ERIC HAMMER ANNOUNCES RUN FOR SANTA CRUZ COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, DISTRICT 5
Campaign Kickoff To Be Held Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 5:30PM
Scopazzi’s Restaurant, 13300 Big Basin Way, Boulder Creek
Brookdale’s Eric Hammer will officially announce his candidacy for County Supervisor at a special event in Boulder Creek on Thursday November 17. The community is invited to join Eric, his wife Susan and dozens of local dignitaries and community leaders at Scopazzi’s Restaurant.
Hammer chose to kickoff his campaign in Boulder Creek in part to show his appreciation for the tremendous support he has received from his north county neighbors who have twice elected him to the Parks and Recreation District Board.
“I was born and raised in the San Lorenzo Valley, I went to school here, I built a business here and this is where I chose to raise my family.” Hammer said, “I’m passionate about ensuring that my kids have the same experience, the same beautiful environment and the same opportunities that this community has given me.”
Hammer, 43, is the son of Mary and Joe Hammer of Boulder Creek. He and his wife Susan have three children: Kai, Charlie and Ruby.
He is a member of the Boulder Creek Recreation and Parks District Board, President of the Boulder Creek Business Association, a member of the Board of Directors of Community Bridges of Santa Cruz County and is on the Citizens Advisory Committee of Mountain Community Resources.
