Jeff Davidson's Letter
Jeff Davidson’s letter to the Editor explains wonderful things that
Victoria Erickson has done for his community. He left out several items
Victoria is responsible for, which I would like to add.
Victoria has voted to give herself substantial pay increases along with a
$350 per month vehicle mileage “reimbursement”, which does not require
any travel in order to receive the cash.
Victoria gave $75,000 to improve a school in Angles Camp, while allocating
none of the $200,000 - plus toward improvements in Rancho.
Victoria has set a new low for the return of phone calls and emails to her
constituents; unless you are a builder or developer who has contributed
toward her election.
Victoria has done nothing to support or help the local volunteer fire
departments. Not even showing up for meetings when requested.
Victoria voted to eliminate the night meetings of the Board of
Supervisors; this was after she promised me that she would not do so.
Victoria has delayed the completion of the Copper Community Plan, and is
now using it for political gain.
Victoria has done little if anything to improve conditions on highway 26. She has missed a large percentage of important meetings of the COG board,
of which she is a member.
Victoria has attempted to raid the Rancho Calaveras CSA #1 road fund
intending to spend the funds for the benefit of her friends.
Victoria negotiated an agreement with Developers of Oak Canyon Ranch which
provided them with a savings of more than 3 million dollars in road funds.
Victoria has ignored the County’s General Plan, allowing projects to go
forward without proper zoning, sometimes without necessary approvals.
Victoria has agreed to “revisit” Road Impact Mitigation fees in order
to reduce builder fees and to completely eliminate the fee for commercial
I can see why Mr. Davidson thinks Victoria deserves a second chance. He
has a lot to gain by her re-election. I urge all district five voters to
vote for ANYONE other than Victoria.
