Local petitions circulating

EDITOR:

I am writing to you in hope that you will publish my letter and help to clarify the confusion for local voters in regard to the local petitions circulating in El Dorado County.

Several local grassroots groups of concerned citizens have come together and researched the topics important to our county and developed “four important local initiatives” imperative to the future of El Dorado County. These initiatives are being circulated by local, non-paid volunteers for your signature.

To keep it simple they have color coded them. Here is an easy way to remember the correct petitions to sign: yellow is mellow, green is clean, purple is your royal right, and blue is cool.

For more information on these petitions, visit lvc-edc.org. The petition to avoid like the plague and not sign and is meant to deceive you is pink/white and what rhymes with pink? Stink. How appropriate is that? This petition is being circulated by handsomely paid high-pressure signature gatherers being paid by big developers from out of our county who are attempting to pass themselves off as El Dorado County Voters for Local Control. Their petition is called “Control Growth to Fix our Local Roads.” Nothing can be further from the truth. The only thing they care about is making more money at our expense.

I hope this helps everyone understand the issues, encourages more folks to take charge of your future, sign your petitions and get out and vote. And finally, with the required amount of local signatures needed by El Dorado County, these initiatives will be put on the ballot for your vote and approval in the upcoming election. The petitions that become law will be decided on by “We, the People of El Dorado County.” Thank you for your signature and vote.
