Yes on Measure I committee forms

From page A4 | December 12, 2012 |

The committee in support of Measure I, the proposed Woodland-Davis surface water project, has filed its initial paperwork to begin its campaign.

The mission of the committee, titled Yes on Clean Water for Davis, is to persuade voters to approve the water project in the all-mail election March 5. The project will provide Davis with a “fiscally and environmentally sustainable long-term supply of clean water,” a news release said.

Local environmentalists John Mott-Smith and Alan Pryor are the principal officer and treasurer of the committee, respectively. They join a group of fellow environmentalists, community activists and business leaders on the campaign committee that supports the project, which would provide 12 million gallons per day of surface water from the Sacramento River to Davis water customers. Currently, Davis relies solely on groundwater.

“This is the most important measure to come before the Davis voters in decades,” said Pryor, who kick-started the campaign with a $10,000 personal loan. “It is imperative that we secure a reliable water supply for our future, especially in the era of climate change. That is why I wholeheartedly support the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Project, and am devoting substantial time and resources to support the measure.”

The committee also pledged to conduct a Yes on Measure I campaign based on:

* Full compliance with the letter and spirit of all local and state campaign finance and election practice rules;

* Fact-based messages to public and truthful explanations on project aspects (including water rates) that are of concern to Davis voters; and

* Community-based campaigning consisting of local groups, campaign workers and volunteers.
