Being with family, and in the moment is important. This weekend we spent some time in Stockton, boating on the Delta. My youngest Marc likes water sports, and my husband Joe enjoys the outdoors. The Sacramento River water level is low, but the birds didn’t seem to mind. We returned home, eager to watch the University of Miami football game. My oldest, Andrew is a sophomore there, and I'm proud he's following in my footsteps and studying Environmental Science. How we manage our water resources is important.
This election fight and how we manage the Delta top of my mind. We need sound water policy in the Tri-Valley. The drought is lurking, only a question of when. As someone who has spent their career in the Environmental field, leading projects, overseeing million-dollar budgets, I realized that all these experiences make me a capable candidate in this arena. Knowledge of science allows me to see the opportunity lost.
My decision to run for the Dublin San Ramon Service District is one I chose because of my professional background. I’m qualified and passionate. I’ve wondered why I don’t just do my job and go home to my family every night. This weekend reminded me why – I can’t just sit back and watch our natural resources fade. As a mother of two boys, it’s about the example we set as a society. The drought may be “over” but the drinking water crisis remains. I'll make sure that plans are executed so we're in a better position to manage our next drought so everyone gets the water they need.
I’m not a politician, but I’ll be on the front line. Join me.
