Four years ago, I questioned...
When I ran for VWD in 2012, I had a lot of questions.
I questioned the transparency of the district. We now have an improved and more easily accessible website. We televise our meetings and have later start times to make it easier for the public to be involved.
I questioned the pension policies. We have reformed the system, asked employees to self-fund, and lowered our expenditures.
I questioned our continued reliance on imported water. 100% of our water was coming from sources near San Francisco or from the Colorado river. We now obtain 28% of our water from the Carlsbad Desalination Plan. In addition, 74% of our wastewater stream is now reclaimed.
Looking ahead, I share your concerns:
I have the water experience to make wise decisions. I am committed to serving YOU. I take an open, honest, and accountable approach to public service.
I've worked hard the past four years as your representative. I will be honored to continue to serve you. I appreciate your vote on November 8th.
