I am writing today regarding the exorbitant increase San Lorenzo Valley Water District is trying to push down our throats. I just keep saying to myself, "Are they kidding?"
Then I think about Felton Friends of Locally Owned Water and how the residents of Felton (and the Valley) got together to slay the evil corporation of Cal Am to keep our water service local and to fight against huge rate increases. Wait a minute, the exact thing we all banded together to fight is happening again, except not by a huge multinational corporation. No, it's happening by our very small local water company who has little oversight who now thinks they can do and charge whatever they want because they are the only game in town.
SLV Water, are you sure you want to do this? Relying on the hope that you won't get 4,000 signatures by October 24, and that Prop 218 will allow this $6 million "campus" to be built on a swamp is no way to conduct business.
Valley residents, we must rise up again and fight the local giant this time. Send in your letters (although who is counting the letters? Hmmm seems like a conflict of interest to have the opposition letters sent to the water board secretary when there isn't one). SLV residents: Just say no!
