Vote for Joe Harn

EDITOR: We strongly endorse Joe Harn’s reelection as our county Auditor-Controller. Joe Harn has worked quietly to get a lot of things done throughout the county, including El Dorado Hills. There probably wouldn’t be an El Dorado Hills Library or Senior Center if wasn’t for Joe’s hard work and leadership. Construction wouldn’t be under way […]
