The EID races for District 2 and District 4 this year seem to be a battle of philosophies for the future of our county. Interestingly, candidates Coco and Englefield have support from a very diverse base of the agricultural, residential, environmental and construction community. This is not an easy feat in this day and age.
I cannot speak to the interests of others in regard to these candidates, but when 50-plus farmers gather in the middle of harvest in support of Dr. Coco and Rich Englefield (and their views of water rights and common-sense approaches), I am impressed. This is exactly what happened two weeks ago.
In the mind of this farmer, our rural and agricultural environment is at stake in this election. And it’s now in the hands of the people of EID’s District 2 and District 4.
