Water is life. I have long been active in our home owners association, but feel that I can better serve the community as a water district commissioner. I had been appointed to complete the term of a retiring commissioner, and would like to continue.
1. To continue to deliver quality water to our constituents at an affordable price while maintaining our water system and conforming to ecological concerns. 2. To be prepared to provide water in the event of a disaster 3. Replacing the aging pipes in our distribution system
Issue # 1, continue to provide water for daily use at an affordable price to users.
Career as a problem solver.Tthe ability to work well with people and keep constituents informed about the workings and issues facing the water district
I don’t. We have an ecologically sound desalination system that does not impact the area water table. As a small system unable to leverage economies of scale, we need to continue to operate at, or even above, the historical, and reasonable, water consumption by our users.
