The national political stage has been at the forefront of our minds as of late, but here at Moonshine Ink we cannot overstate the importance of our local politics. There are 38 open seats on the Truckee Town Council and regional special district boards this year, ready to be filled by men and women who will be deciding the future use of your tax dollars and trajectory of the region. We gave every candidate the opportunity to hop on camera with us and use a roughly 30-second video clip to deliver their platform and message to the voters. Below are three of the four candidates running for North Tahoe Fire Protection District; two seats are available. Click on the videos to hear the candidates' messages.

Danielle Hughes

“I think we need to focus on evacuation strategies and infrastructure. The North Tahoe Fire Protection District has a significant portion of the lakeshore and they’re the only fire district without a fire boat, so I’d like to work with them to obtain one and actually develop some communication networks for them.”

Heidi Doyle

“I believe that first class emergency services and wildfire preparation are essential public amenities for our West Shore and North Tahoe communities. I will be a prudent steward of our tax dollars and will work hard on your behalf.”

Nathan Chorey

“If elected I will use my experience working with the many special districts to foster an environment of collaboration to the benefit and improved safety of the community.”
