Vote for Candidates Who Will Make the Right Choices on Water
These candidates understand our water situation and have shown leadership on the issues we face. From water supply to the Expansion of Pure Water Monterey to the public buyout of Cal Am, we trust these candidates to put the community’s interest first.
Some of these Candidates have LandWatch or MC Weekly Meet the Candidates pages where you can compare them with their challengers. Their candidate websites are below and most have Facebook pages you can follow.
In this election we need to change the Peninsula’s water politics to reflect the will of our community, not the special interests of a few. Some of these races are key to doing that. The District 4 Supervisor will need to stand up to the Salinas Valley interests who have aided Cal Am in obstructing the Expansion of Pure Water Monterey in order to force Cal Am’s desal on the Peninsula. In Del Rey Oaks, all three of our candidates must be elected in order to change the Monterey One Water board and move the PWM Expansion forward. The makeup of the next Monterey Peninsula Water Management District board is critical since it will vote on the buyout of Cal Am and the use of eminent domain if necessary.
To achieve a sustainable and more affordable water supply all these candidates have a role to play. Please support them.
