Without Term Limits in place, these water board members stay and stay for decades.
Even our Mayor has term limits. I expect more from the PW Editor than a rubber stamp stating YEARS of experience and NO education in water engineering is a good thing.

I am voting for LAURENE GREEN as a power vote (vote once then stop). Green is the ONLY water engineer in the group, she has experience cleaning up water contamination, and Zone 7 needs her. I can vote for up to 3, but don't want my second or third vote to help a candidate that just runs for office while we still have VERY hard water that smells bad, and then talks about drinking toilet to tap water as an option in a drought. Zone 7's current leader should say NO like I will on March 3. Vote once, vote Laurene Green!

Is Laurene a fox guarding the hen house?

Laurene’s qualifications are based on her experience working on water contamination projects for Chevron and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory? You do realize this means she worked for the organizations responsible for contaminating the water in the first place? The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is the only Superfund site within our local watershed and this Superfund designation is due to “localized spills, unlined disposal pits and landfills, and leaking tanks...the Regional Water Quality Control Board discovered on- and off- site groundwater contamination in 1983 and the site was listed in the NPL in 1987” (NPL, National Priorities List)

replace zone 7 with zone 8 9 or ten. We need to upgrade to a process that works. Zone 7 is a joke. One other thing for the libs and dems in california who want to make college and health care and now home ownership free. Why are we still paying for the most fundamental right and the most basic necessity of life.
FREE WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Free water and no zone 7. win win.
