2020 was an unprecedented year! From a global pandemic, to massive social unrest and probably the most contentious election in modern history, we are all ecstatic to close the door on 2020. Fortunately, a new year brings a fresh start emboldened with renewed hope.

Bring it on!

As we embark on 2021, it my pleasure to move into the role as your District 3 Supervisor.  Thank you for entrusting me with our beloved county.  I am looking forward to collaborating with you to address our challenges head-on while boldly and optimistically seeking new opportunities to enrich our county.

As we look to the year stretching ahead of us, I am inspired by the words of Edith Lovejoy Pierce:

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

And so we begin. Happy New Year.

Swearing In

It was a privilege to be sworn into office by Judge Kingsbury on January 4, 2021.  Unfortunately, it had to be on zoom, but this too shall pass.

I am delighted to represent you on the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors, and I am eager and ready to get started!



I would like to acknowledge and thank former District 3 Supervisor Brian Veerkamp for his devoted  service on the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor Veerkamp, along with his dedicated assistant Kathy Witherow, have made a meaningful difference in our community.  During Supervisor Veerkamp's two terms in office, he was instrumental in ...

  • Developing a county-wide Strategic Plan which continues to form the framework for a sound decision-making process.
  • Instituting a critical Vegetation Management Ordinance.
  • Aligning productive strategies to deal with homelessness with available funding.
  • Collaborating on creative solutions to address harvest traffic congestion.
  • Addressing facilities maintenance, including a new Public Safety facility and Animal Shelter.
  • Serving faithfully on numerous boards and commissions which included a year as the chairman of SACOG (Sacramento Area Council of Governments).

I wish Brian all the best as he continues his legacy of service on behalf of our community on the EID Board and the Emergency Services JPA.
