Public ire continues over supervisor's comment about tuning out air activists

More than 100 marchers gathered in Fresno and Bakersfield on Thursday to demand the resignation of Merced County Supervisor Mike Nelson from a local air quality board. Nelson, who serves as Merced County's representative to the air board, said he sometimes "tunes out" when environmental activists speak before the board because he thinks they don't tell the truth.
