Riverside Water District Position 5

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: If the district has 100 or more voters, a candidate must be a registered voter in the district and a landowner in the district.

Outreach to residents is essential. Personal contact is the most effective method of communication. The District has sponsored programs on maintaining your water lines, irrigation systems, and plumbing. We also sponsored a septic system repair grant program for residents. The District sends out periodic mailings some of which focus on water conservation. We also maintain a website with water information available to everyone. It is regularly updated and has information about what the District is currently working on.
The District is in the process of upgrading our water storage tanks. With upgraded connections between wells and tanks we have redundancy in case of increased demand. Encouraging water conservation by maintaining lines, checking for leaks and using water saving appliances and faucets will provide water savings. Sponsoring presentations on water wise landscaping help people reduce water use provide the attractive landscaping so many people want. I support long range planning for water use coordinating with demand from increased growth in the water district territory. New facilities are both necessary and expensive. Reducing unneeded or careless water usage will help ensure an adequate supply of clean safe water for our patrons. I regularly monitor activities that might affect the water recharge zone like development in the recharge zone, or check development plans for large amounts of paving, use or disposal of hazardous substances that would degrade our water supply.
I served four years as Treasurer and was responsible for developing and presenting our budget to the Budget Committee. All District commissioners review and approve each months’ financial statements and have input into expenditures beyond a specified dollar amount.

I bring a set of skills and experience to the Board. I worked for county government and an familiar with practices needed to meet state and federal requirements. I have had leadership training and have served on 20 plus boards, government committees and private organizations. I like working with diverse groups of people and am willing to invest the time and effort to make whatever project I’m working on a success.
