The recent Sand Fire demonstrated some huge problems in El Dorado County. So far as I can tell, only one supervisor candidate is talking about a solution.
Chris Amaral recently noted that areas of the county not only lack high-speed Internet connection, but lack cell service. How are we supposed to let people know their lives are in danger when there is no way to reach them? He has proposed ensuring all areas of the county have cell service, and once elected will make countywide broadband access one of his highest priorities.
Chris strikes me as a pragmatist, someone from the private sector who can streamline county government, making it more efficient and responsive to us. He has my vote on Sept. 9 for District 2 supervisor.
