The Pleasanton Chamber's Business and Community Political Action Committee (BACPAC) announced its endorsement yesterday of incumbent Angela Ramirez Holmes for re-election to the Zone 7 water agency board of directors in tomorrow's Primary election.
Scott Raty, the chamber's president, said BACPAC members decided that throughout her first term, Ramirez Holmes "consistently demonstrated strong leadership where it counts most: pursuit of greater quantity and quality of water for the Tri-Valley, fiscal oversight and accountability."
"Ramirez Holmes recognizes that our region cannot afford to rely so completely on the State Water Project," the political action committee stated.
It added: "She was the lone board member to vote against both a 30% water rate increase and a 15% raise for the general manager, and she led the charge to air meetings on TV30."
Raty said that Ramirez Holmes has earned the support and respect of many elected and appointed officials in the region and the BACPAC is pleased to join that distinguished list.
"A vote for Ramirez Holmes is a vote for strong leadership, accountability and transparency at Zone 7," the political action committee stated.
