I am a candidate from South Loveland for the Little Thompson Water District board to serve as a voice for customers, including seniors, on future water policies and rate-setting including the issue of water for fracking purposes if it comes at the expense of other customers or leads to a rise in rates.
Currently I am on the Advisory Board of the Larimer County Office on Aging and “graduated” from Larimer County 101 in 2011, a class run by the county to encourage more informed citizens who would be a resource on local boards. I have a college degree in Economics (Business), a teaching degree (MAT) in American history, and a doctorate in History. I am comfortable with analyzing budgets.
The last election for the water board was in 2006 election and was decided by fewer than 100 people bothering to vote in a district stretching from County Road 20 in Larimer County to County Road 5 in Weld County and including portions of northern Boulder County. All water customers may vote for any candidate but candidates must live in certain district.
I am in a three-way race in Ward 6.
I am urging readers to vote in person May 8 at the Little ThompsonWater District Office where you drop off your water payment– 835 East Hwy 56, just east of L & M, a mere quarter mile west of the town of Berthoud.
