EDGAR CO. (ECWd) –
86% of the people voted for change! Change from appointed officials to elected. If there is ever a time to send a message that We The People are tired of the cronyism and nepotism in our government, this is it.
I urge everyone to take a stand and vote for what is right and in the best interest of the public. That best interest can only be continued with solid financials and it’s clear, those 20 year board members have driven your water district into debt to the tune of over $25,000,000.00 million dollars and voted to raise your water rates just about every year of their operations.
Their rates are some of the highest rates in the state compared to other water districts of similar size, and they continue to sell bonds and go deeper in debt – all while raising your monthly bill. Sadly, as those same people raise your monthly bill they find it worthy to give Christmas presents to the employees and pay for it with your money! That is not the leadership we need in any of our government operations. Nor do we need your money being used illegally to support their hand picked political candidates.
In the meantime, please review the articles, at the below link, written over the course of the past 6 months or so that exposes what the current board members have done with your water district and your money!
