I met Yolanda a year ago and have been smitten ever since. I admit to not following her (or any other) Grass Valley Council member’s track record. I just appreciate Yolanda and her unrelenting focus on transparency and on “doing the right thing.”

That said, Yolanda got nailed for an unwitting Brown Act infraction.  While the DA isn’t pursuing, community members are still uncovering possible FOI infractions. That said, I still admire this young woman, learning lessons the hard way and showing a lot of grace. Here is what Yolanda had to say recently.
