Townhall with Adam Scow

2020 begins a new cycle for Public Water Now. PWN has re-registered as a General Committee to allow us to actively support candidates. January 28 will be our first candidate event.  

On January 14, the Public Water Now Board of Directors voted to endorse both Wendy Root Askew for 4th District Supervisor and Adam Scow for Congress – District 20 in the March 3rd primary.

It’s clear that while the passage Measure J was a huge success, this last year has proven that the political forces that oppose public ownership of our water and think Cal Am’s desal are the solution are still hard at work.

Public Water Now has developed considerable political clout and we need to use it. This year we’ll focus on electing candidates who support our goals and what we’ve accomplished so far.

After the primary we’ll focus on the three seats on the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District board that will be up for election in November, as well as several other local races that will impact our water future.
