Read about each candidate and if you are in the original district then please vote. As you know there was a movement to get all water customers a chance to vote with changing the charter and making it fair to all. That is on hold. Stopped as well was a zero cost land deal/swap for a parking garage and work force housing and relocating the Water District which would have been a great benefit for the Work Force housing movement and adding plenty of parking for the Fore-side and Shipyard.
So please know about the candidate and VOTE on Tuesday.. Our drinking water depends on it.
