I see that Tobe Plough, one of the candidates for the Montecito Water District, is running advertisements calling for a public meeting to discuss the progress on the desalination plant. This was a good idea, and Charles Newman was already working to make such a public meeting happen. It was held on Tuesday, October 18.
Since his appointment to the Montecito Water District last year, Charles Newman has been steadily making progress to reform the culture of the district and secure reliable water for Montecito, now and into the future. I know Charles well and urge voters to keep him on the board. We don’t want to start over with inexperienced candidates who promise to fix all but are not familiar with what has already been done.
Please vote for Charles Newman for the Montecito Water District.
