CC Times had a story about proposed tunnels to take our water and send it south. Seems we were promised no taxpayer money would be used to plan it. Then they found out there was taxpayer money, $50,000,000.

Kinda like ” We are are building a tunnel and you are paying for it”

Remind you of anything else?

I’d like to know who thought it was a smart idea to send our water down south anyway? When the decision was made long ago, someone had a peek into the future. That someone was thinking ahead…. and the other people werent thinking at all!

Kill the tunnels.

@Iftheyonlyhadabrain – Years ago I was fortunate to visit the Gene Autry Museum in LA when they had an exhibit covering California’s Water Wars. It was absolutely fascinating; I learned so much. Truly taught me how Central and Southern CA are dependent on Northern CA for water.

And now we have the tunnels. Water War #2? Some things in life never change.

CCosta Supervisors have replace Mark Peterson’s vacant position with retired Superior Court Judge Diana Becton.

The interesting part is she apparently lifted large parts of her application from other sources, such as Martin L King, without acknowledging that they were not hers. I’m not sure she would have acknowledged the fraud if she hadn’t been unanimously ratted out by someone. Contra Costa County Sheriff David Livingston called for supervisors to disqualify the judge and another applicant, Assistant District Attorney Tom Kensok over unattributed material in their application packages. Board of Supervisors didn’t mine though since they elected her.

I can’t find the meeting on line – does anyone else know if it’s up? I’d really like to take a look at her application, too.

Way to go Board of Supervisors!! Same old, same old!

RE: Superior Court Judge Diana Becton. Shouldn’t this apply?

“The full Legislature has approved a bill by Assembly member Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) which would assess a financial penalty on candidates who lie on ballot statements when seeking political office. AB 894 now goes to the governor for his signature.”

There’s a big difference between omitting quotation marks when quoting someone (she admitted the error) and lying about your qualifications. Some of you are making a mountain out of a molehill.

We don’t live in a perfect world. Also – ALL the candidates are lawyers, not librarians. You have to keep things in perspective.

She was chosen. Get over it.
