EDITOR:

Decisions, decisions, decisions. What does it take to get your vote? Here’s what it takes to get mine. It takes a person with experience, integrity and compassion. I believe I have found that person running for Supervisor District 3, Brian Veerkamp.

Public service is one of Brian’s greatest gifts. Besides being a professional part of fire protection in El Dorado County, serving as both a fireman and the El Dorado Hills fire chief, Brian has also has given selflessly as a member of the Camino School’s Board of Trustees from 1996 to 2010. For eight of those years he served as president which required working with six unique superintendents/principals, encouraging new board members to receive Governance training, leading strategic planning sessions and collaborating with all the various stakeholders in the school community to help make Camino School the best it can be.

Brian accomplished all these things while being faced with constant budgetary and enrollment declines. He chose, however, not to do these things alone. Another of his strengths is the ability to involve others in finding the needed solutions. Brian included the staff and administration of Camino School, the El Dorado County Board of Education, members of the Camino Community as well as his business associates and family members to keep programs alive and facilities operating during this time of economic depression. In addition to this involvement of others, Brian led people in keeping a clear focus on what was best for the children. I feel he has shown great compassion and worked extremely hard to help us get our little school ready for the great success we are currently experiencing.

What he has done for Camino, he can do for El Dorado County as well. Experience, integrity and compassion … I urge you to vote for Brian Veerkamp in November.
