Tahoe Chamber endorses two South Lake Tahoe council candidates
The Board of Directors of the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of South Lake Tahoe city council candidates Brooke Laine and Jason Collin.
In an Oct. 3 release, Tahoe Chamber said the vote to endorse Laine and Collin was unanimous, and followed a thorough vetting process spearheaded by the Chamber’s six-person Candidate Endorsement Committee.
“Our candidate review was rigorous and diligent,” said Board Chair Mike McLaughlin.
The choice, said McLaughlin, was based on individual interviews with the candidates, their performance at the Sept. 20 candidate forum, a review of the statement filed with the City Clerk, as well as information published by local media outlets.
The rating for each candidate was based on a predetermined cumulative scoring system.
“Brooke and Jason also stood out to the Chamber Board with their commitment to listen and bring a fresh energy and perspective to the challenges facing the City and our broader community,” said McLaughlin.
“As part of their service, Council members represent the City on a variety of other agency boards where understanding and working relationships are equally essential.”
Tahoe Chamber is an active bi-state network of more than 660 businesses and community organizations.
