|Dear Neighbors and District 2 Residents:
I am honored to be your representative on the Calaveras Board of Supervisors for District 2.
Our district includes the communities of Calaveritas, Glencoe, Mokelumne Hill, Mountain Ranch, Paloma, Rail Road Flat, Sheep Ranch, West Point, Wilseyville as well as parts of San Andreas.
I have worked hard to learn about the different communities of our district. I have gotten to know many of you and we have discussed the variety of issues facing our community. The towns in District 2 all have unique characteristics and characters, but we share many common values and goals. We share a desire to make our communities stronger, healthier, happier and more secure. We want to maintain our rural character and independence, but recognize that none of the challenges we face as a community can be overcome alone.
The Butte Fire is still very raw in our memories and our communities are still struggling to recover. Our recovery will take time, perhaps many years as we rebuild homes, work to prevent future fires and rebuild our infrastructure. Rebuilding must happen in such a way that we are stronger. It will take a steadfast determination to reach our goals, but together, we will get it done.
As many of you know, I am a fifth generation resident of Calaveras County, where my family settled over 150 years ago and began mining and raising cattle around Mokelumne Hill. I currently live with my wife of 22 years and our two sons in Paloma where we ranch and run a small business. I have a diverse professional background having served as an Officer in the US Army Reserve, a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay and worked for the University of California where I began as a student at UC Berkeley and eventually became the Founding Vice Chancellor of UC Merced.
My work experience taught me how to negotiate among varied stakeholders, how to include the community in decision making, how to encourage economic development and how to plan for the long term impact of current choices. I will use my personal history in the county and my professional experience to be an effective representative of the County and State on behalf of District 2.
I welcome your input and advice. If you would like me to meet with your community, neighborhood group or group of friends, please let me know and I will attend. I will keep this website up to date or you can follow me on Facebook. You can also reach me at (209) 286-9003 or email email@example.com.
Thank you for your support and friendship and I am proud to represent District 2 on the Board of Supervisors and serve our community.
John “Jack” Garamendi, Jr.
