Seventh generation rancher and county Ag Commission member Chuck Bacchi said, “I like a candidate who is qualified, knowledgeable and has a passion to do the right thing. Michael has an impressive business background and has used that experience to examine the major issues facing our rural communities. His learning curve is complete. His grasp of important rural issues will make him a great county supervisor.”
Other leaders also followed Bacchi in their support for Ranalli. “Michael Ranalli is a proven leader who is committed to protecting our rural quality of life in El Dorado County,” said Maryann Argyres, past president of the El Dorado County Farm Trails. “He brings experience to the county at a critical time.”
“Agriculture needs a leader like Michael Ranalli. Michael would be an outstanding voice for our rural county in not only preserving and protecting our family farms, but in driving policies that advance agriculture and economic development into the next generation,” said Christa Campbell of Rainbow Orchards.
Fourteen other agriculture leaders have also endorsed Ranalli.
