"Wheel #4 has been the best preserved of the four wheels because of earlier efforts to rehabilitate it. But preservatin of the wheels requires perpetual efforts and to allow the previous work to waste would be irresponsible stewardship. We are grateful for the efforts of the Jackson City Council to continue stewardship of Wheels #4 and will do what we can to assist in your efforts to restore and preserve these rare gems of Amador County."
~ Gary Reinoehol, President, Amador County Historical Society
"The council supports the effort to protect this registered National Historic Place as well as the efforts to develop comprehensive interpretive signage at the site and new directional signage at various highway locations in the county."
~ Tim Murphy, Mayor, Sutter Creek
"We support your efforts to save Wheel #4."
~ Bill Almgren, President 2010-11, Amador Upcountry Rotary Club
"The City will help in any way we can to assist you in this important endeavor."
~ Greg Baldwin, Mayor, City of Plymouth
"After all, the wheel was the first engineered project for the mining industry designed to benefit the environment and over 100 years later as a society we are still searching for ways to benefit the environment, it is good to preserve those early efforts as well. The wheel serves as an integral part of California's mining history."
~ Diane Anderson, Soroptimist Internation of Amador County
