The El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee announced its endorsement for District One Supervisor, John Knight, and District Two Supervisor, Ray Nutting. The PAC voted not to endorse a candidate for District Three at this time.

The criteria for endorsing a candidate begins with who is most closely aligned with the Chamber of Commerce mission statement.

The County Chamber is a leading business organization for promoting economic strength and serving as a unified voice of business throughout the county. As one of the largest Chambers in the region, it brings business interests to the forefront of civic and community leaders’ agendas, inspiring economic development projects, important public policy issues and business growth.

Its mission statement reads, “To advocate for and promote a strong, healthy and diverse business community to preserve and strengthen the quality of life in El Dorado County.”

    Supervisor Knight has not earned the right to a second term. He is completely unresponsive and refuses to meet citizens regarding county issues. I called his office repeatedly asking to meet with him. He is a COUNTY supervisor. Yes, he’s elected by residents of El Dorado Hills but his vote effects the whole county — and he’s completely clueless. Or is it that he’s bought and paid for by government union employees and doesn't need to meet with citizens? Regardless, he fails to represent El Dorado County citizens and does NOT get my vote.

    A wise populace will be well represented if they were to elect returning veterans to our offices of public trust and sweep out the cronies, the Good Ol' Boys and fools that make up this county and state. I say when you have worn your countries uniform and placed your life on the line you will make the right choice of your countries interest of honor and truth against greed and corruption most of the time. For every politician who has never served or placed thier lives for their country ahead of their gain, who hides behind a title, or a robe, or a name, and one who demands our respect and our sacred vote, I say earn it.

    Unfortunately, pro-business means anti-neighborhood. Have you ever been to a Board of Supervisors meeting? Very disheartening to see how the Supervisors ignore their citizens and listen to the developers. The only time my neighborhood has had our concerns seriously considered is when we showed up with an attorney. We need to have representatives that can find a balance between economic growth and our rural community. It's a tough job, but you must remember that people move to El Dorado County because they want to live in a rural community, not a city. If anyone feels the need to have a hotel, grocery store and gas station on every corner, they should be reminded that they can move to Folsom. So choose your candidates carefully and remember to vote!

    I want to know which members of the Board of Supervisors voted for the Creekside Project in front of Herbert Green School. They will not be receiving my families votes nor anyone I have an opportunity to speak to about this matter. Where can I find their voting record?
