About Wayne

Deep Roots in Placer County

I am grateful to have been born and raised in Placer County. I grew up on a cattle ranch in Lincoln, Placer County, where I learned the value of hard work from an early age. I earned a business degree from Sierra College and Chico State University while working part-time at Bank of America, ultimately rising to become a Regional Manager during my 33-year banking career. I’ve also served on various local boards, bringing my expertise in development, transportation, and finance to improve community life. Passionate about the future of our county, I am running for Supervisor of the 5th District, committed to fostering unity and excellence in Placer County.

Wayne's Priorities

for the western slope of district 5

"Our Tahoe communities deserve to be protected from over development that threatens the enjoyment of its unique way of life.

Unlike my opponents, I will always fight against adverse development projects and never take developer money."

I believe it is critical to recognize the very diverse community needs and focuses of District 5. To remain current, I intend to be very available and responsive to the constituents in Tahoe and the foothill regions in gathering their input on critical issues. Recognizing and addressing common problems such as traffic congestion and fire risks that many take different solutions. As Supervisor I would commit to being in Tahoe a minimum of one day a week to engage with the community and encourage and enable residents to be in direct contact with me wherever necessary.

Since Redevelopment Agencies were eliminated by the State, it has made efforts to rehabilitate the core areas of our communities much more difficult. I believe that Placer County has not handled the new approach to redevelopment well. They have been more receptive to larger, more challenging projects, rather than smaller more economically viable proposals. Those larger projects have historically failed to happen. Valuable time has been lost and significant taxpayer funds have been squandered. I would promote seeking out smaller infill developments that are a better fit for the Tahoe communities and also have a greater likelihood of success.

What I hear from Tahoe residents is that the area has become less livable. Just doing basic daily activities is challenging due to the frequent traffic congestion throughout the area. They also often mention that Placer County is working as a counterforce against the desire to maintain and enhance the unique Tahoe character; as evidenced by the proposed Tahoe Basin Area Plan amendments. Residents are reluctantly listened to, but not heard. As a result, the community’s trust with the officials of the county is broken. A commitment to value and regard the community’s concerns must be a top priority.

These are both top issues throughout District 5. Federal and State forest lands have for many decades been neglected and as a result the fuel loads have increased substantially. The State’s Insurance Commissioner and the legislature’s inactions have only compounded the insurance crisis. I would be a constant and loud voice to the leadership of these agencies and governing bodies demanding creditable action on these urgent issues.
