I grew up in Camino and Pollock Pines. My husband and I raised our family in Shingle Springs. Like you, I treasure El Dorado County as my home. That is why I’m running for Supervisor: to protect our home from current leaders whose actions threaten our quality of life with urbanization and higher taxes. We do not want Rancho Cordova density, or Orange County traffic. For this reason, I have been working with community groups, such as the Georgetown Preservation Society, Shingle Springs Community Alliance, and Rural Communities United, to ensure orderly development that we, the voters, approved in our General Plan to protect our rural quality of life.
I acknowledge that our county is facing tough decisions regarding growth and all of the issues that come with it. However, I will not make far-fetched campaign promises or accept big developer money to win, because my priority as a Supervisor will be to earn your trust by delivering. As Supervisor, I will protect your paycheck by making sure your tax dollars do real work, paying for road maintenance and public safety. We need leaders who listen to the public, not big-moneyed special interests.
I will work for you.
