Parker Development recently formed a new political action committee that contributed $34,000 funding to the EID director election campaigns of Richard Englefield
and Dale Coco.
Darn right there's a reason Parker Development is contributing big time to elect Dale Coco and Richard Englefield
They illicitly rule the EDC Chamber
and they now have identified Coco and Englefield
as two more prospective elected representatives they can buy.
LINK - County chamber endorses Coco, Englefield
The Chamber of Commerce rents a county property and therefore must be politically silent?
Here's the real info - LINK - Englefield said at the time he was asked to serve on the board at Grizzly Flat, the water district was only a couple of years away from closing its doors.
"The board disintegrated before my eyes and at the same time there was a big turnover in staff.
But after getting organized, he
said they redid the accounting system, raised rates and cut expenses, which included eliminating one position.
"Our five-year plan only took three years to accomplish by working smarter.
Englefield said it was during his time on the board that he also gained experience in infrastructure improvements and water rights when the Grizzly Flat board undertook a $1.7 million infrastructure project that not only helped preserve its water but also its water rights.
then assumed the job of documenting those water rights all the way back to the 1880s, adding it took him seven years to accumulate the 4,700 documents now on file in the office.
said that experience helped him understand EID's water rights as well.
Asked why he is running, Englefield said he wants to help, but also acknowledged that serving on EID's board would be a fantastic challenge for him given EID's size and complexity.
As far as what distinguishes him from his
said it is his
ability to work with people in a positive fashion.
Why would Parker donate to Rich
election if it was not in there better interest?
Why would Rich
develop and upgrade the water system that worked in Grizzly Flats that was not needed ? unless more development, where he
has a part time house so he
could enter politics to get elected to the CSD, that if the area develops he
can gain and sell? plus gain political experience?
took the long route to gain the experience since his
first thought of running for the county board of supervisors didn't work out...
I would rather go for a write in candidate then Rich
or anyone on the ballot.... As for Westlands project getting special treatment?
Follow the water in California...
Phil as much as I would hate to see Rich
voted into office under his false statements and claims, I cannot disagree with you about your choosing of the lesser of the evils for your vote!
The Bone/Parker money for Englefield
has nothing to do with "MPG".
