EDITOR:

The EID races for District 2 and District 4 this year seem to be a battle of philosophies for the future of our county. Interestingly, candidates Coco and Englefield have support from a very diverse base of the agricultural, residential, environmental and construction community. This is not an easy feat in this day and age.

I cannot speak to the interests of others in regard to these candidates, but when 50-plus farmers gather in the middle of harvest in support of Dr. Coco and Rich Englefield (and their views of water rights and common-sense approaches), I am impressed. This is exactly what happened two weeks ago.

In the mind of this farmer, our rural and agricultural environment is at stake in this election. And it’s now in the hands of the people of EID’s District 2 and District 4.

    Thank you, Paul. I'm troubled over the scarcity of farmers in division 2 and 4. I suspect that those voters are very susceptible and vulnerable to the sweet call for lower rates, "fairer rates" on the backs of farmers. You may be screwed.

    Very good Paul. I’ve followed El Dorado County water issues and EID very closely for over 20 years. I’ve witnessed the ups and downs of the EID Board and the resultant times of good and fallout. As you mention, this election seems to be pivotal to protect El Dorado County’s rural and agricultural nature. Having grown up in El Dorado County and wishing to see the rural and agricultural communities continue, I fully support Coco and Englefield for EID District 2 and District 4.

    Are you serious Paul? What the heck does Dr. Coco know about EID and water for our county? If he runs EID as bad as he was at doctoring the people of El Dorado County are in for trouble........our family has already voted and it is not for Dr. Coco.......
