2022.06.15 Don Ashton, El Dorado County CAO
Our speaker is Don Ashton El Dorado County CAO.

He enjoys working in County government because it makes a difference in the lives of residents on a daily basis by providing a broad range of services that impact the health, safety and well-being of residents.

"As El Dorado County’s CAO, my top priority is providing leadership and using my experience to help the County take advantage of a committed Board, committed workforce, and engaged community to become a high performing organization that is focused on long-range planning and continuous quality improvement through the implementation of the County’s Strategic Plan. I will work to keep costs and revenue in balance, complete projects that have been deferred because of budget constraints, and continue promoting an accountable, collaborative County and more innovative organization that provides high-quality services and has a clear vision of the future."

A Guide to Visiting the Family-Owned Wineries of Fair Play
There’s nothing more delightful than driving through the Sierra Foothills and embracing the picturesque pastoral scenery replete with farms selling baked goods, cider, and wine from family-owned farms and wineries. Ahhh, the pleasure of spending the weekend with your family and friends, meandering along the winding roads lined with pines and oak trees.
