PLACERVILLE, California (InEDC) Nov 20, 2022 — The District 2 office of Supervisor George Turnboo submitted formal letters to all U.S. Senators and U.S. House Representatives from California, outlining the issues and concerns surrounding the Caldor Fire and FEMA Individual Assistance. In response to the formal letter, several congressional members submitted their own formal letter to United States Forest Service Chief Randy Moore for further explanation. In particular, the congressional members highlight the diligent work of the residents of Grizzly Flats in preparation for potential wildfires and contrast that work with the unequal response by USFS in the same region. The letter provides an opportunity for everyone to find out more about what happened.
The letter was signed by congressional members Alex Padilla, Zoe Lofgren, Mark DeSaulnier, Doug LaMalfa, Jimmy Panetta, Mark DeSaulnier, Katie Porter, Mike Thompson, Scott Peters, Tony Cardenas, Salud Carbajal, Jared Huffman, Adam Schiff and Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
