Dear Friend,

I am running for re-election for the Board of Marina Coast Water District in November 2022. With your support, this will be my fourth term.

During my last ten years MCWD has:

  • Grown from 8,000 to 9,700 meters while reducing groundwater pumping from 4,000 to 3,000 acre feet per year.
  • Annexed the former service area to be included into the MCWD jurisdiction for voting rights and groundwater sustainability inclusion.
  • Committed to 3C Energy Prime for 50% each solar and wind energy (100% renewable and carbon free) sourcing.
  • Received $15 million in grants. $180,000 in state Covid relief for customers in arrears.
  • Gained National recognition for Engineering Excellence with M1W for project called Pure Water Monterey that includes MPWMD.
  • Created MCWD Groundwater Sustainability Agency.
  • Initiated Aerial ElectroMagnetic Surveys now used statewide in the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act monitoring programs.

I defend groundwater quality. I am volunteering with Protect Monterey County, promoting the ban of fracking and trying to stop injection of untreated wastewater into the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin (SVGB).

I work on groundwater management. In 2016 I participated with the Environmental Caucus of the Collaborative Working Group of the SVGB for the new Groundwater Sustainability Act. In 2017, I supported Marina Coast to establish Groundwater Sustainability Agency (GSA) for central Marina and Ord Community.

I strive to create science-based policies such as applying Stanford’s Aerial Electromagnetic (AEM) Survey. Scientists can provide AEM imagery to help us determine and maintain specific underground drinking water resources.

We could not have made these milestones without your support!

I do not accept donations from large corporations.

Please support my re-election for continued work on your clean, healthful water. www.shriner4water.com
