Experience, not politics

EDITOR: I prefer to vote for a candidate with experience, not a professional politician. For example, in the race for El Dorado County supervisor, District 1 in  El Dorado Hills, we have a candidate, John Hidahl, who has lived here for 38 years.

Thanks, DSA

EDITOR: With all the craziness involving police officers going on in the U.S., I would like to bring something positive to the conversation. I recently graduated from Valley Christian Academy in Roseville and heard that the Deputy Sheriffs Association in El Dorado County was giving out scholarships.
