Prada will destroy Apple Hill

By
From page A5 | November 04, 2013 |

EDITOR: To the great dismay of the agricultural and business communities, ratepayers, and longtime informed, rational observers of EID, the Mountain Democrat has endorsed Greg Prada for the EID Board. Mr. Prada has made it clear the last few years with statements during public and private meetings, and on his Website, that his primary goals are to eliminate the Agricultural Water Rate Classification, divest the District of Project 184, and find a new general manager who will collaborate with his destructive agenda. During the campaign, Mr. Prada has moderated his rhetoric, and for the sake of political expediency, modified some of his positions. A one-hour face-to-face meeting for the purposes of obtaining an endorsement from the Mountain Democrat Editorial Board does not cleanse or expunge Mr. Prada’s multi-year track record relative to the El Dorado Irrigation District.
