Michael Oliveira Sets The Record Straight
Arnold, CA...When I decided to run for Calaveras County Supervisor District 3, I was determined that my campaign would be run in an ethical manner based on the issues, and without attacking my opponents or ‘dirty tricks’ which I’m proud to say we have honored. Unfortunately, not everyone operates with the same ethics or morals. I knew that running for public office would open the door to personal attacks, rumors, mistruths, and innuendos which are common place in politics. What is not common place is the personal attacks directed at my campaign volunteers that are not running for office, nor do they make policy decisions for my campaign. I’m writing to you today to clarify and dispel several mistruths being touted by an opponent; Mistruth #1: The Oliveira Campaign is telling people that Mike Borean wants to restrict/close access to public lands....
Truth #1: My campaign volunteers did not make these statements, Mike Borean did as well as Ms. Callaway during the Candidates Night in Murphys on April 16, 2014. If you doubt this I would encourage you to review the video in which they stated that they intended to support the closure of a portion of the National Forest (Candy Rock). See the video here:
Mistruth #2: Michael Oliveira does not live in the district.
Truth #2: We purchased our existing home in Blue Lake Springs in 2002 knowing that we would ultimately move to Arnold permanently. In 2007 I was hired as an ‘extra hire’ for the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department, then later filled the Resident Deputy position and did so without compensation starting in 2011 due to the County’s budget crisis. I filed for my Homeowners Exemption as our primary residence on our Blue Lake Springs home, as well as registered to vote in Calaveras County. Even though I have taken a leave of absence from my Sheriff’s Department role due to the campaign, I still live full time in Arnold CA.
It is my goal to become the Calaveras County Supervisor for District 3 and to do so with integrity, morals, and ethics. I ask for your support and vote on June 3rd based on my extensive experience in both the public and private sectors. If you have questions or concerns, I would encourage you to call me at my home, 209-795-0985.
