Opinion: Vote for Herrick for Truckee Fire board

We strongly recommend that you vote for Gerald Herrick to serve as board member of Truckee Fire. We have known Gerald for many years and have been impressed with his dedicated service to improve our wonderful Truckee community. He not only has previously served on Truckee Fire Board but has also been chairman many times of Truckee Day when we make our community a little tidier. He has also served on other citizens’ advisory boards and committees such as the Airport Advisory Board, Tahoe Forest Hospital, Rotary, and others.

His interest in the fire board stems from his previous experience as a volunteer and firefighter for the US Forestry Service in the South Lake Tahoe area. During this term he would like to develop long term financial plans to support firefighters and to re-establish the chipping program in our fire district to make our community safer. In addition, Gerald has been working for 6 years with Placer County trying to get more of our Placer County taxes used to provide revenue to the Truckee Fire Board.

Vote for Gerald Herrick for Truckee Fire Board. He¹s honest, conscientious, and will have your interests in mind.

Dan and Alysa Pearson
