Mary Brown and I have run a good hard honest campaign and have not resorted to any negative campaign tactics. We have shown the voters that we follow the rules, have no special interest other than helping get our CSD and will fulfill our fiduciary duties to the district and to the community in a courteous adult manner. We have suffered enough from CSD boards more interested in fighting each other than in the welfare of the District.
If elected, we intend to bring the following suggestions to the board and if the board approves we will work hard to see them through.
1. Make sure that the ad for General Manager is published in all newspapers for our area and on the various industry websites
2. The formation of a Grants Committee to actively seek out funding for infrastructure improvement and upgrading the entire treatment plant.
(We have researched this and there are stimulus monies from the American Recovery Act, grants available from the EPA and USDA just to name a few. We also have someone who has written grants for Public Agencies that will volunteer to help.)
3. Re-do the Prop 218 to include anywhere from 5-10 ccf's included in the $47 monthly service charge and to set tiered water rates.
(We are waiting for the usage figures from CSD to determine if this is feasible)
4. Analysis how CSD operates as a whole and see if there is anything we can do to make it more cost effective.
