Hurry! Candidates needed for the Helix Water District Board!
The deadline to run for Helix Water District Board is August 10, and we need good candidates to replace incumbents!
This is the Board that CalAware forced to go back and restart a rate hike over a series of Brown Act violations.
The bright spot on the Board is Kathleen Hedberg; the others are dismissive of anyone daring to speak at public meetings. Their vindictiveness towards Hedberg for not being “their kind” of team player led them to muzzle her requests for info, skipped her as VP in their customary rotation, and removed her from outside boards.
Muse proposed prohibiting Board Members from speaking with media; eventually they “only” required personal opinion disclaimers. Do they really think people can’t recognize an e-mail address or letterhead? Their opinion of the public is low.
On August 1 they extended – early – the current Employees’ Association contract until 2015, which will increase benefits if cost of living turns out to be over 2%. Why limit options early? How will the Healthcare Act affect benefit options? Are you a gambler? 4 out of 5 Board Members rolled the dice on our behalf.
Muse, Linden and Smith seek reelection. Do you live in their divisions? (http://hwd.com/board/index.htm) If so, run!
