My role of District 1 supervisor is to represent the people and their best interests given the law and the spirit of the law and utilizing the overall community’s input, needs, best interests and concerns. This has challenges because not everyone has the same opinions on all matters. District 1 includes the vast majority of El Dorado Hills and a small part of Cameron Park west.
One of my favorite parts of my job as supervisor is the opportunity to meet all the amazing people and talent found in District 1. The deep honor I have of representing the intelligent and passionate people who work hard to make District 1 a better place to live for all is a job I take very seriously. One of the most challenging parts of my job is to fully understand all sides of an issue — legally, fiscally, culturally and emotionally —and how that impacts this beautiful county we call home. The responsibility is both an honor and at times can be very humbling, but when it comes time to make a decision I can be counted on to do just that. I always attempt to explain my thought process to the public and I am always available to meet or talk with people.
District 1 is in very good shape, is a gem in the state and we are very fortunate to live here. We’ve made great progress with getting the Senior Day Care center in El Dorado Hills. I am also very committed to trying to get some parks and ball fields built in the community but this takes some coordination amongst different entities. I am a big proponent of responsible growth and development.
One of the reasons I ran for District 1 supervisor was because I want to make our community and the county a better place to live and play. I am very passionate about District 1 and plan on being here for many years. One day our children and the children of the community will, in part, inherit the community and we have to be cognizant that things we do now will have an impact on them. Many of the things we do as a county have very long-term and in some cases permanent effects on the community and these must be well thought out.
