“Our water is my focus”

Dear Friends & Neighbors:
I am running for re-election for the Board of Marina Coast Water District (MCWD) in November 2018. With your support, this will be my third term.

  • I defend groundwater quality. I am volunteering with Protect Monterey County, promoting the ban of fracking and trying to stop injection of untreated wastewater into the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin (SVGB).
  • I work on groundwater management. In 2016 I participated with the Environmental Caucus of the Collaborative Working Group of the SVGB for the new Groundwater Sustainability Act. In 2017, I supported Marina Coast to establish Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) for central Marina and Ord Community.
  • I strive to create science-based policies such as applying Stanford’s Aerial Electromagnetic (AEM) Survey. Scientists can provide AEM imagery to help us determine and maintain specific underground drinking water resources.
  • I see reducing the carbon footprint of MCWD as part of the next five-year Strategic Plan.
  • I do not accept donations from large corporations.

Please support my re-election for continued work on your clean, healthful water.
