Elected Recorder/Clerk,Registrar of Voters, appointed Interim Veterans Affairs Director

It was 1969. Bill Schultz was working as an air traffic controller on board the U.S.S. Enterprise when a Zuni rocket on one of the aircrafts malfunctioned. The ensuing explosion caused a fire that resulted in the deaths of 28 sailors, with over 300 more injured. For Schultz—the son of a World War II Navy veteran—the experience was a gruesome reminder of the risks involved in serving one’s country. Yet when he looks back on it now, what he remembers most is the heroism he witnessed. “They ran into the explosion with fire hoses,” he recalls. “They did everything they could to help their hurt shipmates.” 

After retiring from the military in 1972, Schultz wanted nothing more than to help his fellow veterans, especially in transitioning back to civilian life. These days, he’s the director of the El Dorado County Veterans Affairs Office, as well as a lifetime member of the Fleet Reserve Association and the American Legion. He’s also a former president and an active member—for over four decades now—of the Placerville and Mother Lode Lions Clubs, a nonprofit community service organization. For all his efforts, he was recently named the 2018 Veteran of the Year for El Dorado County. Yet for Schultz, serving his country and community are two sides of the same coin. “Public service is one of the most self-satisfying contributions a person can make,” he shares. “I love every minute of it.”  

I maintain a reliable repository for public records according to all Government Codes and provide efficient service to the public in a way that exemplifies the highest standard of courtesy, cost effectiveness, and ethical performance. Public records will be readily accessible in a convenient manner while safeguarding confidentiality and the security of those records. The Clerk's function provides Birth and Death certified copies along with all types of licenses, issues marriage licenses and performs marriage ceremonies. The Election Department provides election services to all County residents for Federal, State, City and Special District elections. I am the Registrar of Voters and am responsible for assuring compliance with laws related to the FPPC and voter outreach programs, plus our Military and Overseas Voters. The Veteran Affairs Office assists veterans with any facet of their military benefits programs. Certified Veteran Representatives provide help for any veteran in need regarding all aspects of the benefits they have earned.

WHAT WE DO

Strong Harvest works from the bottom up, meaning that we work with families – 

society’s smallest, most interconnected groups – to strengthen them. 

Simply.  Sustainably.
 

When families are strong – when they have good nutrition, clean water, economic opportunities, and the means to protect and care for their land – amazing things happen!  Pregnant women are healthier, giving birth to healthier children; Babies are stronger and the infant mortality rate is reduced; Children are more resilient, able to attend school and retain what they learn; and Parents are able to work more productively, providing better for their families.  Communities and nations are strengthened through a healthier, better educated populace, increased local and national economies, and healthier, more productive natural environments.

Ag in the Classroom

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote an understanding and appreciation of how important and all-encompassing agriculture is in our daily lives.
 
We do this by providing quality educational resources and programs that:

  • Connect students to hands-on agricultural experiences;
  • Help students make informed decisions about their food choices and health;
  • Promote an understanding of the sustainable production of food, fiber, and shelter;
  • Highlight the significance of our local food supply and agricultural heritage.

El Dorado County Ag in the Classroom is a local, grassroots, charitable organization that provides quality agriculture-related educational resources, programs, and training opportunities to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of agriculture in our lives.
 
El Dorado County residents enjoy many benefits of diverse agricultural operations – farms, orchards, vineyards, timber lands, cattle ranches, olive groves, and many others – that fuel our economy, feed our families, and preserve our beautiful rural landscapes.
 
Agriculture is part of our daily lives – from the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the homes we live in. Ag in the Classroom provides resources and opportunities for children to gain an appreciation and understanding of the role of agriculture. When students learn about soil, cultivation, food cycles, animals, nutrition, natural resources, and stewardship of the land, they can make informed decisions as consumers and community members as they grow up.
 
Through programs like Farm Day and Fields of Learning, El Dorado County Ag in the Classroom offers educators, students, and the public opportunities to learn about agriculture in context of local farms, ranches, vineyards, and forests.
 
Through the hard work of our partners and volunteers, high quality standards-based educational resources and activities are available to educators throughout El Dorado County.

In 1999 a local grass roots organization called the El Dorado Food Coalition was working to provide food assistance in El Dorado County. A handful of faith based organizations made up the Coalition. Although this group worked hard they struggled with infrastructure, cold storage, trucks, dry storage, all the stuff it takes to service a rural county like El Dorado. As the need grew the Coalition’s goal quickly became establishing a full service food bank, as El Dorado County was one of the few counties in the state that had no food bank. With the help of a few key organizations and the assistance of the community The Food Bank of El Dorado County was established in August of 2000.
 
Starting off small, The Food Bank supporters put their nose to the grindstone. From a Humble beginning this charity has become the largest collaborative charity in El Dorado County. Providing food assistance to communities throughout El Dorado County through multiple programs including The Food Bank of El Dorado County’s Emergency Food Assistance Network that consists of multiple agencies that make up the safety net for El Dorado County’s at risk population.
