County Republican Party endorses Flesher for EID
The El Dorado County Republican Party announced the endorsement of Jake Flesher for El Dorado Irrigation District. Flesher is campaigning for the Board of Directors seat for District 4.
As an attorney and business owner, Flesher has had years of managing budgets. He has studied water rights issues for over 15 years and has seen the constant rate hikes passed on to the home owners in the community. With a primary focus of balancing the budget without raising fees on ratepayers or borrowing against the future, Flesher is the fiscally conservative candidate.
“Jake Flesher will bring a sense of fiscal responsibility which is needed at EID,” stated Chairman Dallas Sweeney. “Our organization supports his focus and efforts on reducing the burden on the ratepayer.”
Some Readers Respond:
Flesher said he understands the importance of water issues after working as a farmer in Kern County for a year before entering law school. Jake Flesher must be a quick study. He claims to have been a Westlands (Kern) farmer for a year in which time he learned about the importance of water to farmers. What did he learn? Did he learn that it was easier and more profitable to sell his water to Los Angeles? Was that his lesson?
He is a member of the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel and served as the Pacific Region Vice-President of that organization. I think I now understand how Jake came to be a Westlands "farmer" for ONE YEAR. - the railroad connection - rail roads are the biggest "farmers" in the central valley.
The National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel (NARTC) is a 59 year old organization made up of approximately 1,100 railroad trial attorneys from across the United States and Canada. Membership in NARTC is limited to lawyers who handle litigation and/or related matters for railroads or their affiliated entities, or who handle litigation or other legal matters directly affecting railroads
The Tea/Republicans in EDC endorse Flesher. This speaks volumes.
James, should YOU find yourself in an appropriate venue for questioning Mr. Flesher try this one. Mr. Flesher, while you were a farmer for a year in Westlands was the property that you were farming for one year OWNED BY A RAILROAD?
Phil, thanks for the ammo. Speaking of the Tea Party, is it really a grassroots movement? No, actually, it's not -- instead a movement of Freedom Works and Americans for Prosperity, front groups for billionaires and banksters. Local tea party members who think they are running the show as simply dupes. Wake up locals.
The Central Committee is a bunch of party hacks that do not represent the thoughts of most of the county. The TEA Party bunch is a real grass-roots group that dislikes Both establishment political partys. Notice that not one Rep Cent Cmty position is held by TEA Party members. Trying to group these two together is a fools ploy.
