|Great news! There are THREE outstanding new candidates running for seats on the Marin Municipal Water District board: Matt Samson (geographic division I), Ranjiv Khush (III), and Jed Smith (IV). Electing them should lead to decisive action on water supply planning, improved financial management, and a much stronger focus on disaster preparedness.
CO$T is enthusiastically supporting Samson, Khush and Smith. Each brings something important that is new and necessary to MMWD. They are not a slate. But all three are stepping up because MMWD is woefully unprepared for severe drought. That is the conclusion of a June 2022 Marin Civil Grand Jury report critical of the current MMWD board’s inaction. Each of these new candidates has strong community support and endorsements from many local leaders. That’s an important validation of their caliber and the widely recognized need for change at MMWD.
If you live in MMWD territory, the election outcome affects you. Even if your MMWD representative’s seat is not up for grabs this year, you should get involved. Donate! Volunteer to knock on doors, host or attend a gathering, place lawn signs, write letters, or anything else that helps!
