Letter (Jonathon ‘Joby’ Cefalu): ‘Vote what’s best for our community and future’

The City of South Lake Tahoe is at a major turning point in terms of elected officials.

I just received in the mail endorsement from the Tahoe Chamber for City Council. “Vote for candidates that work well together”? A council should be civil, but not necessarily agree; that is the concept of bringing together five elected officials to get the best decision possible. The council should have a working relationship with the city manager, but certainly not have a personal friendship with the city manager. After all, they are the community’s representatives that oversee the duties and success or failure of that position.

We need term limits! No one should serve more than two terms.

Jason Collin brought a lawsuit against the city, regarding community members that wanted the opportunity to vote on the Loop Road. The last thing we need is a person so quick to litigate. Only two solid options ­— John Shearer is a no-nonsense businessman with no agenda other than improving our city; and Joanne Connor should finish her second term.

Vote what’s best for our community and future! Nov. 8 — John Shearer and JoAnn Connor for City Council.

There is not a better candidate for the LTUSD Board than Larry Reilly. He has been an educator for over 30 years. His temperament and knowledge is second to none. He has no agenda other than the improvement of our local education system. His involvement in all aspects of the school system from mentoring students to budgets is invaluable. Pure common sense approach with the personality to stand for what he believes in, rather than what may or may not be popular, is absolutely what we need. Larry is by far the most experienced and prepared candidate on the ballot. Be sure to mark your ballot for the very esteemed Larry Reilly.
