With 28 years of experience with the California State Water Board, I have extensive knowledge of water issues and the use of cooperative and collaborative management practices. My central objective was to solve the problems of water resources, big and small. I helped secure $ 150 million from the state legislature to help local communities clean up polluted runoff through Clean Beaches Imitative.
Renovation of the 50-year-old water treatment plant that serves Penn Valley and Lake Wildwood will be a top priority. New budget controls to cut spending and control water price increases will be an equally high priority.
