Best option for our community

From page A6 | February 14, 2013 |

After 24 years of representing the citizens of Davis as a county supervisor and Assembly member, I was appointed to the Water Advisory Committee by the City Council and was eager to serve, since this was the only city committee on which I have ever served. As is the Davis way, the committee was composed of community members representing all points of view and possessing a wide variety of credentials.

It was an amazing group of people and we labored in many meetings for more than a year to review the history and the many studied options that had been evaluated in the past 20 years in which the need for an alternative to a groundwater source had been debated. Many experts were called upon to help us, often from the university or from other cities in our state where similar problems were successfully addressed.

And in our review and deliberations, we were able to reduce the size and cost of the project by millions of dollars. The vote to proceed with a conjunctive use project was a unanimous one, with an “aye” vote from each committee member.

I am supportive of the proposed water project because I believe it is the best option available to our community. It will bring safe, healthy, clean water to our vibrant and active city .We cannot let the water right from the Sacramento River that has taken so long to achieve just flow on by!

This surface water project is a critical investment in our community’s health and for the future. Please join me in voting yes on Measure I.
