Events and Committee Announcements

 Richard called on Tony Zugich to give an “ice breaker” presentation, which was an excellent talk on how Darrell and John (his neighbors) introduced him to Rotary, his role as an I.D. specialist in the Vietnam War, his 42 years as the General Manager of 350 employees in the Hayward Pumps business, and his work on the Dart Properties committee. Wayne Cross will be our next “ice breaker.” 

Kimberly reminded us of the Sober Grad night this weekend, and the members who will be bartending. Claire announced that the Women's Club will be closed from March1 to March 20th due to flooring work. President Richard is checking on alternative sites where we can brown bag our March RCL meetings. He will update us ASAP. Carole O., Community Service Chair, would like to meet with committee members on February 15th in the conference room after the club meeting. Jan: "Our own Alan Lowe wrote and directed a comedy Reader's Theater Production with an excellent cast and production crew to packed Kilaga Springs Presentation Hall audiences on Feb. 3rd and 4th. Well done, Alan."

Guest Speaker Ryan Ronco

Ryan Ronco is Placer County’s Clerk-Recorder-Registrar of Voters. He was appointed to his current position by the Placer County Board of Supervisors in 2016, was reelected by Placer County votes in 2018, and reelected in 2022, each for four-year terms. The office has a budget of $13 million and employs a full-time staff of 53. Ryan has successfully administered over 100 federal, state and local elections for the voters of Placer County during his tenure since 1993 in the Clerk-Recorder-Elections Office. He discussed the Statistics in Placer County, which is the 18th largest county of California’s 58 counties. Placer has the highest percentage of eligible voters who are registered. New residents are participating and registering. In 2020, there was an 88.3% turnout. He discussed mail it in, drop it off, or vote in person. Placer County has recently adopted the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) election model, which has transitioned away from assigned polling places to larger, regional voting centers. It will reduce the need to have just 500 helpers in comparison to 1500. Voters can come to the new voting centers and see how voting is done and tabulated. For more information, visit website at Service Clubs can serve in polling centers with at least 10 members helping, and who can earn funds for their clubs with participation from 3 to 5 days. Call 1-800-824-8683, if interested. Ryan discussed open versus closed primaries, drop off ballots, technology in tracking ballot delivery, quality control checks, meticulous proofing, checking voter rolls, and vital records, and working with the post office re: change of a voter’s address.
