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 the three candidates running for Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District; two short term seats are available. Click on the videos to hear the candidates' messages.

Dan Kates — Incumbent

“I’m very excited about the work we’ve done here at TDRPD, where we’ve twice been voted the best rec district in the state of California. So, I’m looking forward to keeping that train rolling and would welcome your support in November.”

Jason Hansford — Incumbent

“I am seeking to continue my tenure on the board of directors to ensure the district continues to provide exemplary facilities and programming that our community has come to expect.”

John Mon Pere

“I’d like to see Truckee-Donner Recreation and Parks prioritize serving our working families, elders, and veterans. Truckee Rec and Parks should work with the American Legion Truckee chapter to maintain and revitalize the Truckee Veterans Memorial building for the whole of the Truckee community.”
