Incline Village Realtors - Endorsed Tim Callicrate and me on September 13th, 2018
Tim Callicrate, Incline Village GID Trustee
"Sara has been involved with our community since moving here a few years back. Her commitment to civic involvement has been proven through her regular attendance at IVGID meetings and workshops, her in-depth review of District agendas, contracts, and correspondence, and her willingness to doggedly seek the truth in all things financial. She will make an invaluable addition to the Board."
Joe Campbell, Retired Former President of the Contra Costa Water District
“I served 24+ years as an elected office holder of Contra Costa Water District in California where my peers appointed me as their board President for 22 years. I represented 500,000 people, elected 4 of my 6 terms without opposition. I know how to facilitate a community meeting which included allowing any person (citizen or not) to speak on any agenda items as citizens are truly partners of the District. The 5 directors were seated together and staff was seated separately whereas the public clearly knew who the policy makers were and who the professional staff were; never did I allow the District Secretary to call for any vote. "Fed up" with the California Legislator I bought my 1st home in Incline Village in 1997, eventually moving to Incline permanently when my final term expired. I know leadership when I see leadership, and I am proud to endorse both Tim and Sara as Trustees to IVGID.“
Steve Dolan, Resident of Incline Village
"As an enthusiastic environmental advocate, I was impressed and appreciative of Sara's quick response and the qualifying interview she subjected me to, before she rapidly took action for our beloved Lake Tahoe. Her intelligent questions and honest evaluation made me confident in her as a candidate which I can count on for a neutral assessment and forthright community representation."
Matthew Dent, Incline Village GID Trustee
"Sara regularly attends IVGID meetings and provides positive and constructive feedback on where and how the Board can improve. She has a keen understanding of the financials and believes IVGID has a long way to go when it comes to being transparent. I would welcome her leadership to our Board and believe she will create a tremendous amount of value for the Incline Village/Crystal Bay community."
