I have exciting news! Today I am announcing my candidacy for re-election as Trustee of the North Shore Water Reclamation District. Since my election as a Trustee in November of 2020, I have been working diligently on many issues concerning wastewater treatment, including seeking ways to adapt treated wastewater for use in alternative sources such as irrigation of farmland; finding ways to reduce phosphorus, which can inadvertently seep into clean water and ultimately can destroy some marine life; and taking part in federal and state sampling and monitoring of wastewater for early signs of potential virus outbreaks.I am running for re-election because I truly believe that treating wastewater is critical for public health and vital to a healthy environment. I have enjoyed being actively engaged in the issues and look forward to earning your vote.
