Corporate Executive Chuck Smith Files for EID Board Of Directors  

by Placerville Newswire / Aug 23, 2016 / comments

Placerville, CA – Retired corporate executive Chuck Smith has completed filing the necessary paperwork with El Dorado County elections officials to place his name on the November ballot for the EID Board of Directors in Division 1.  Smith has been serving the community as a STAR volunteer with the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and the El Dorado County Sherriff’s Posse.  

In a post-filing interview Smith said the he wanted to further serve our community by using his corporate management experience to help improve EID and protect our water from out of the area special interests.

“While working in the corporate world I learned how to make businesses function better and become more successful,” explained Smith, “now that I’m retired, I want to give back to our community by helping improve the way we run EID”.

“My top two goals, if chosen by the ratepayers, will be to protect our water from out of county special interests and work to expand the precious water supply we all depend on,” said Smith, “I understand our governmental system and will work with our representatives in Washington and Sacramento to help EID receive funding for necessary improvement projects and breakthrough barriers imposed by out of touch bureaucrats”.

“To me”, said Smith, “nothing is more important to our water security then protecting our water from Southern California developers, environmental extremists, and overzealous government regulators”.

“Everyone knows that the corporate world does a better job at minimizing cost drivers,” said Smith, “I want to put my experience with reducing costs to work for EID to help keep our water and sewer rates from rising to high”.

“Finally,” said Smith, “I want everyone to know that they can count on me to never vote for an unbalanced budget, wasteful policy, or refuse to meet with any individual or group wanting to discuss ways to improve EID”.  

  EID’s Division 1 includes El Dorado Hills and portions of Cameron Park.  Chuck Smith can be reached at (916) 941-8784.  The election will be held on Tuesday November 2.
