I would like to take this opportunity to commend all of those courageous citizens who are running for local offices. Serving the public is not easy and sometimes not popular but their willingness to do this makes them heroes in my world.
You will be asked make a selection on November 6. Some of the candidates are well known and some are not.
I am asking the voters to consider Dennis Dickinson for Truckee Town Council. Mr. Dickinson truly loves this community. He is one of the most honest people I know. He will not tell you what you want to hear just to be popular. He has repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to talk about unpopular issues that others would ignore, sweep under the carpet or use excuses to avoid.
He has repeatedly demonstrated his commitment to this community with his tireless volunteering and personal sacrifices to do what he believes is right. A new perspective is needed in these tough times. He might be unconventional at times and rock our boat but maybe we need that.
Truckee, member of Truckee Citizens for Responsible Government
