Member, Virgin Valley Water District, Mesquite, 2 year term.
Resume: We moved to Mesquite 13 years ago. We were down here playing golf with some friends in late February. We got to Ely and it was snowing and blowing, all our warm clothes were in trunk. Jackie said why do we live up here (Boise, Idaho). By September we were back to stay. Owned a small business for a couple of years, was very involved with the Chamber, served on the board for several years…
1. What additional steps would you put in place to prevent future corruptions?
We need to get better public input, must keep the agenda open. Any voter should be able to put something on the agenda. A corrupt official, if they get control of the agenda, can cause lots of damage. We could not get control of Mike Winters until we got back control of the agenda.
2. What do you see as most pressing issue facing the water board?
The district has enough water for the future growth of this valley, the problem is that we share the aquifer with Utah and Arizona with NO agreements. We need to make sure we get our share.
Bill Tanner, who is also vying for this office did not supply a response to the questions from the League Of Women Voters of Mesquite.
