Sue Taylor and Craig Schmidt to run for EID Board this November

Sue Taylor and Craig Schmidt to run for EID Board this November

Sue Taylor and Craig Schmidt are both are officially running for the EID Board of Directors. Sue is running in our DIV 1(Pollock Pines, Camino and Diamond Springs) to oppose and hopefully FINALLY replace George Osborne who has never really worked to represent the ratepayers of this District. Sue has a long history of working to retain the area rural character of our area. Craig Schmidt is a fiscal conservative and is running to replace Raffety in DIV 3 (Placerville, Coloma) who has broken all of his promises by continuing to rubber stamp approve nearly all proposed projects leading to ongoing rate hikes, including a 17% increase next year alone. Congrats to Alan Day who is running unopposed and will remain the DIV 5 director. So much can finally happen with a board majority that will put current ratepayer interests first and we are really excited about it. Tell your friends. Your vote in November couldn’t be any more important to rein in EID’s outrageous spending designed to support the developers in our county. SAVE THE CANAL needs your vote.

See for yourself..check out our 3 minute long video….oh and we won first place too, exercising our first amendment rights…Thank you Rotary! Enjoy…and help us Save the Canal!

The El Dorado Canal is living history and stands as a testament to the American independence, determination, and ingenuity that we still celebrate today. Originally built in the gold rush era, the canal still serves our community today; delivering water to our towns, supporting our local agriculture, providing a fire fighting resource, creating wildlife habitat and a source of beauty to nature’s wonderland. It remains as an integral part of the rich and unique history of Pollock Pines and the fabric of our shared California heritage. Save the Canal invites you to join us in a celebration of our past and the enduring American spirit, as we work to protect this historical landmark.
