Experience matters

By From page A5 | October 10, 2012


In my six-plus years as your Placerville City Councilman and serving on numerous committees and boards at local and state levels, I know that experience is all important when considering any candidate for any political office. Important decisions that affect your family, your business or your job as well as the services and programs available in your local community are made by your local officials. Background in reading, researching, asking the right questions in order to get the right answers on issues that facilitate effective decisions in other arenas of a candidate’s life, allows him to bring that value to the table of political service from day one. Adversely, lack of experience can seriously slow that decision-making process and clog the wheels of progress that will, again, affect you.

With that in mind, it is my firm belief that Brian Veerkamp is the best choice to represent the citizens of this county. Brian has worked with and managed large budgets and personnel with his work at the El Dorado Hills Fire District, the El Dorado County JPA (our Ambulance District) and as a member of the Board of the Camino School District. He was part of the committee that consolidated several fire districts that became the El Dorado County Fire District which has meant more economical, more efficient fire protection for all of us.

His commitment to community service is outstanding as shown by his many years of involvement in service clubs such as Kiwanis and Rotary, as well as his service on the Board of Directors of the Marshall Hospital Foundation.

I encourage you to take the time to visit Brian’s Website at to see where he stands and then vote for experience — vote Brian Veerkamp, Supervisor, District 3.
