DISTRICT 5 ROUNDUP - January 14, 2013

Dear Friends,


Happy new year to you all!  2012 was incredibly rewarding and my tenure as Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors was enlightening and challenging. 2013 looks to be a great year which will also be filled with challenges and opportunities. In February I will be traveling with some of my fellow Supervisors to Washington DC to meet with our federal partners at agencies such as the Forest Service, the EPA, Transportation and others. We will be in DC to advocate for policies and projects that serve the residents and visitors to Placer county. I'll also have the opportunity to serve as Chairwoman of the Air Pollution Control District. As always, please let me know how Jocelyn, Steve or I can be of assistance to you with County related issues or concerns! 


I hope you find the information useful and I hope to see you out in the beautiful 5th District!


All My Best - Jennifer Montgomery
