Sonora, CA — It’s a "three for one" race to see who will take over the Tuolumne County District Three supervisorial seat being vacated by Teri Murrison.
Robert Fulcher, Evan Royce and David Bonnot are the three vying to join the Board.
Fulcher commented during the Thursday evening "Meet the Candidates Night" that his district would always be his top priority followed by the County. He added that the needs of his district (the mountains) will, for the most part, undoubtedly be far different than those living in the Lake Don Pedro area.
Fulcher added that he remains no fan of inclusionary housing stating that government should not be able to force builders to subsidize home buyers.
Evan Royce of Royce Construction and Design paints himself as strictly pro business. "In the field that I work in I draw plans and I have to have a lot of forethought. I have to work within a given budget and I have to provide a valuable product and if I don’t do those things then I’m not doing my job. I’ve had to learn to work within these boundaries and that is something that government doesn’t always have to do. I’m going to show business owners that I’m going to work within the boundaries that they work within and provide essential services that are seniors, our youth and our public safety need to have provided."
Professional photographer David Bonnot on the economy, "If we can get large industry that’s great, but I think that’s kind of a long shot. We can get light industry and we don’t have to give away the farm to do that. We can have a lighter footprint as far as jobs go with growing entrepreneurs. We can help the small businesses that exist in our County by growing them and we can also use tourism to help grow businesses that are already here."
