Current Job: Civil Engineer, Water Reclamation Operator
Top 3 Priorities if Elected:
Video tape all District meetings and broadcast on public TV channels (AMP).
RESOLVE NUMEROUS LAWSUITS; PROVIDE DETAILS COSTS AND FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS ON THE FAILED REGIONAL DESALINATION PROJECT
Seek resolutions and negotiations. Ask District staff to provide detailed cost information, expenditures and reimbursements on the failed Regional Desalination project.
MAINTAIN CURRENT WATER AND SEWER COSTS FOR CENTRAL MARINA. LOWER WATER COSTS FOR ORD COMMUNITY CUSTOMERS
Propose to supply potable to Peninsula cities on an interim basis. As I mentioned at the public meeting on August 13, 2012 at the Marina Library, the Marina Coast Water District, in conjunction with Fort Ord Reuse Authority, may be able to lower the costs of water delivery at the Ord Community by loaning potable well water for a limited period of time, say 2,500 acre-feet, to Cal Am to meet the dead line and enable Cal Am to complete the construction of their proposed desalination, reclaimed water and aquifer recharge facilities at the same time. The Board of Directors must inform the rate payers how much money has been spent on the failed Regional Desalination Project, how much money has been reimbursed from California American Water Company to date, how much money will be reimbursed from Cal Am and how much money will be borne by Marina ratepayers. Additionally, the District must again look at other ways to resolve disputes with Cal Am and Monterey County Water Resources Agency besides embroiling in numerous lawsuits.
