My Top 3 Priorities

  • 1. Finalize the General Plan. The General Plan provides a clear path for commercial, industrial and residential development into areas properly suited while maintaining our healthy environment and rural character.
  • 2. Economic Development. With a clear path through the General Plan investors will not be as skeptical investing in Calaveras County. Bringing in commercial retail and industry providing jobs.
  • 3. Providing Public Safety and Services. With proper sustainable Economic Development comes an influx of revenue through multiple avenues. Filling our coffers precipitates being able to fund the services the people expect and deserve.



In 1983, I moved with my family to Mokelumne Hill. I have had the privilege of growing up in this beautiful rural Calaveras County and am now raising my children here. This has motivated me to become involved publicly to help preserve a viable healthy future for Calaveras. Working in the Building Trades for over a decade, I made a Career change in 2009 and went back to school to become a Wastewater Treatment Operator. Calaveras has an abundance of natural resources in water rights and I believe we must work to retain these rights. In 2016, I worked diligently on the Planning Commission to finish the draft for the “General Plan”. A finalized General Plan is pertinent for a sustainable economic future. I will work with the employees of the county to find solutions and help expedite public services. I will work to bring our aging infrastructure up to date for example; our rapidly filling landfill. I will work to hold Government accountable to render services the constituents of Calaveras voted for and deserve. Vote for Benjamin Stopper. I am an innovative forward thinker and I believe Calaveras must be healthy and sustainable for our future generation.
