We all agree that California has a serious issue now with our
vegetation management plans. In 2008, the State placed El Dorado
County, parts of Cameron Park, and Placerville in High Fire Hazard
areas. The past few years of game-changing fires have ravaged
similar communities like ours. Since the tragedy of Paradise and
the Camp Fire, the vegetation plan has been updated. The Board of
Supervisors needs to be pro-active, rather than re-active in
working with our communities with their safety and evacuation
plans. Not doing this leaves our families and our elderly
residents in serious jeopardy.
When the next Fire disaster happens, we need to keep our
community together, all of us need to have a plan, as a County.
I am a member of the Fire and Emergency Services Committee. In
those discussions, I have gleaned the following priorities for
· El Dorado County needs a reliable alert system with
metrics built in so that elected officials, and the public,
could know how many households are registered.
· Home hardening - instituting safety recommendations on
gutter guards, vent screens, etc. to prevent flying embers
from infecting other structures. I want to work with County
businesses to provide home hardening packages and educate
· For renters, those who can’t afford to harden their
homes and struggling businesses, we need to find a way to help
them urgently. The State has made some home hardening statutes
but has failed to fund them. I’d like to find a way and spread
the safety – for the sake of community.
El Dorado County needs a strategic long-term plan to improve
its roads and work with stakeholders to update, modify and execute
that plan. Better roads are critical for our economy, safety, and
quality of life.
By establishing its priorities and creating public and private
partnerships, we can be prepared for any and all State and Federal
funding opportunities when available. Creating special districts
to look at a long-term cost sharing programs at some of the remote
in-and-out roads is necessary, so as long as safety is not
Already an impressive element of the County, El Dorado County
Transit should be able to expand its Dial-a-Ride system for
additional users, including commuter services to the Bay Area,
where thousands of County residents work.
I can accept the responsibilities as a Board of Supervisor at
the very beginning, using my degree in Regional Development along
with my 18 years working in public agencies and community advisory
