Mike Owen Responds to Election Results
This morning, we wanted to take a moment to extend thanks to the citizens of El Dorado County, as well as the cadre of volunteers and financial donors, who supported Mike Owen's efforts to gain the Auditor-Controller's position. While the outcome that we all had in mind may have been temporarily delayed, we should be proud of the conversation that the campaign has started in our County.
In the light of the morning of June 4th, it is obvious that during this campaign the incumbent rapidly went from "I'm not worried" to "help me buy this election" because of Mike's popular groundswell of support. Mike was outspent more than 4 to 1 and his local funding was outmatched by the vast amounts of money invested by development interests from out of our area. You should ask again - What are they buying with those big contributions? and Why was over $90K invested in this particular race for a non-policy making role?
Be assured that Mike plans to remain active regarding our community's efforts to expose and exorcise the inexcusable management and financial practices in El Dorado County. He will be pushing hard for the establishment of an Audit Committee. He will be carefully watching the planned system implementation date as well as the inevitable finger pointing and purge that will follow.
Until he's on the ballot again, look for Mike at the Crystal Basin Bistro in Camino!
