The recent approval of the lifesaving cables came about because there are a lot of good people in Imperial County.
I feel very honored to have been a member of the committee for lifesaving cables across the All-American Canal.
There also are a few old-fashioned idealists who put their idealistic beliefs above an innocent human life. Imperial Irrigation District Director Lloyd Allen was probably influenced by such people.
Lloyd Allen has been around a long, long time. He is probably very tired by now because he just sits on the board without saying very much that matters. A past board member was the same way in his last days and now his name honors the IID auditorium. Does the IID have anymore buildings to be honored by a past board member?
His vote against saving human lives is seen by many as a vote with no research; an assumption vote that doesn't make sense. Has he ever dealt with the coyotes, polleros, undocumented? Has he interviewed them to learn their thinking? Has he ever swum the All-American Canal, the Highline Canal, the Coachella Canal?
