Royce Solicits Community Leadership
Written by Evan Royce:
To the Residents of District 3,
I am honored to have been your board of supervisor for the past 8 years. I have done my best to represent you with an honest voice. It is now time for me to pass on the torch.
Being a public servant is a gratifying experience. Helping our community prosper, keeping our families safe and helping others who are in need is just a small part of the job. There are many important issues that will need to be resolved within the near future. I am asking you to consider stepping up to be the next board of supervisor for district 3.
Running for a board of supervisor position can be intimidating. If you are interested in being a candidate, I am available to answer any of your questions to take the mysteries out of the election process. The deadline for filing is March 14, 2018. The cost to file is $398.14. You will need 20-40 signatures from district 3 registered voters. Filing papers and candidate handbooks are available at the Tuolumne county clerk office, 2S. Green Street; (209) 533-5570.
I have always admired President Theodore Roosevelt and this quote sums up my challenge to you for a call to action.
“It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points how the strong man stumbled or when the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly…who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who, at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
