Letter to the Editor

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 […]

The Region Builders initiative is a scam

Another El Dorado initiative was recently filed by Region Builders, a Sacramento-based commercial developers group. A goal of Region Builders is to lower road improvement fees for their commercial development projects. We all pay state gasoline and fuel taxes. Every year, the “State” returns $9 million of these funds to El Dorado County for local […]

Utter nonsense

EDITOR: Village Life’s coverage of last week’s town hall meeting reflects the reasons why I resigned from EDH APAC (last) week. APAC and the county have demonstrated ignorance, prejudice and denial of factual reality that can easily be checked by anyone. One point is that the Mather Master Plan reduces the airport’s cargo capacity, with the single […]
