Last weekend we were blessed to join our MWD Dir. Marsha Ramos and a diverse group of local community leaders on a Metropolitan Water District Trip to the California State Water Project / Bay-Delta. We toured Feather River Fish Hatchery & Oroville Dam, learned about the Cal Water Fix via presentations by MWD experts Stephen N. Arakawa & Curt Schmutte, and visited the Banks Pumping Plant & Bay-Delta. Guests included Councilman Bob Frutos, Sr. BWP personnel, various Board & Commission members, representatives from the business community & former Dir. Mike Nolan! Below are links to some of the Water Presentations & Trip Pictures fyi. #LearningAboutWater
I had the privilege of joining Governor Pete Wilson, Councilman Bob Frutos & a host of business leaders for Cocktails & Conversation with U.S. Senate Candidate Duf Sundheim at the beautiful Beverly Hills home of Eric George. After a few words from the Governor & former DA Steve Cooley, Duf shared his background & vision for the State & Country, covering job creation, education & health care, public safety & national security, water & the importance of stopping sanctuary city enabler Kamala Harris from being elected. Harris’ politicization of the Office of AG, unlawful search/seizure of Planned Parenthood videos & failure to defend the will of majority of CA Voters on Prop 8, are just some of the reasons Christian conservatives & constitution loving Americans should look elsewhere this July.
