving openly LGBT politician currently in office. 

In December 2014, Chris Peer a writer for Outword Magazine, a local LGBT Magazine wrote an article about Gary Miller's service to our area. Gary Miller was first elected in 1987 to the Robla School Board, "beating two incumbents and fighting a homophobic campaign against him." He went on to serve the Robla School District until 2006 when he moved to Roseville. Back in 2008 he threw his name into the Roseville City School Board race and won, "...beating an incumbent and becoming the first openly gay person to win an election in Placer County, one of the most conservative counties in the state." He has served on the board since then and his current term is up in 2016.
