Mountain Democrat: “Ranalli is our choice for District 4”
Mountain Democrat’s picks for the primary election,
By Penne Usher
Michael Ranalli for District 4 Supervisor
Incumbent Michael Ranalli, District 4 Supervisor, has in-depth understanding of the local regulatory environment and its impact on our rural community and that makes him the most qualified person to continue to represent taxpayers on the Board of Supervisors.
He is currently chairman of the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors and the County Transportation Commission. Additionally he is currently Vice-chair of the County Water Agency, Vice President of the Mountain Counties Water Resources Association, Vice-Chair of the Rural Counties’ Environmental Services Joint Powers Authority and Board Member of the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC).
As the county representative within the statewide Tree Mortality Task Force – a role that’s placed him in state and federal-level participation, Ranalli has gained a better understanding of the connections between forest health and watersheds.
He believes as we do that there needs to be a balance between growth, preservation of natural resources and commitment to a rural lifestyle in El Dorado County.
His decisions are based on what is best for his district and has demonstrated his allegiance to the Constitution, protecting private property rights while also fending off potential costly litigation for county taxpayers. He understands the challenges we face repairing our county roadways and sees this as a priority.
Ranalli is living up to his campaign promises, listens to his constituents and has proven a well-informed hard working Supervisor. He’s our choice for District 4 Supervisor.
