Sue Taylor’s resume

By
From page A5 | May 23, 2012 |

EDIOTR: There are many candidates running for Supervisor District 3. None of them comes close to having the wide range of experience that Sue Taylor has.

I met Sue Taylor two years ago. Her energy is amazing. I have not figured out when she sleeps. Some days she starts with the taxpayers meeting at 7 a.m. and ends at 8 p.m. at the Board of Supervisors meetings. City Council meetings have gone on until 11 p.m. on occasions.

I have been amazed at what Sue knows about the county and everything else it entails. She has been involved in many of these for up to five years, and has been fighting for our rural values like our independent, hard-working pioneer families had. Her dedication has been for the citizens of El Dorado County and the small local businesses in this county. Here is the list of Sue’s involvement in the community that I came up with: Board of Supervisors meetings; El Dorado County Taxpayers; Placerville City Council; Sacramento Area Council Of Governments; Economic Development Advisory Committee; Regulatory Reform Committee; Agricultural Commission; Planning Commissions, both City and County; Parks and Recreation Commission; Diamond Springs — El Dorado Advisory Committee meetings; El Dorado County Transportation Commission; Cemetery commission; El Dorado County Irrigation District; Camino Community Action Committee; Four Wheel Clubs; Folsom Planning and Commissioners meetings; Historic MUD Springs meetings in the town of El Dorado; and Court Commission.

Sue as a member of the Friends of Historic Hangtown worked in stopping the roundabout; she is currently a Cub Scout leader for 11-year-old boys; she worked for over 30 years training young women in wilderness survival and backpacking, taking trips lasting three to five days. Sue understands the County’s General Plan and processes, and understands the zoning changes that are currently being analyzed by the County — changes that will affect personal property rights of the citizens of this county. Sue is alarmed that zoning changes are being proposed that people are not aware of; these zoning changes could affect the homes and lands of many residents without their knowledge.

Sue understands what SACOG (Sacramento Area Council of Governments) represents and what it would like to see implemented for our county, along with the Metropolitan Transportation Plan. It includes forces telling us what to build and where — all tied to the promise of government incentives.

This is an example of Sue’s knowledge and experience. She understands land use principles, building codes, and regulations. She has, on numerous occasions, explained many of the changes to others using maps from the county or the city to help them understand the current zoning and proposed changes occurring in the County and the City.

She understands how EIRs (Environmental Impact Reports) and CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) are used before a project is approved and when they are needed. She understands the concept of mitigation and how it can be manipulated.

As an independent building designer, Sue provides work for local surveyors, engineers, contractors and sub-contractors, and these people buy from local suppliers. Sue is not sponsored by special interest groups. Campaign sponsors are public record for anyone who wants to check. She has helped with improvements to the Veterans building and the El Dorado Train Depot. Sue and her husband, Tim, purchased the Hangman’s Tree building to keep it from being demolished. The Taylors felt that the Hangman’s Tree, being the historic namesake of Old Hangtown, had to remain standing.

There is no other candidate running with the same experience or dedication to the citizens of this county. The only reason Sue has spent so much time and energy learning the ins and outs of our local government is her love for El Dorado County. No other reason.
