Objective 1: Equal Representation
San Juan Water District covers a large portion of Sacramento County, and a small portion of Placer County (Granite Bay Area). However, 4 of the 5 San Juan Board members live in Granite Bay. Granite Bay only makes up 13% of San Juan’s population, but they have controlled our water district for many years. They force unfair water contracts on Sac-county residents; they borrow money and put us in debt, and continually raise our wholesale (and retail) water rates. They are naturally biased towards Granite Bay and approve projects that primarily benefit them, but all San Juan residents (us) must pay for them. This is not right! Mitch & Mike are the only candidates who do not live in Granite Bay. Help us FIX San Juan. Vote Mitch & Mike for equal representation!
 
Objective 2: Manage The Merger
The San-Juan Board is again pushing an outside merger with the Sac-Suburban-Water-District. This is a big threat to any San-Juan resident. Sac-Suburban needs to pay off approximately $100M of debt, has a need for (our) water treatment facilities, and would like more secure (our) water rights. If merged, Sac Suburban would become the dominant voting population within San Juan. There is a risk of being out voted and losing control of our water district, of spreading our water rights way too thin, and a threat of complicated water contracts to pay off Sac Suburban debt. Help us protect our water rights, our wallets, our water treatment facilities, and our voting strength. Vote Mitch & Mike to manage the merger.
