I have a name sake in Grass Valley. I’ve know about Ruth for years. Long before I was in the public eye and involved with the business community in Nevada County, she received my email. Recently I get comments directed my way for things she is doing. We’ve never met.
Ruth has come under some scrutiny in the last week in her position as the president of the Nevada County League of Women Voters. While I am involved in many activities, I am not the president of the League of Women Voters.
I have already been mistaken for her twice this week. I am sympathetic to the public attention she is dealing with. But pass it on: same name, different person.
