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 two of the three candidates running for Tahoe City Public Utility District; two seats are available. Click on the videos to hear the candidates' messages.

Dan Wilkins — Incumbent

“In the 12 years I’ve been on the PUD board, we’ve acquired over $26 million in outside funding to pay for improved fire suppression and recreation in the Tahoe City PUD service area. This has included the purchase of the Tahoe City Golf Course, completion of the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park and ice rink, and construction of the West Shore trails in Homewood and Meeks Bay.”

John Pang — Incumbent

“I’m asking for your support for a second term — thank you for voting me in for my first term four years ago. I’d like to represent your interest in providing great parks and rec services, quality water, and ensuring the poop flows downhill through those pipes.”

Chose not to participate: Gail Scoville
