Voice: Maldonado aligned with Scaroni, who is as private interest as they come

March 05, 2002

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.
