You may have seen a recent post by Steve Proe where he said that Supervisor Ranalli took a $50,000 payout. He then posted an "electronic tar and feathering" from Ron Scheckle in which he stated that Mr. Ranalli took a $50,000 donation from the El Dorado Chamber of commerce PAC. 

I don't know Mr. Scheckle and I'm sure he's a great guy but somebody fed him a bunch of BS. I personally contacted the county employee responsible for keeping all FPPC mandated records. Supervisor Ranalli received a $15,000 donation from the Chamber PAC.

Opinion: About this MarVal Bashing

Frankly, I am getting tired of seeing these nasty posts about MarVal and the dairy situation. I don’t see in most (any?) of them where the manager has been contacted to resolve these problems. 

No, everyone comes to Facebook first. 

Do you realize how fortunate we are to have MarVal here? It is one of the businesses that make us a community. Without MarVal, the gas station, our Fire Dept., our restaurants we are nothing more than a bunch of people living in houses next to each other and we become a bedroom community.
