It has been a privilege to serve as your Zone 7 Director for the past four years. We suffered through a drought for most of those years, but together we’re tackling it and I thank you for your water conservation efforts.
As a 17-year Tri-Valley resident and active community member, I ran for the Board to provide a fresh perspective. I fought for regular finance committee meetings, comprehensive financial documents and reporting, transparency, and a better working relationship with our local water agencies and customers.
I heard your concerns about water rate hikes and ballooning budgets and, as your Director, I’ve asked the tough questions about Zone 7’s finances. I am the only Board member to vote against both a 30% water rate increase and a 15% raise for the General Manager.
You deserve a committed Director. I will continue working for a safe and reliable water supply to meet the needs of residents and businesses, strong fiscal oversight, making flood control a priority, and increasing transparency and communication with the public.
You can continue to count on me to be accessible, effective, and committed to work on your behalf. It would be an honor to have your vote.
