I am writing to endorse Brooke Laine for District 5 Supervisor. With a myriad of issues facing us, I sincerely believe she is the ideal candidate to navigate the tough decisions that need to be made in El Dorado County. Brooke has proven herself to be level-headed when negotiations get heated; her experience on the South Lake Tahoe City Council, as former South lake Tahoe Mayor and on the board of several organizations shows a commitment to serving our community. We need a representative who is actively involved and willing to dig in and do the work necessary. We need a voice of reason on our board, not a reactionary. We need someone who is consultative, not combative. We need a representative who will do her due diligence when diving into controversial and divisive issues that need to be resolved. We need a representative who will listen to all sides, and then make an informative decision that is for the greater good of all. As a business owner in Meyers, I am well aware of traffic concerns, snow removal, and vacation home rental controversies. Brooke is too. She has spent the last year meeting with local residents, business owners, city and county agency representatives to get a feel for issues that need to be addressed. She will not shy away from controversial issues; she will tackle them with professionalism and a commitment to doing what needs to be done.
