EID board majority cut costs

EDITOR: Alan Day wrote strongly recently about his objections to an EID board action, accepting updates to EID’s agreement with its employees. What he didn’t say is that the updates decrease EID’s costs and did not involve merit raises. He argued that existence of merit raises was a reason to avoid the cost-cutting actions that […]

Lack of LGBT support in our community

EDITOR: As an openly queer student in El Dorado Hills, I have first handedly experienced the harassment from fellow peers and community members. Understanding the fact that sexual orientation is an avoidable topic, I find it hard to locate any support throughout our community. There are many students who feel the same way and live […]

Although he was present for the February 25 EID Board meeting, this self-proclaimed “ratepayer advocate” seems less interested in facts than in political spin.

Get your EID facts right

EDITOR: Bob Luca’s letter is misinformed and wrong. You would think that a District Attorney’s investigator would have more interest in the facts — especially when he’s accusing EID’s board of being “out of touch.” As the Mountain Democrat accurately reported, on Feb. 25 the EID board and employee association agreed to implement the Public […]

Fire board, SRA fee and veterans

EDITOR: Feb. 21, the 692nd meeting of the El Dorado Hills Fire Board was different. While there were 35 chairs for the public this night only four or five were filled by citizens not employed or otherwise linked to the department. While the quantity of citizens was lacking the quality was not. Bill Sturge appeared […]
