Readers Write: Account for your service

Mr. Otis Wollan,

After 20 years as our representative on the Placer County Water Agency board of directors, I challenge you to account for your service in public debate.

I am a 30 year resident of District 5, your area. The water crisis facing us is not new. We are faced with catastrophic wildfire, but what have you done to assist the installation of needed fire hydrants. Wells are going dry all around us, but what have you done to bring water to desperate neighborhoods.

Our voters deserve a chance to hear us debate the issues. Please contact me so that we can arrange appropriate times and places that will best serve our constituents.
