Director: Michael Martinelli
Term Expires:  December 2022

My family moved to EDH in 2014, and love everything this great community has to offer. Graduated from Sacramento State University with BS in Business Administration. My professional background includes experience in the construction industry and contributed to the construction of the Sutter Medical Center – Anderson Lucchetti Women’s & Children’s Center in downtown Sacramento. Currently own the Martinelli Insurance Agency and am very much involved with helping others.

Have always wanted to give back to my community and thought becoming an EDHCSD Board Director was a great way to do so. Also, a member of the El Dorado Hills Rotary Club, and have volunteered for many of their local community events, Big Brother Big Sisters annual pancake breakfast, annual EDH Smoke Alarm Home Safety Check. “Service above self” really resonates with me, and helping our community is a great feeling.

Love spending time with my family, much of our spare time is spent in either Tahoe or Folsom Lake wakeboarding and surfing. Both of my boys are active in sports and love spending time on our immaculate CSD parks playing baseball and soccer.

As EDH residents, we fully utilize the services offered by the CSD, summer programs, after school programs, community parks, and community pool. EDH is a great community and EDHCSD plays a huge part in making this a great community to live in. I really look forward to contributing toward this great community and will work hard to deliver on our residents’ future vision of EDH.
