Placerville, CA, July 27, 2018— Roger “Pat” Dwyer announced his candidacy for El Dorado Irrigation District Board of Directors, Division Two, recently at Boeger Winery to a capacity crowd of enthusiastic supporters. “I am grateful and humbled by the significant backing I’ve received from numerous supporters, having already raised about half of the funds I need to conduct a winning campaign,” stated Dwyer.  “It seems that people are looking for new leadership at EID.”

Pat Dwyer has been building a record of successful business management and public service for more than 40 years.  After joining the Air Force in 1967 at the lowest Airman rank, his outstanding leadership skills and work ethic ultimately led to his promotion to Captain. Pat later became the civilian director in charge of 1,500 personnel and an annual budget of over $100 million at the Sacramento Air Logistics Center on McClellan Air Force Base. He capped his stellar career by directing McClellan’s successful closure and conversion to civilian use.

“My military training shaped my core values: placing public service above self, treating people with respect and honesty, and achieving success as a team,” said Dwyer.  “A strong dose of those values at EID would benefit us all,” he added.
Pat’s education includes bachelor and master’s degrees in Business and a master’s in Accounting. He taught college students in Operations Management for sixteen years, being named “Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Member” at Golden Gate University in 2003.

Pat Dwyer and his family have lived in El Dorado County since 2005. During that time, he has given back to the community in many ways. He has served eight years on Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises Board of Directors, five years on the board of Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District, and 
twelve years on the boards of County Fire Safe Councils. Dwyer has been instrumental in obtaining $2 million in funding for County Fire Safe Councils that help make our county safer from catastrophic fire.

Dwyer is running an energetic campaign. “I’m out in the community as much as possible, meeting voters and learning their views. I’ll be holding neighborhood get-togethers and knocking on every door I can,” he said. “I’m also studying reams of information about EID, attending board meetings, and touring EID facilities so that I can hit the ground running.” 

“EID’s ratepayers want reliable, affordable services without a lot of drama,” said Dwyer. “My message to the voters is, ‘Put me on the job.  With my record of steady, ethical and collaborative leadership, I know I can deliver for you.’”
