Feder-Sawyer: Rasmussen stands out as a leader

I had the pleasure of meeting many fine folks when I lived in Lake County for just more than seven years. There were numerous opportunities to examine and witness the character traits of truly caring and knowledgeable leaders. Brad Rasmussen stands out as the type of leader who will bring the best to Lake County.

He brings a wealth of experience to the forefront. I found Brad to be honest, transparent and forthcoming at all times. He was unfalteringly accessible, fair and reasonable. He is the true picture of grace and action under pressure. He was also one of the hardest working people I have ever met.

He is a candidate who would represent all of the citizens without bias. In my opinion, Brad has earned the trust of the community he serves. He is mindful of the challenges that face Lake County and comes armed with real world solutions based on his extensive research and involvement in county affairs.

Brad brings institutional knowledge. He was born and raised in rural Northern California. He hails from a family of firefighters and law enforcement. As a law enforcement professional, I knew him to be dedicated, respectful, welcoming, caring, inclusive and tirelessly driven to serve others.

He is also a compassionate pioneer in problem-solving. I knew him to master difficult situations and provide outcomes that best benefited the community.

Brad has been consistently ahead of curve in making updated police policy and training changes that reflect the best practices in the industry and provide for the betterment of the people in the community.

As a newsperson, I am a natural skeptic, but it is without hesitation or reservation that I fully endorse Brad Rasmussen as your next District 4 supervisor — for the best interests and love of Lake County.
