Voice: IID is brimming with waste

November 17, 2001

Nikki Curtis, you are so right that you couldn't keep your mouth shut if you worked for the Imperial Irrigation District with all the waste going on around you. I can't believe you aren't yelling at the top of your lungs that the IID is wasting $30 million per year, about $65 per month per residential power user in the Imperial Valley.

Nikki, you also missed the point of my letter. I was responding to a letter from John Garcia stating that all farmers are rich, greedy and damning the community. You work in the farming industry and know that in the last 10 years, vegetable farmers have not fared well.

I also stand by my statement that, "Only smart guys get fired at the IID." IID pushed Mr. Lahde out a few months ago and every statement from the Board of Directors I read in the I.V. Press was he was an excellent employee and would have been instrumental in implementing the cost savings at the IID.
