We are Strong

Together we have survived and thrived fighting COVID and fires.  We have supported one another in our communities making this a purposeful place to live, work, and play.

The Issues

The Issues with Brooke Laine: Snow Removal

Community residents still live on county roads that have not been adequately cleared from the December storms. There will be more storms.  We need to be better prepared with better equipment, staffing and training. 

The Issues with Brooke Laine: VHR’s

Vacation Rental (VHR) regulations need to be strictly enforced and reviewed regularly.  Taxes collected from VHR’s need to be allocated to a strong and effective enforcement program managed by a local enforcement officer/department with strong support from the Sheriff’s office.

The Issues with Brooke Laine: Tourism

Our local economy is built on tourism.  What attracts us to live and invest in our community also attracts our visitors:  natural beauty of our forests, rivers, and alpine lakes.  Striking a balance between our quality of life as residents and the quality of the experience of our visiting population is key.

The Issues with Brooke Laine: The Housing Crisis

Affordable housing options are not a priority of the county but they should be.  The strains on our residents today are real:  significant rise in the cost of living, increased cost of utilities, lack of affordable housing, cost, if available, of fire insurance.

The Issues with Brooke Laine: Traffic

Vehicle congestion all around the basin is problematic. New micro transit, bike and pedestrian trails, walkable-bikeable town centers, and water borne transportation are all in the works to attempt to address traffic congestion.

The Issues with Brooke Laine: Fire Prevention

Forest management is critical to protecting our communities from fires.  Defensible space is how we help as residents.  The USFS manages over 75% of the land within the Tahoe Basin and they will need to ramp up their forest thinning efforts.

Results & Accomplishments

QUALIFICATIONS

My economics degree is from the UC Santa Cruz.

I am a wife, mother, Soroptimist, business owner, retired bank manager, former Mayor and City Council member.

My experience includes working with various agencies among them: the Education Foundation, Ambulance JPA, Clean Tahoe, Tahoe Conservancy, TRPA, Waste Management, and LAFCO.

DISTRICT V – IT’S COMPLEX!

Eleven different communities make up District V. However, many of our
issues are the same: fire and public safety, senior and veteran services, health care, insurance issues, road improvements/maintenance, changing climate, housing, traffic, vacation home rental enforcement, tourism, and
snow removal. I have the education and experience to manage our 952 million dollar county budget.

REPRESENTATION

District V includes Tahoma, City of SLT, Meyers, Pollock Pines and several other communities. I intend to represent ALL of these and will IMMEDIATELY establish an advisory group with a representative from each of OUR eleven communities.

CREDIBILITY COUNTS AND COMPROMISE IS CHALLENGING

Having a record of working on numerous boards, I have learned to listen, work together, negotiate and compromise to resolve complex issues and arrive at FAIR and MEANINGFUL solutions.

COMPROMISE IS CHALLENGING

Regardless of the issue, my record shows I work conscientiously with all sides arriving at fair and meaningful solutions.
