My Top 3 Priorities

  • Keep Water Rates Low. We have some of the lowest domestic water rates in the West and I will keep it that way.
  • Make Sure our Water Supply Remains Sustainable. I have increased our imported water supplies and will continue to defend them.
  • Clean Water and Sewer for Disadvantaged Communities. We are reaching out to those people in our service area who are not already connected to our system.
