Insulting our intelligence is not a way to get votes, as a candidate for the Imperial Irrigation District board is doing; he must think that the Valley voters are not very smart.
At the Brawley American Citizens Club forum he made a false statement that the IID board is putting the power ratepayers at risk by where all the IID vehicles are to be parked. He insinuates this will take more time to respond to an emergency.
Doesn't he know that exceptional service is a primary goal of the IID? In his newspaper ads he again makes false statements that the IID board is going to cut jobs and not have adequate staffing to meet the region's future water and energy needs. One more time, the IID's exceptional service is the primary goal.
As for attracting new business, again he makes false statements; all you have to do is look at the track record on economic development. As for the IID board being too busy on the water transfer and not knowing what's going on in the Valley, this shows me this candidate has no clue on what it takes to be an IID director and the commitment and hard work of all phases of the IID to keep the Valley power and water rates low. (And he wants to be a director?)
