Board Chair Lee Adams stated Sharon Dobija withdrew her application, so there were five applicants. Supervisor Scott Schlefstein made the motion to reappoint Liz Fisher, who would like to “continue working in a place to be part of a healthy, thriving community and county,” and appoint Mike Filippini, who has “a background in public administration and education that I think provides me with skills and insights that would be useful,” and Jenna Endres who believes “land use decisions are an important part of protecting our County’s quality of life and believe my professional experience can make a positive impact on Sierra County.”
Supervisor Paul Roen was concerned about Endres, MPA, AICP, Senior Planner in Town of Truckee Community Development Department, formerly Senior Planner, Building and Safety Division Santa Barbara County Planning and Development, being a full-time
Planner with the City of Truckee. County Counsel stated there would be no conflict of interest as long as Endres wasn’t employed in Sierra County as a Planner.
Motion passed for Fisher and Filippini, but failed for Endres with Supervisor Peter Huebner, Chair Adams and Supervisor Roen voting no. Supervisor Roen made the motion to appoint Janet Baldridge, whose “30 years living in the Tahoe region has made me very aware of what can happen to an area without strong, directed and controlled growth.”
Baldridge was appointed with Supervisor Jim Beard voting no.
