    D5 deserves someone with ideas, motivation and transparency. Like, someone new. Vote Jaron!

    How exciting to think we may have a County BOS representative that brings enthusiasm and a hands-on approach to community involvement! Chances are most people don’t even know who their BOS rep is (and the good ole boy culture tends to like it that way). People will know Jaron – he’ll be out there picking up trash and doing beautification projects with them, and helping neighbors who need a hand.

    I don’t live in District 5, but the decisions by the BOS have a direct impact on every resident of this county. I strongly support Jaron Brandon for Supervisor because we can’t afford another scandal like the TCEDA, which cost us $6 million. We have a juvenile detention facility that is mostly empty. We need supervisors who understand the needs of our community and Jaron not only understands, but has great ideas for the future, too.

    Jaron’s demonstrated social investment in District 5 and comparison with the incumbent together with the historic failures of the incumbent and indebtedness he has wrought upon the county make the choice like falling off of a log.

    Though we don’t always agree on all issues, Jaron has the potential to be a great supervisor. The county needs someone who will bring people together to tackle difficult issues. We need to move beyond the approaches that haven’t worked and have put our country in even more financial straits. One example is the library, the most favored department in the county, which has now seen major cuts in employees, more so than any other department. Let’s move forward.

    Jaron is a born and raised local who has shown leadership working with all political affiliations at the State level. He brings new energy and ideas when our community desperately needs a new path for our economy and decision-making.

    Jaron is a candidate who listens. We’ve seen what Rodefer can do: NOTHING. Jaron cares about Tuolumne and is committed to listening to the community and making positive change.

    It is an easy choice. Jaron, who is one of the ’good guys’, will represent everyone who lives in Tuolumne County with honestly and fairness. Jaron makes a genuine effort in being interested in what is going on and is proactive on the issues that affect this County, and not for any political gain. We may not live in his District, but I work in it, and Jaron has proven that his interest in every person and every business is important to him. When Jaron takes office it will be the new experience of positive thinking and results we need for the future.

    We need more young people in the community to step up and make this county someplace young and old can be proud of living here. We need to find ways to keep the younger people here to want to stay and help keep the lights on.

    Our county needs supervisors who are willing to take a hands-on approach to the community at large. Jaron is exactly who we need to represent District 5!

    I support Jaron Brandon because he lives and breathes Tuolumne County. Moreover, I believe strongly that Jaron will provide outstanding leadership and fresh ideas. Jaron makes things happen. Please join me in supporting Tuolumne County local, Jaron Brandon.

    I appreciate that Jaron actively listens. And he gets out there and works in the community. While we may not agree on all issues, he has integrity. Something that is sorely needed on the BOS.

    We asked Jaron to sit on the board as a civilian. During our last meeting Jaron made 2 motions which were adopted. He is a good “second set of eyes” to view problems

    Seeing Jaron’s involvement in this community has been inspiring. His ideas for bringing Tuolumne County into the 21st century while still honoring this counties’ great history should me a model for all BOS members. His message has inspired me to get involved with a political campaign for the first time in my life, even though Jaron is not in my district.

    I have walked door to door with Jaron and am impressed with his ability to deeply listen to people from all walks of life, and integrate that into his vision of what will make us a stronger and more resilient community. His energy, enthusiasm, and boots on the ground involvement is amazing. His idea of monthly town hall meetings to keep in touch with the concerns of the citizens here is exciting and long overdue.
