Both initiatives should be on the ballot

EDITOR: I was disheartened to read in Village Life (Aug. 6) of the decision of the Board of Supervisors to delay “Initiative to Reinstate Measure Y,” effectively blocking it from the November ballot. I think this was a mistake on several levels. I believe that the competing initiative “Fix Highway 50 Traffic First/ Keep Us […]

Coco flip-flops at EID

EDITOR: Director Dale Coco said in February that the Faux Farm (Fake Farm) issue had to be cleaned up and reformed because it was unfair to other EID ratepayers. Instead, he flip-flopped and went back on his own promises, yet again. He’s been doing that a lot in his short time at EID (for example, […]

EID water rate misrepresentation

EDITOR: EID’s water rate subsidy to small farmers is much greater than previously represented to the EID board and public by General Manager Jim Abercrombie. On April 25, 2014, and again on June 23, 2014, Abercrombie represented to the EID board and public that small farm rate recipients pay $514 per acre foot of EID […]

I guess that statement meant as much to him as his promise […]

Betrayed by Coco

EDITOR: I campaigned for EID board member Dale Coco because I believed he would follow through on what he promised — that is to “focus on real solutions to the $370 million debt and stop runaway rate increases.” However, Dr. Coco voted yes with the other directors while Alan Day and Greg Prada voted no on a shaky […]

Rocks on EDH Blvd.

EDITOR: I have lived in El Dorado Hills for 40 years and in that time I have never seen the rocks with such a blatant political statement as the “Impeach Obama” which I saw. Mostly the rocks are decorated for celebrations: birthdays, graduations, school teams, veteran homecomings and, yes, sad occasions too. I certainly hope this […]
