    Placerville, CA – Respected taxpayer advocate Mike Owen today released the results of a public opinion survey on County Government he conducted at the El Dorado County Fair in June. Mike Owen conducted this survey to help local residents communicate their views on what they see are the real problems facing our County. Owen plans to keep soliciting input from the public, instead of established County insiders, to allow him to put forth better solutions to solve these problems as he campaigns to become our next County Auditor-Controller in June 2018.
