Bud Pinkham (District 1)

...
RÈsumÈ: Pinkham served for 12 years on the Exeter Elementary School Board, citing it as an example of elective public service.
Pinkham also has a long history of service in local and statewide groups, mostly in agriculture, notably in 24 years as member and officer of the California Canning Peach Association and participation in California Grape and Tree Fruit League.He is also a member of the Tulare County Historical Society and Visalia Chamber of Commerce.
Self-Assessment: Pinkham emphasizes his record of service on various boards and commissions as proof of his ability to work with others in setting policy.Agriculture is his business and his No. 1 priority.He also identifies himself as a strong advocate of law enforcement, private property rights, local control and more efficient government.He promotes better cooperation between the county and cities.For instance, he would have preferred that Visalia's Measure T had been countywide.
On the Pre-Trial Facility: Like his opponent, Pinkham agreed that the Tulare County Pre-Trial Facility had to be reopened, even though the county risks $1.2 million investment up front and there are no guarantees to the $900,000 Sheriff Bill Wittman expects to get in federal contracts for housing parole violators.
...
On managing growth: Pinkham recognizes that some expansion of city boundaries needs to occur to accommodate growth and bring jobs and opportunities, but he says it should be carefully limited.
...
Like his opponent, Pinkham sees no need to include an agriculture element in the revised general plan, fearing it will stipulate to property owners what they can do with their land.
"As supervisor I will follow this road map to the future without detours.Agriculture will then flourish.
On the Rural Valley Lands Plan: Like his opponent, Pinkham would have voted with the minority and refused to revise the Rural Valley Lands Plan to permit a private school to build playing fields and classrooms on prime ag land.
Pinkham said one entity should not be able to change the entire plan.
"It's the tail wagging the dog."
On obtaining the county's fair share of property tax dollars: Pinkham will vote for both Propositions 1A and 65.The state Legislature has become paralyzed, and the people need to take back control.
Pinkham also believes the county ought to pass its own version of Measure T to ensure funding for public safety, by adding another one-eighth percent to the current quarter-center sales tax for public safety in Visalia.
On a green belt between Tulare and Visalia: Pinkham believes the mistakes have already been made in this area and there is nothing to be done now to keep the cities from merging.He especially disagrees with any government intervention at this point and said the only way it could happen is if property owners privately decide to keep this area in ag production.
"What you can't do is dictate to people whether they can sell their land."
On open meetings: Pinkham said the county needs to follow the law and supervisors not meet for lunch privately.His motivation for not participating, however, is that the media would not approve.

Frank "Bud" Pinkham, 63, is seeking to represent the district that encompasses the communities of Farmersville, Exeter, Lindsay, Strathmore, Lemoncove, Three Rivers, the far eastern edge of Visalia and Sequoia National Park, now overseen by Supervisor Bill Sanders.

...
I believe he gets to the bottom of issues quickly and asks the right questions," Pinkham said."My goal is to continue to successfully fill the office as he done with careful research into issues, hard work and honesty."
Pinkham said he believes county officials can do more during the good economic times to prepare for tough economic times, like the one Tulare County is currently facing.
He also said money should be channeled into core services.
"We must put our resources into services such as law enforcement, fire control and road repair," he said."These are the services that affect everyone in the district.We have nothing if we don't have those core services."
Pinkham also said the county must have a well thought-out plan for future growth in the county, balancing growth with the protection of land, water and environmental resources.
Additionally, Pinkham said county officials should strongly support private enterprise.
"I feel one of the roles of government is to serve businesses with the goal of keeping them profitable, because the private sector of our economy is the lifeblood of the county," he said."Government should not hamper them with unnecessary rules and regulations."
Together with his brother, Patrick, Pinkham has produced peaches, plums and table grapes for 40 years.
He has served on the Exeter Union Elementary School Board for 12 years, and has been a member of the California Canning Peach Association.
A lifelong resident of Exeter, Pinkham and his wife of 40 years, Sherry-Lee, have raised three children.
