It is very rare that I recommend candidates for office since so often soon after election these candidates seem to turn against the public. But after many interviews of the candidates for EID, I would like to endorse Jake Flesher for the EID Board. He is really a breath of fresh air.
His three main pluses for me is that he is not connected with any special interests, his genuine desire to represent the general ratepayer and his main concern of reducing EID’s debt. The current board appears to be planning to continue working with developers in order to again build out infrastructure on the back of the current rate payers. Instead of blindly following counsel, Jake is committed to ask questions and push back.
I’ve been amazed by the amount of untrue rumors being told about Mr. Flesher which makes me wonder as to why he is such a threat to the establishment. Most of those spreading rumors have not even talked to him. Another concern that makes Jake a plus is that we are about to be in the fight of our lives with the state in order to keep the water rights we now have in this county. Who better to represent that battle than a lawyer that is on our side?
The public would be well served by Jake Flesher. If you have any questions from my interviews of all 4 candidates, please feel free to call me … 530-391-2190.
