Election about “water rights” or something else?

By From page A5 | October 30, 2013


When one reviews the timeline of what occurred after the EID general manager proposed a developer hook-up fee hike to better help cover EID’s mounting debt costs, then, after “negotiations,” that proposed fee is later cut by $7,000, one has to ask “why?”

When a major developer shovels that much money into a local election in support of two specific candidates, one naturally has to ask “why?”

When a Sacramento TV news station airs a report questioning the propriety of the return address of said mailing — from a PAC calling itself everything under the sun except “developer,” one surely has to ask “why?”

“Selling out to developers?” Nope, it’s a lot more than “just a slogan;” it’s a legitimate question. Now, calling a candidate “50 shades of fool?” That’s a slogan — and a silly one at that.
