As the El Dorado Hills fire chief, Brian Veerkamp has extensive experience working with the Planning Department, the public and elected officials. Add his experience on the Camino School Board and his leadership role as president of the School Board and community involvement; he has the experience needed to help the citizens of District 3 to find solutions to their problems.
Brian Veerkamp’s involvement in the community (including Kiwanis), both on the job and off the job, helps him understand the issues and frustrations the public has dealing with government to grow and build our community and make El Dorado County a better place to live. Brian’s family has been a member of this community for generations, giving him a historical prospective into what makes the community tick and understands what solutions work.
Contrary to public perception the Board of Supervisors only has discretion over less than 10 percent of the County budget, with over 90 percent originating from federal and state sources with multiple strings attached. Brian understands this process and its limitations. District 3 needs a representative that knows how government functions, the planning process, the General Plan, zoning ordinances, how they impact our roads, communities, agriculture and our “Quality of Life.” Brian Veerkamp has the experience to start representing us on day one, not spend his first year in training and learning the office.
