Why are you running for this office?
John R. Knight: I wish to continue as District 1 Supervisor. I care about El Dorado County and its residents. I have balanced the budget for the past three years with no new taxes or fees nor cut any vital services within the county. Through my efforts, and others', the county continues to receive major grant funding for some of its transportation which helps reduce traffic congestion. I will continue to balance the budget with NO new taxes and NO new fees; bring new jobs to El Dorado County and expand the business park; have policies that ensure uncongested roads and give traffic relief; ensure growth is restrained, managed and environmentally responsible; enhance sheriff services and protect our neighborhoods and businesses; and support streamlined and efficient use of county resources. I remain committed and focused on critical issues that will keep El Dorado County a wonderful place to live and work. I will continue to fight for our families, taxpayers, and our way of life.
