    Jaron’s embrace of and dedication to the whole of the county signifies to me. He is not parochial and narrow-minded at all.

    I am impressed by Jaron’s intelligence, enthusiasm, and commitment to his campaign and learning about our county’s issues. As a supervisor he will bring youth, dedication and honesty to the task.

    Our county is in serious trouble. We need new Supervisors to lead us.

    We definitely need a new perspective. There are just too many things that seem to go unnoticed and unremedied. I’ve also gotten to the point that I feel that Mr. Rodefur follows his own instincts rather than listening to the will of the people.

    Jaron is an excellent listener who is open to hearing the ideas of everyone. Unlike supervisor Rodefer, he won’t block or censor those who don’t share his views.

    Jaron has changed the face of the Body Politic in Tuolumne County. His immense energy and dedication to our community radiates from some deep love and understanding of this place. Home-grown and world educated, Jaron has returned to our fold, ready to work and support ways to build a kinder and better future in Tuolumne County.

    Impressive , intelligent, community minded young man . A breath of fresh air to wash away the bitter taste of Karl Rodefer . The people’s choice. Looking forward to the future with you on our BOS.

    For the first time in a long time I am excited about a local candidate. Jaron’s proving over and over that he is a “doer” not a talking head. Jaron is out amongst our community helping replace a roof, finding showers for the homeless, working food banks, cleaning up every space he sees needs attention. He has a resourceful attitude and rolls up his sleeves and jumps right in. He truly cares about our local communities.

    Jaron’s education and knowledge has him looking into ways to help our area flourish. His doer attitude has him taking actions, not just thinking about it. He’s a great example for all of us.

    Jaron has proven time and again that he is for the people of our community.

    We have had little to no forward thinking on our BOS, it’s time to change that.

    Jaron Brandon has a platform of responsible growth and preservation of our local history.

    Jaron Brandon is our candidate

    I first met Jaron over a year ago, in person. He cares about the whole community, he listens, not afraid to get in and help

    where needed. I have not lived here my whole life, but I care about the future here, and I believe Jaron is the right person for this position.
