Pat Dwyer is the best candidate for Division 2 director.

Although a newcomer to the EID board, Dwyer has a lot going for him. He’s well-educated, an Air Force veteran and has served as the civilian director in charge of 1,500 personnel with an annual budget of more than $100 million at the Sacramento Air Logistics Center on McClellan Air Force Base.

Dwyer understands the need to invest in EID’s infrastructure and with a master’s degree in accounting, he can be a good financial watchdog on the board. Dwyer also makes a good point when he stresses that EID is a consumer owned operation and when we invest in its infrastructure we are investing in our own future.

Supportive of the county pursuing additional water rights and of protecting the county’s agricultural heritage, he knows better than anyone that quality of life is a big reason people move to this county and love living here.

He would also be a more rational voice on the board with a clearer focus of advocating for residential users without jeopardizing the progress EID has achieved on infrastructure or alienating other non-residential ratepayers.

We believe Pat Dwyer is the right choice and has our endorsement.

A Proven Ethical Leader for EID

EDITOR:

We need a fresh face on the El Dorado Irrigation District Board of Directors, a proven problem solver who brings people together, a constructive voice representing our interests, a person who understands operations as well as finances. Above all, we need an ethical leader with a proud history of serving his community and his country, one who makes decisions based on facts, not politics. Thankfully we have such a person running for the EID board, Division 2, this November.

Let me tell you a little bit about this amazing person who would who would represent us with integrity and professionalism on the EID Board of Directors. Pat Dwyer considers serving on the EID board a way to give back to his community, similar to his serving on the Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises Board for eight years and serving on El Dorado County Fire Safe Councils for 12 years, all without pay, of course.

Pat Dwyer is a proud veteran of the U.S. Air Force moving through enlisted ranks, ultimately becoming an officer. Pat was put in charge of aircraft maintenance and repair at McClellan AFB, where he directed over 1,500 workers and managed a budget of over $100 million. Later, Pat, as a civilian, directed the transfer of McClellan from military to civilian use, a huge undertaking, which was accomplished on time and under budget. This is a leader who knows how to work with others to get the job done.

Pat has master’s degrees in business and accounting. As adjunct professor he taught operations for 16 years at Golden State University, being named Outstanding Faculty Member.

I know Pat and I’ve known a number of EID directors over the years. No director has been better suited to the job than Pat. He will bring professionalism and effective leadership to the EID Board of Directors. You can learn more about Pat on his website at patdwyer4eid.com and on Facebook. Please support and vote for Pat Dwyer, El Dorado Irrigation District Director, Division 2, on Nov. 6.
