EDITOR:

Thank you to all five members of our El Dorado County Board of Supervisors (Ron Mikulaco, Ray Nutting, Brian Veerkamp, Ron Briggs and Norma Santiago) for their continuing support of our older county residents.

Recently the board voted to supplement funding cuts to Meals on Wheels brought on by the federal sequestration. The board also supported the development of a new Senior Day Care Center in the El Dorado Hills Senior Center.

It’s not easy for our county supervisors to prioritize spending with growing needs and less federal and state funding. Our El Dorado County Commission on Aging applauds the board, since we consider these two programs as high-priority needs for seniors and the larger community.

BRIAN P. REEVES
Chairman, Commission on Aging

    Meals on wheels is such an important program..up here in Pollock-where there is snow and ice-- some seniors cant get to the senior meal program--and rely on the volunteers to drive them the meals that they get. Senior lunch programs are so important...I keep wondering why some are not participating in the lunch program up here. Well kudos to the BOS--nice job!!!!!

    Superb! Now maybe the idiots can get that $5.6 million ERP system fiasco screw up software to track those meals from Board action to Delivery. Thank the taxpayers for More Government Cheese!

    Too bad these old people depend on the government so much. Why should the government be feeding these people? I know why, it's bribery it's what it is! Feed them and they will vote for you. Just another big government program to keep people dependent on the government for their survival.
