Gary Kremen has been very good on the Water Board.
"As a businessman, Kremen said he is also "well-acquainted with fiscal responsibility."
I like people like that, to bad most politicians don't know a thing about it.
Gary Kremen is really pro-Mountain View (he use to live there):
* He wants to stop the Water District from collecting State Water District property taxes from the 90% of Mountain View that does not get Water District water. The opponent has not done anything about this unfair tax.
* He wants to stop the Water District from making the same mistakes they did in Cuesta Annex. It cost the District $20,000,000 and is still going up!
* He wants the Water District to use more innovation in water conservation with more funding specifically in Mountain View.
* He is President of our neighbor water district, Purissima Hills Water District (unincorporated Santa Clara County and the majority of Los Altos Hills) where he focused on water conservation.
* He is Chairman of the leading behavioral water conservation firm in the US (local here in the Bay Area), which Palo Alto and now Mountain View uses for water conservation.
He just got his first two city council majorities: Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills. He wrote an extensive plan in sustainability for the Water District: regional water self-sufficiency, water reuse, water conservation , creek restoration, creeks and the homeless, retail water relations, and innovation in water.
Have been endorsed by mayors of Campbell, Los Gatos, Cupertino, Palo Alto, Los Altos Hills and Menlo Park. Have lots of county wide endorsements such as District Attorney Jeff Rosen and Sheriff Laurie Smith as well as Supervisors Ken Yeager and Cindy Chavez. Assembly persons Paul Fong and Mark Stone have endorsed him as has Evan Low. He has statewide endorsement such as John Chiang, Controller, David Jones, Insurance Commissioner and Steve Westly, former Controller. Have national endorsements such as Congressperson Eric Swalwell.
Seems like a great candidate, who has lots of experience. Also appears to be looking out for Mtn View residents. He'll get my support.
All these endorsments by developer-bent politicians! Not someone to trust.
On his wikipedia page, Mr Keremen proudly associates with the good ol' boys of Duke Energy - remember Duke - the company that poisoned rivers in North Carolina? Not sure this is the right man to guard our water resources.... Web Link
Looks like he converted some utilities to endorsing solar -- that is what we need to do -- good for him -- get coal burners to put money being renewables.
Is it accurate at Web Link that we are paying property taxes for water we do not get? Where does out water come from?
Don't miss out on the discussion!
