I would like to take a moment and express my support of Trisha Wilkins, who is a candidate for the Placerville City Council. Over the course of the past year I have gotten to know Trisha by being involved in mutual community and political activities. I have found Trisha to be very hardworking, thoughtful and compassionate. She takes the time to listen to city residents about their hopes and dreams for Placerville.
One aspect about Trisha that I admire is that if she doesn’t know the answer to something she will do the research and find the answer. This differs from many involved in politics, who pretend they have all the answers. What I like most about her campaign platform is her desire to strengthen Placerville’s small business community and ensure the safety of its residents. Trisha has no personal agenda, other than making the city an even better place to live. She is a breath of fresh air, and would be a definite bright spot in local politics.
