Union investment pays off

EDITOR: In the last two El Dorado Hills Fire Board elections, the firefighters’ union has paid 100 percent of the re-election costs for John Hidahl, Jim Hartley and Barbara Winn’s campaigns ($31,538).

Beth Gaines: 3 strikes and you’re out

EDITOR: There have been three candidate forums where the four other District 1 supervisor candidates in El Dorado Hills showed up and gave answers and had a lively debate. Beth Gaines was a no-show all three times. She is either cowardly or arrogant; either way she does not deserve your vote. On top of that […]

Dismal 1 percent offer

EDITOR: Buckeye Union School District is a district of excellence. Despite whatever outcome occurs with our current labor dispute, we will continue to do our jobs with pride and devotion.

The right thing to do

EDITOR: In politics, as in life, we don’t often have the chance to do the right thing, to right a wrong, to make the principled choice. This May, when you receive your mail-in ballot for the June 7 election, is one of those times. I urge you to vote yes on El Dorado County Measures E & […]
