The Rancho Santa Fe Post

Op-Ed: Marlene King Rocks!

Tagged in

Today brought another table outside the Post Office. Another petition to sign but this time it was with a twist.

The paper presented was for objecting to the rate increase the Santa Fe Irrigation District is proposing to bring. Marlene King ran for the Board from Fairbanks because she felt there should be more accountability for the users of the water since, after all, they are paying the freight. Well the lady at the table to today was Marlene.

Of the five Board members two are opposed to the rate increase. Marlene, to her credit, has put her time and energy to work to back up what she believes is the right and fair course of action. She was there collecting objections to the increase. I am grateful as I had printed out mine at home but not brought it down to the SFID offices.

Other people were unaware of the right to object and to the oncoming deadline. I felt Marlene was someone special when she first took her place on the Board. Today, I was delighted to meet her and I am so impressed. Marlene, you rock and I am now a big fan.
