Farm Bureau endorses Englefield for EID

From page A6 | October 23, 2013 |

The El Dorado County Farm Bureau Board of Directors interviewed and reviewed candidates’ qualifications for the El Dorado Irrigation District Division 2 Board of Directors open seat and decided to endorse Richard Englefield.

“Richard Englefield has shown leadership while serving on the County Water Agency board and he will apply his long-term planning skills to the future needs of the district,” said Farm Bureau President Jim Davies.

The Farm Bureau’s endorsement went on to note that EID has tried to balance the needs of the district’s customers while implementing unfunded mandates imposed by federal and state agencies. Moreover, EID has painstakingly taken appropriate action to comply with the rate-setting requirements of Proposition 218. The bureau trusts that Englefield will listen to the concerns of agriculturists and others to understand the impact on all district customers of the financial and operational decisions that will be made.

“Rich understands the importance of pursuing additional water rights to protect the future interest of all constituents,” said Farm Bureau board member and grower Carolyn Mansfield. “He has strongly supported applying for increased water rights to serve the future needs of the county that will benefit the district’s customers.”

Englefield has lived in El Dorado County for 20 years and served as a volunteer on fire safe councils before serving on the Grizzly Flat Community Services District Board of Directors.

“Richard supported the Capital Improvements needed to upgrade and maintain the Grizzly Flat water system,” said Chuck Bacchi, Farm Bureau board member and owner of the Bacchi Ranch. “He brings that experience to the table.”

The El Dorado County Farm Bureau works to promote and protect farmers, ranchers, and foresters, and El Dorado County’s rural way of life on behalf of 1,200 member families countywide.
