Re "Special election to replace ousted county supervisor Ray Nutting stirs up El Dorado County" (July 25): I've known Dave Pratt for years, and I think I've gotten to know him: his business, his family and his activities for El Dorado County. I've witnessed him on all those fronts, with exemplary results.
We have to remember that times have not been the best for the last 6 years here in our backyard. The local economy has reacted to what the national and state economies have suffered. Pratt and his family have done what lots of us have done: they adjusted their lives and business and corrected what needed to be done to survive that economic climate. Pratt has moved forward with vigor, ready to face all challenges put before him.
He has served in the front of the room for over 10 years in the agriculture and planning commissions. Pratt is the only candidate who's proven, tested and ready to serve.
