Press Release EDC Farm Bureau Endorsement of Pat Dwyer


The El Dorado County Farm Bureau Board of Directors interviewed and reviewed candidates’ qualifications for the El Dorado Irrigation District Division 2 Board of Directors open seat and voted to endorse Pat Dwyer.
“Pat Dwyer believes in creating consensus by bringing people together to achieve a common goal. He is committed to supporting agriculture by making water available at affordable rates.” said Farm Bureau President, Dave Pratt.
The Bureau trusts that Pat will listen to the concerns of agriculturists and others to understand the impact on all district customers of the financial and operational decisions that will be made.
“Agriculture is the backbone of El Dorado County’s economy due to agri-tourism, our wine industry and the “Farm to Fork” movement. These activities bring revenue into the economy, but hold the developers at bay while creating the landscape that contributes to our quality of life,” noted Pat. “Pat Dwyer has been a major figure in helping us protect our homes from wildfire by serving on the El Dorado County Fire Safe Board. He has worked as a volunteer tirelessly, with the Resource Conservation District and other agencies to procure funds used to stop wildfire from destroying homes as they have done in Sonoma and Shasta counties. I believe Pat will be a valuable addition to the EID board of directors,” said Jim Davies, Forester and Farm Bureau Board Member.
The El Dorado County Farm Bureau works to promote and protect farmers, ranchers, and foresters, and our rural way of life on behalf of the 1200 member families county-wide.

Pat Dwyer Candidate Statement 4 EID Division 2

Pat Dwyer

Retired Military Manager


Pat Dwyer:  US Air Force veteran, leader, community volunteer, married 48 years, father, El Dorado County 13 years.


Retaining our water rights is key to keeping rates affordable, protecting our health, safety, economy, agriculture and rural environment.  We must fend off efforts to send our water South.  These are my priorities.


The gridlock we see in politics and government comes from people creating divisions and fueling fear.  Fear mongering solves nothing and makes us vulnerable.  We must work together.


Throughout my long career, military and civilian, professional and public service, the path to solving problems has always been:  Listening, leadership and teamwork.  We must work together to stop California’s aggressive water control proposals, like rationing us to send more water South, and stop water taxes.


Education:  BA Business, MS Accounting, MBA Logistics


Professional Career:  Director, McClellan Air Force Base, 1,500-member workforce with annual $100 million budget, managed McClellan’s conversion to civilian use on time, under budget; Golden Gate College Professor of Operations Management, 16 years.


Community Service:  Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises Board, 8 years; Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District Board, 5 years; County Fire Safe Councils, 12 years, $2 million funding obtained.


I fought for better fire protection, help me fight for water rights and affordable rates.  I respectfully request your vote.
