Election Congratulations


As an elected board member of the Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District, I applaud the voters of Chaffee County for their recent election of a member to the Upper Arkansas (River) Water Conservancy District Board. Water management is too important an issue to be left to officials who are not elected.

We should all support encouraging the legislature to reform the Conservancy District Act to allow for all seats on the boards to be elected. A smaller improvement to the Act would be to allow the boards themselves to be able to ask the courts to have elections. In the meantime, I encourage you to petition for future elections when seats become vacant.

Let the bells of democracy ring.
