Wed Dec 14 7pm: (Probable) election night at Joshua Basin Water District board meeting

The Joshua Basin Water District Board of Directors did not choose a candidate for the open Board seat on Wednesday, but we’ve heard that they did narrow the field from 8 to 4. The Board adjourned the meeting, and will continue it Wednesday, December 14 at 7pm at the Helen Gray Education Center on 6601 White Feather Road.

Background: There is an open seat on the Board following the death of controversial Board member Michael Luhrs on Nov. 9, 2011.

The JBWD Board will select a candidate to serve in Luhrs’ seat until the next election, which will be in November 2012.

Attendance (and statements) by concerned and knowledgeable members of the community at next week’s meeting could help determine which candidate the Board ultimately selects.

We will be attending this meeting to show our support for the candidacy of KAREN TRACY. Karen is currently a member of the JBWD’s Citizen Advisory Committee.
