Four years have gone in a snap, blurred by the challenges of Covid-19 and the latest drought emergency. The experience of being on the Board for DSRSD enriched me. We moved forward on many of my key issues including environmental sustainability, power use and infrastructure improvements. I pushed for a review of our service fleet to identify where we can introduce natural gas or electric powered vehicles. I voted for Stage 2 drought conservation measures and continue to advocate for more community outreach and grant funding. But there is more to do....
I wasn't sure there would be an election again. Two years ago, we needed to appoint a candidate in Dublin because no one filed for the seat in District 5. I am glad to see interest in water this year and welcome the opportunity to talk about issues on the minds of people in San Ramon as we go through this process. I took this website down post election, doing outreach at events in the community instead. It will be fun to blog again.
Last year I served as Board President for DSRSD and I just concluded my term as President of the Livermore Amador Valley Water Management Agency. As Liaison with the City of Pleasanton I support regional solutions to our supply shortages. The current state of water in California is grave. We need long term solutions. Right now in the Valley we import 70% of our water, and expect that our allocation from the State Water project will decline in coming years as the drought extends. Supply and reliability are critical.
