Lotus resident Michael Ranalli announced that he is a candidate for El Dorado County’s District 4 supervisor seat.
“I’m running for District 4 county supervisor because I want to preserve our rural lifestyle and secure our future with more jobs,” Ranalli said in a written statement, announcing that he filed nomination papers Wednesday for the June 3 primary election.
The District 4 seat is held by Ron Briggs, who has served two terms and cannot seek re-election because of term limits. The district covers much of the northern part of the El Dorado County, including Cool, Pilot Hill, Georgetown, Garden Valley, Greenwood, Kelsey, Mosquito, Rescue, Lotus, Coloma, and portions of Cameron Park, Shingle Springs and El Dorado Hills.
Ranalli serves on the El Dorado County Community and Economic Development Advisory Committee, El Dorado County Regulatory Reform Subcommittee, and on the boards of the Taxpayers Association of El Dorado County, the Divide Chamber of Commerce and the El Dorado Wine Grape Growers Association.
Renalli said he has 40 years of business experience, including 22 years with Intel Corp. He and his wife, Colleen, have a vineyard in Lotus.
