I was surprised to see in your endorsement of Imperial Irrigation District Division 5 Director Rudy Maldonado that you cited his ability to stand up to "private interests."
Didn't Heber farmer Steve Scaroni host a recent political fund raiser for Maldonado?
I realize that politicians must take support where they find it, but doesn't Rudy know that Scaroni's interest in selling water for a profit is about as "private" as they come?
Talk about politics making strange bedfellows.
This is a remarkable alliance to me, and I know it was to many who saw it in the advertisement that came out in your newspaper several weeks ago.
I guess you must have missed it.
