George Turnboo defended the local Environment as a concerned Citizen, and took action on a very serious environmental issue affecting residents. Turnboo rolled up his sleeves, and worked with professionals in the field, to find real answers.

"The history of an old lime processing plant in Diamond Springs continues to be relevant as cleanup operations and work on the Diamond Springs Parkway take place where the plant used to operate."
"Already aware of the pollution at the old plant, in 2016 Turnboo said he was contacted by parents who complained their children were burned playing in Weber Creek."
"As your Supervisor, I will make sure this does not happen again. I exposed the highly toxic waste as a citizen and exposed the county when they tried to cover it up. Money, Power and Greed has to stop in our county, especially when it comes to the safety and welfare of our county residents."
- George Turnboo
Resolving the Issues
Turnboo works to resolve issues instead of creating more. As a business owner for almost 50 years, Turnboo knows the importance of proper management. As a pastor of one of the oldest churches in California, Turnboo knows the value of being genuine. Having been blessed with raising a family in El Dorado County, George Turnboo has a unique and local understanding of the region, the culture, the climate and most importantly, the people.
“This fire was horrific,” Turnboo said. “These last two fires that we had in the county, the King Fire and the Caldor Fire, absolutely destroyed about 60%-70% of our national forest and it devastated a community in Grizzly Flat.”
“This funding for the Grizzly Flat CSD supports important infrastructure needed to rebuild the community,” notes Turnboo. “This is only the beginning and we are so fortunate to have Senator Alvarado-Gil’s partnership and persistence in advocating for our county.”
“The biggest thing is this community needs something since they lost everything,” said District 2 Supervisor George Turnboo. “This center would give them hope because it would unite the community as they rebuild.”
“This is going to be a great thing,” Turnboo said. “There’s going to be blankets, flashlights and everything we need to make this disaster center work across our county but we can also help those in other communities as well.”
District 2 Supervisor George Turnboo brought the discussion of naming the facility the Sheriff John D’Agostini Public Safety Facility to the Board of Supervisors meeting Jan. 24...
Turnboo kicked off the conversation, lauding D’Agostini and his leadership during his 12-year tenure as sheriff. Particularly, Turnboo praised the former sheriff for maintaining his department as one respectful of the law, opening his ranch to Caldor Fire victims while the blaze raged in the county and for his vision on the Sheriff’s Office public safety facility, which had been in the works since the 1980s. “Many sheriffs have attempted to get the project off the ground but it took John D’Agostini to get the job done,” Turnboo said.
During public comment former District 3 Supervisor Brian Veerkamp, along with many in attendance, supported renaming the facility. He said D’Agostini gave his “heart and soul” to opening the facility and recalled going through a number of meetings and processes to get it constructed during his own time as supervisor.
“What it all came down to, whenever there was a tough decision to be made, it was John’s heart, people and ability to get the people behind him as well,” Veerkamp commented. “Having been voted in numerous times, I believe he was very well supported … this would carry on the legacy of the D’Agostini name and he is very deserving of this honor.”

"I support George Turnboo for the office of El Dorado County Supervisor for District 2. I've known George for several years, and have complete confidence that he is the honest, dedicated, forward-thinking person we want in this office. His love for this county is unquestioned, and his promise to work for the best interests of all county residents is what is driving him. He keeps his promises."
"George will not be bought and sold by the developers as a majority of the board has. I have come to that conclusion because the board seems to vote for the developers instead of we, the people, who put them in office.
Save our county. Vote George Turnboo."
