This is my response to the article “Pine Strawberry water problems must be addressed” by Ray Pugel.
Why would I have to meet you at all? To get your approval first? This superior attitude is just another example of the PSWID board behavior that they know what’s best for us. PSWID has proven that it’s not been working for the best interest of the Pine-Strawberry community when they ignore many strongly voiced opinions.
It seems to me that you didn’t have a problem organizing a recall for the prior board when the sale of your Milk Ranch Well was being threatened, so we shouldn’t have a problem recalling the current board when our financial well-being is being threatened.
You asked for suggestions as to how to reduce costs, but when one of the board members wanted to make suggestions that could have saved money, you didn’t listen to him. Why would anyone think that you really want to hear anything from the rest of us?
You and Gary Lovetro have never been voted in by the Pine-Strawberry community (just assigned by the PSWID board) and a recall would give the community a chance to really voice their opinion about your leadership.
